It is your voice in here, because a article here today, Rena is really cool. I guess you would say illustrator mainly, but there’s a little bit of Photoshop in here to UM story today, so I guys how to make it your own, really cool. I like urban brushstrokes, sort of logo designs and my inspiration for this would be the 100. These logo – I don’t know why I’m so obsessed that logo um, but like it’s really cool right.
So here’s just so you guys can get a look of it right. So my inspiration was sort of having like really cool brushstrokes. You know accents to your lines and whatnot, so in Mexico, like it’s very like abstract, I kind of herb and kind of really just cool with, like it’s just like written out and like a really cool script. Like way, I had a client who previously approached me with this logo, and I was just like hey: is there a way we can resemble this in a certain way and I’m just like, I actually don’t know entirely how to do it, but we figured it out In the long run, and not in something I didn’t know how to do, it was just how having it perform.
It be a little bit faster and quicker, rather than just really being really minuscule, with the the way that a brushstroke would actually act rather than actually, you know kind of like doing it by hand, and you know you won’t really get that aesthetic feeling that you Know it does what you can. You have to be like a brush font and whatnot. So that’s where this comes in handy right, so we have uh.
This is our little example here I just made a C logo really quickly. Just like you know kind of script. It out, as you guys saw on the Photoshop and whatnot good ol C logo. I guess I put a little two dashes on it and we’re going to call it claw right, cuz, like a little scratch, um yeah. As you can see, this, has this really cool little feel to it and just like it just gives it a little more character to it, and I think it’s really cool for if anyone wants to you know have that you know I guess ability to go ahead And perform or like a really cool brush stroke logo.
It’s really something to have in your arsenal right and I’ll, keep in mind as well that I’m using only one fun of like literally millions of different brush fonts. You can use to help illustrate this concept. So keep that in mind as well, and I’m going to start off inside Photoshop, for you guys we’re going to move into there something quickly, just really quick, little rundowns um. That way, we kind of get that whole thing started and just running into illustrators.
Really it’s a really tedious process, but it’s so much quicker, rather than kind of like really just trying to like make your mind. Think abstract. I also trying to make a certain thing. It’s really difficult trust me and I’m going to make it seem easy for you guys, so let’s go ahead and just jump into Photoshop and let’s get this thing going. Okay, so as for my quick rundown inside Photoshop, I do have my tablet in hand by the way it’s like the the $ 70 sort of Best Buy tablet.
You guys would get it’s just. What is I forgot, what it’s called, but it so calm like in into well. How do you say hi, you guys know what I’m talking about. However right, so let me go ahead. Just show you guys really quickly how I would go about it now. I have this really cool brush. I literally cannot remember when I found this brush, because I remember it took me literally an hour to find a brush.
That kind of like, like my mindset, had it, and I had something in my mind right and it took me forever to find it starts with PAP underscore zero. I will give you guys this one I’ll make sure I reference it I’ll try to find out. I hope there’s like a direct dialing. I can like see in the dye your brush um file, but yeah. This is a brush that I use and this brush here, but you don’t really need a tablet.
However, you know just having lunch is a little more handy for you, I mean you can still kind of illustrate like this. Is me doing the see again, you know you can still kind of illustrate the same thing. If you just have like a nice state of your hand, I would say right for your um with your mouse and whatnot, so you don’t really need a tablet. You can still create some very, very cool. You know, abstract, you know, kind of fun.
Looking brush sort of you know, logos and whatnot, which is kind of like free handing it if you guys wish to, but I did do it using the actual brush that it’s located right here now. Leave that and switch for you guys to use and all that good stuff and now, like yeah, I’m just using my tablet now and you kind of just see it gets a little more smoother, it’s a little more fun you can kind of, like you know, really Work, your angles work you’re, pretty much everything when it comes to like kind of having that, like literal freedom of of that, that actual hand motion right rather than trying to do it with a mouse.
So if there’s an investment you want to have, I would think you know a tablet is definitely it there’s no way. Oh you know, you don’t know you meat, and so you don’t have a kind of thing right. So yeah, that’s pretty much like really all. I really want to go ahead and illustrate for you guys, but I already have this claw thing where I’m going to use the same exact one as before. So not the oyster, okay start time kind of make something else up on, because it’s literally just I just kind of made it up right.
So I want to go ahead and just kind of say once you kind of finish drawing it we’re just do an A and like a bee, trying to look cool right. Let’s just do a bee. This is a Navy logo. So I was like hey. I want a Navy logo and I want to uh seize now what you go ahead and just kind of make this look like a brush like thing and then, for example, 100. These also 100, these logo – or this like claw, a little logo here right.
So the way I would go about this is by the way, if you have multiple layers, if you need, because if you want to do like some little accents like I’m about to try to do for a second like just little little accent marks right here and Here and there and whatnot kind of having like little things, if you guys want to you, know, have fun with and whatnot, but if you do have multiple layers, just merge them all together right, because we’re going to be doing is I’m going to take my claw.
I’m going to press ctrl, J and then ctrl e ctrl J is going to actually duplicate the entire group for us and then ctrl he’s going to merge it all together and then all you would have to do is actually just take this claw copy, throw it Right in the illustrator, as a matter of fact, we’ll turn off this little white background, because we have a black brush I’ll turn that off the claw example as well, and let’s go ahead.
Hmm actually, is it inside this yeah. The image is inside the example. So let’s drag that out here: it’s locked, okay, relax, let’s open it and drag it in there! There we go now! So if I were to go ahead and take this and we’re going to make this a little bit bigger right cool, what you can do is image trace it. This is uh. This is one of those things that I kind of don’t do very often, but when it comes to like these kind of logos, it would help out quite a bit right if you kind of have a a quick vector of it and also kind of keep that Brush like feel to it, I’m so I’m going to just click on this image here we’re going to go to object, image trace, make it expand and immediately it just takes our is there’s a table with this right.
I forgot how to open the table. There’s a table if you have a certain color, my voice is like going for some reason. If you have a certain color that you want to kind of pick out, there is a way to, of course, like how do you say: uh different de fishery de fishery. There Fisher different de fishery if defit differences differentiate. Oh that must be it differentiate. That’s a hard word: okay, let’s go ahead, and just like okay, whatever anyway, there’s a way to uh, help yourself and pick the right color for it until then right.
This is a very, very simple it of course, kind of quickly leave that same little. Maybe if you had like a certain brush kind of, I guess, like you know, wiggle and whatnot, our brush kind of accent or whatever, like you, may have a nice little flow to it doing. This would be just very simple, very easy for you and as well just so you know, there’s a white back, I’m so behind this right, so we got to get rid of that as well.
Okay, so now that we have this part done, this is pretty much like that cool part. This actually looks pretty cool so like I’m not going to lie like that, does look pretty badass and if you kind of like look over here at the hundred things logo, if we just zoom in a little bit, you can kind of see the resemblance of the Matter of fact that they probably did use image, trace and whatnot all right, I’m not going to call out or whatever it’s just I’m just literally kind of like referencing as what I kind of see if they might have using a trace.
So I feel like going to be a good idea as well to use it as well so right. So we can’t have this looking right here right, but you’re going to say to yourself. I kind of want it to look a little bit more cooler a little bit more aesthetic error, I’m going to need some kind of really cool font. Now, of course, I told you guys in the brush pack brush the font pack we’re going to be using this beautiful font called cog font right.
It’s up here now. The reason why I chose this font cuz. I personally wanted this font and I one other client – and I was like hey – is this a nice little cuz we’re looking at the ends of the farmer, I’m looking at currently the ends of the font. You know some of the side marks here and it was like yeah. That’s perfect, that’s exactly what I’m kinda looking for. So me thinking. This would be incredibly difficult to try to illustrate and get perfectly right.
You know and make it look as abstracted and as still as clean as possible. It’s like a brush wood. That blew my mind. I was like there’s no entire way. That would be able to illustrate this. The way it should be right so using a font is not a bad deal. So, of course, if I were, if I were you if I would check up. Finally, I wasn’t haven’t already guys didn’t download in my brush pack, I’m kissing brush pack, my font pack.
However, if you guys wants you of course, going to find a common type in like brushes like brush fonts and water, you get some really cool ones as well. This is just one that apply. You know kind of applied to me and I really like this one. As well so if I were to go look at my if I were to go ahead – and I look at my logo here and I’m going to say, there’s a couple curves here that maybe if I put in a C I’ll, get something like right here, where I can kind of have that part on this right left hand side here kind of curve here, but maybe that’s not enough.
Maybe a J would work here for this little hook right. Here’s what I would say right and I were to, of course, already kind of went through and kind of know the letters that I want to go for. But you can just kind of like envision a certain amount of letters that kind of have a curve which are be looking forward. I have that applied naturally right. So, of course, an e here right to kind of have that so I’ll have these little marks here, but, except for have the same exact little uh.
How would you say, like the exact same Emaar going on over here, because how you see how C has a little bit different mark here? You see how J has a little bit of different mark here. Let’s go ahead and just type in like I forgot what I did actually, but let’s go ahead and see X. Maybe X has a different like little part. There. Maybe M does right you’ll just kind of kind of go through and let me say, L the same one as well.
You, okay, so you it seems like it has a lot more longer jokes here, but it’s definitely different than the e in the. U here right. So this is where, of course, having multiple fonts or multiple different items, and hopefully I mean. Hopefully you have multiple letters in the font itself, but you know just kind of having that be a game plan right, so go ahead and start off with the e first or Chester all for the e we’re going to make this fairly big for now right and If you guys did not know already, I was going to take it that so I can just have that always on hand and pretty much.
I click over here. If you guys it, I’m already going to take a font into an actual object by just going to object, expand just like so make sure the expand object is on and the expand fill is on you, press, okay, and, as you guys didn’t see, you guys will Have now a vectorized version of the font itself, so you see some of these little floaty pieces here, I’m going to delete these for now. I don’t want to have too many floaty pieces to kind of like manage and handle right some of these little smaller ones.
Probably like not realistic to have inside your your-your-your, alright cuz, it’s not going to be able to be seen to well. Alright! So just take some of these things out, but uh just say right there, it’s pretty good! Now I’m going to go ahead and take my pen tool and I’m going to say I’m going to. We want this right-hand side of the e right, so I’m go ahead and take my pen tool kind of just kind of just make it like a little slash going down right.
This separation here is very, very common. It’s just kind of like you know hey. This indicates when I go ahead and highlight if I press a – and I highlight these two things that indicate so there’s two different shapes going on here now, because we have a slash going through with the pencil mark that we just created. So if I were to go to Windows and go ahead and go to path, finder you’ll see if I go ahead, not path, finder you’re, going to need all that stuff in a second.
But I don’t know why. I said that, but just that’s also thing you want to have, but it’s Shave shape builder tool, which is shift a manner keyboard which is located right. Here is the way to kind of help. Your illustrator, you know, cut things out that are separated right or you want to separate or, or you want to, you know, take out or apply a different object to whatever you guys understand right.
This is a plus button right here and, if you’ll hold also there’s a minus one, if I were to click, it would actually delete it. If I hold nothing – and I just click just like I’m going through right now in this right-hand side – it’ll go ahead and separate the shapes for us and there we have this right. So I want to kind of say I’ll leave all this extra extra stuff and, let’s take everything, that’s pretty much what I would probably want right, which is really all just the stuff that’s connected, that’s already vectorized and all that good stuff.
Um I’m going to go ahead now, and this is where the tricky part comes in right, so the the whole keeping and natural things going to be really hard. That’s like all right, I guess keeping the right, fonts and mine would help you know kind of lining up certain like lines were here, so it kind of like flows better. But then you have all this empty space here. Somehow that just say hey, let’s just say if we hold ctrl and then you naturally your hold shift right and like make it bigger and smaller.
But this time I’m going to kind of flirt with it around and kind of make it bigger and smaller on our own see what happens if you put it over here Ryan, I’m going to highlight this entire thing, I’m going to say we can actually cut out With a shape builder tool right, holding alt cut out some of these spots here and if you say like it’s really, you can see how this is really big. Like a bulge of you know black going on here and you want to say hey, I doesn’t really look that brush mark that we want to have highlight all again.
You can take it hold alt get inside here, delete some of the stuff that you think needs to be deleted. If you want to have a little more extra here, you want to have it flow into here. You want to have it flow into there. You just want to have certain little things float just like, so I’m like a like a paintbrush would right. You would have like certain spots it to get painted over, but then you can get something like this right and this looks way more natural weight just way.
Fun, I guess you would say uh how you say way fun all right, let’s use English, but you know just more natural and a very appealing, you know urban kind of look to an account looks really really nice right. So that’s like the one part of the e and we just kind of like expand a little bit just holding ctrl and just kind of figuring things out, and I would just do it one more time. But this is pretty much the rinse and repeat process that you guys would go with I’m going to delete this one.
We’re going to take this we’re going to tape in, let’s just say, geez, pretty cool asses black. Hmm, I think we’re just going to go with like a little bit of a C and say cut this out and kind of have that be on the the the see that we have so okay, we’re going to take a seat object, expand it cuz. I forgot to let that was going for it, but whatever we’re going to take the pen tool, split that in half, just like so again highlight it like before shift em on our keyboard for the shape ability which is located right here once again, click on it Take it out we’re going to leave all the extra flingy foggy stuff cuz, that’s not probably really illustrating, and it really just see that very well in a logo anyway.
So we’re going to take this now, I’m going to just go ahead and flip it vertically. No yes, okay, I go and see if I can, like kind of have it just a little extra some something going on at this little curve here. Alright, we’re trying to make it look a little fun kind of have expanded up a little bit more. Okay. Let’s see if we want to maybe do a little more as well alright, so I got something like this just going to overlap it, I’m going to go ahead and highlight it again with the a tool which is basically what does a tool called again.
The selection tool right, deluxe, yeah direct session tool and I’m going to press shift M, take the shape builder tool, and I just cut in some of these spots on – will delete this, and we wouldn’t want that. Maybe we want to have something like fun going on. Like they like in here, a little something going on here and here that looked pretty cool for like a seat, got rid of a lot of things. Oh jeez, that’s alright! Alright! That was my phone by the way.
Um, let’s see maybe like making you a little bit more skinnier kind of getting in here, but this is like a literal, the tedious part right. If I kind of wish I had it a little more, you know, in my mind, said I was going to go for, but this is actually not bad at all this little hard curve. He will just curve it in with the the good old. I don’t know what this tool would be called officially but, like the curve angle tool, sure we’re going to call it that or you can just like delete some points here and see if we can get.
You know a nice, something that looks disgusting. Ah yeah we’re going to go into here again take the minus tool or if I were to press minus on the keyboard and then we get so I’m a little bit better going on here. So a little bit better. You can get in here again kind of delete this kind of stuff here, let’s make more natural marks right, take this again and maybe we’ll make this little curve a little bit better.
Well, yeah, it’s a little bit too tedious from to do at the moment, but as you can see, that see looks pretty cool now, like a little backsplash curve. That’s going in here the little brush mark and you can just keep on going. You know you can keep on going out like right here would be a want to apply to up here. Art apply to as well times to stick a brush in kinda circle. Yeah like up here, I’d apply to over here.
You do some really cool things over here as well and like you, of course, probably do the same thing with the e over there, and if you want to you, see how, like the back of some of these letters, have these really fun little uh sort of Like vivid kind of patterns going on, you can definitely just apply that kind of stuff over on the you know the size of the logos, if you guys wanted to do that as well with the hairs for my example, as you can see it once again, right And it’s just really fun really cool.
It’s a really attractive way to go ahead and just go approach. Your logos and stuff like that, if you were it’s, just really cool, to have in the back of your play, if you you had a client II was just like, we can ask them that looks like this and you just not entirely sure how to do it Without you know, putting an excessive amount of time in it or just getting the exactly they might have had if they showed you a font and you’d be like hey, I could actually make a custom letter and then apply the font that he gave me and kind Of give you know that you know abstract sort of brushed, look to it and kill the game.
So hopefully you guys enjoyed today’s article here today. It was very fun, very cool right. I think it was a really cool thing just to have in your as a logo, designer and stuff and just have fun with it out the brush. By the way I put in the scription down below, like I said before and yeah, if you guys end up using it, please tweet at me ask to HQ if you have anything really cool that just kind of like applied to this tutorial.
