How To Create a Vintage Logo in Adobe Illustrator

In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial we’re going to play around with Illustrator’s type effects to build a vintage style logo design.

    Thanks for another great upload, quick question though; why does snipping the hexagon fix the spacing of the stars? And why does it have to be the top anchor?

    Great work. #spoon graphics but the think is when made a logo in illustrator you can use RGB mode. it's okay but when it put in a t-shirt design you don't change the color mode in CMYK.
