    Hello will, i came across your video today and i just wanted to say thank you for your advice on the rich black coloring and how to use some of the short cuts. I was just wondering where did you get the font you used, i really like it and i was wondering if i can use it for a shirt design I've been stuck on. I have my own clothing line and i was looking for a script font and when i saw your video i fell in love with it.

    Hey Will, love your videos! They are super helpful. I want to start doing logo design for churches in my area. Do things like logos, message artwork, poster designs, etc. What do you think would be the best way to get my name out there? I just started doing graphic design about a year ago so I'm not stellar yet but I want to try to start doing design for other people and get better. Thanks!

    Little question: how come when I copy the logo to PS it fills the badge and text Instead of the strokes?

    Hi Will, I have no problem vectorising a logo image. I can do that well and usually get good results. However, I have seen other people making the background of a logo imported into illustrator CS6 and other lower versions transparent. They have used the magic wand I think and have made the background checkered and then are able to place it onto another background of a different colour. I followed the exact steps using Ai 17.1 and it doesnt have the same function (very annoying). Surely there must be a way to do these basic tasks in this version Will :))

    Hello again Will. Thanks for your reply.
    I watched that video you recommended, but I already knew that function and how to do it. What I find difficult to get decent results with is actually taking a clients jpg. logo image and converting it to vector. Sometimes it works using this function and sometimes it doesnt. But I never get  consistent results. Say if I make the background transparent using and then import the TIFF file into Ai, when I then image trace to convert to vector it makes the image fuzzy and puts the background back in as a white rectangle around the perimeter. I hope you know what I mean. Is there any help you can offer ?
    Cheers Peter

    Hello thanks for the video. Is there any chance you could show us how to import an existing company logo and make the background of the logo transparent and then vector it using Adobe Illustrator 17.1. This is something I am having trouble with at the moment.  Thanks in advance. Peter.

    When I try to "Minus Front" a message comes up saying "The filter produced no results. Please select two intersecting paths."
    It's the first time I've ever used illustrator so I have no clue what this means! 
    Great video despite my lack of knowledge on this programme! 🙂

    Haha You're funny. "Nope. Didn't work at all." I love your tutorials! Sooo easy to follow and understand!

    Nice vid Will, interesting exercise I could suggest to my students. Just a personal suggestion about creating a regular cut-out, I like. 1. Create a shape, increase the line stroke as desired,  2. Expand object (or expand appearance if required, as in your example because a filter has been used). Another trick to make a cut-out of two shapes is CMD+8 with two selected objects, the object in front will cut-out the object on the back.
