When designing something like the logo below, what is the right approach to start?
I face problems with angles. I can’t determine the angle from the picture and incorporate that into my design.
How do I determine/figure out the measurement of the angle of an existing or already-finished logo?
Should I decide the angle first then start constructing? Or without deciding anything, do I simply start constructing and do whatever the design demands?
Like the picture I have attached, I want to know the angle between two bars of the ‘A’, so that I can know which angle would be perfect to flip it in the opposite direction.
The example logo is made of simple geometric shapes – a circle, equilateral triangles, and rectangles.
Draw something like this: Here I have a circle, two equilateral triangles and a line – all have a thick stroke.
Convert the strokes to paths by doing Object > Expand
Draw an additional rectangle along the top of the shapes
Hold down Alt/Option and click and drag with the Shape Builder tool to remove the pieces that are not required.
Open up the Pathfinder, and press the Unite button to unite all the pieces as one shape.
