    Trying to fit the circles in any order willy-nilly and…hazam! "I used the golden ratio to draw a logo". That's so NOT proportionate in any "golden" way… Seriously my fellow artists, drop the golden logo bullshit.

    If you made a series where you take popular logos and essentially reverse engineer them using the golden ratios that would be bad ass

    Can you explain what "setting up the proper document does?

    Need some help. After doing this tutorial Im getting alot of "artifacts" after merging the circles with the shape builder tool. The curves arent smooth, and you can tell where one circle ends and another begins. However, in outline mode the lines almost match perfectly. Why when I convert the circles to shapes I get random "bumps" and jagged edges???

    simelest way to explain why golden ratio is so awesome mathwise is explainable with A4 paper. if you fold it in half it has the same ratio. and its the most efficient way to space things without overlapping.

    I'd like to see the creation process of a new logo, not just show how the golden ratio fits in already exiting logos. Show us how to creat a logo, maybe from a picture

    Wow this video is really awesome! never thought about that. Btw what about the complex logo like KFC? How did I make that kind of logo with golden ratio? 🙂

    Great video, I would love to see a video on how to create the initial concept using the golden ratio, since its easier to reverse the process then to create. For example how does one know where and the distance to place each element etc. Thanks!

    Can you do a video explaining how to build a logo from scratch using the Golden Ratio?

    Apple logo is also in golden ratio

    This is hilarious. My maths tutor at Cambridge (Uni) told me there are people in the design world that think the golden ration exists as an absolute value. Every multiplier (including the 1.168 Will mentions) between 1.1 and 1.2 can do this (and most between 1.1 and 1.4183 can do this). I love it when Will says he 'could look up the maths on the internet, but he doesn't understand it.' – No sh*t Sherlock 🙂 🙂 🙂

    i think its not that easy to come up with a logo using it , I mean, i'm really amazed by the power of the golden ratio since … forever, and I always wondered how I could use it , but here we're using the golden ratio and applying it on twitter logo since we're only dragging the circles , can we do the same on an imaginary logo ? I would love to see the process cause i think that would be really difficult

    thank you

    The Golden Ration is a excellent tool.
    However; it is not always useful.
    For example, I've designed a logo for a local client and the GR was of great use when I got to the finalization stage. But one area of the logo requires the circle group to be aligned with both the left as well as the outer right straight-edge of the design. No manner of multiplying nor dividing would bring the circle group to the needed size. Instead, I held down Shift and Alt to manually bring the size down. And the inner circle automatically fell in place. It need to be noted that the Circle group consisted of to GR circles BEFORE I manually resized them for the design.

    Please Note: You DO NOT have to use the Golden Ration for logo designing. There are many awesome logos that do not use it. But it does help greatly. EDIT: Almost forgot a important tip. When you use the GR (or your custom shapes) to create logo/shapes, then make sure the shapes are touching/intersecting one another. Otherwise the Custom Shape took will join/remove areas that you did not want it to select.

    why is the golden ratio supposed to be more pleasant than other ratios?

  33. Fabitalism Avatar

    How do you saved the golden ratio? Do you have an extra file for this one?

    When I press the minus while using the shape builder tool, it changes to the delete anchor point tool… anyone has any idea why this happens?

  36. Robert Loyale Avatar

    The Golden Ratio is amazing. lol I try to use it as much as possible but to be 100% I default right back to the pen tool lol..Need to stop.

    You will only get the true golden rectangle by using the geometric method of constructing it, wich does not require mathematical calculations, and by doing it like that you might get a better understanding of it and why it works. Here's the geometric method:
