    Really clever technique, I like the colourful logo but how would you transfer this into black and white while still making it meaning full?

    It's very complicated when i try to make template back into normal, I can't do anything. It's not freezing, but I just can't do anything.

    How do I delete the little parts at about 14:10? My shape builder wants to delete the hole pink section and or all of the blue shape. It won't just let me delete the small triangles above the blue.

    This would be an extreme pain in the ass to follow if I hadn't used photoshop before lol. I wish he'd explain even little things like zooming in for those that might not know "I'm using the x key to do y" etc.
