Here, we are using the word “BANDIT” to create negative space logo for our tutorial reference. Over
the white backdrop, the face of a
bandit has been roughly drawn. The sketch would be used within the blank or empty area of the letter
“A” in BANDIT.
The font and color have already been selected. A copy of the word BANDIT is created by pasting the
sketch layer in front (Cntrl+F).
Make an outline of “A” (Cntrl+Shft+O), cut it, delete the rest and then paste the “A” in front, so
that now only “A” is visible. Delete the internal or the inner parts of it by deleting the anchor
points until all are cleaned away.
Widen the letter from either sides by clicking on the anchors and nudging them.
Next is altering the color of the “A” to any color of your choice. Flip it, convert it into an
outline and lock it temporarily.
Trace out all the dark areas of this drawing using the pen tool. Note that it is only a rough bandit
logo template and not an actual one. Flip the outline to fill with some color of the selected
Convert the two filled patches into a compound path (Cntrl+8). Draw the hat
rim using the same process.
The next to draw in similar fashion
are the eyes. After it, the top portion of the hat is to be drawn and get it aligned with the
“triangle” of the “A”.
Intersect the shape of the “A”. Flip the background of the outline, select the two patches compounded
earlier into a single path and intersect them.
Group together the patch of the triangle, align the rim and the top of the hat with the central
Since the triangle is no longer needed, the entire figure is ungrouped. Change its color to brown,
for instance. Group the whole illustration and make a copy.
Paste the new face over the letter “A” of BANDIT. Create a new layer and paste the newly formed
BANDIT in front. Create outlines (Cntrl+Shft+O), delete the letter “A” from BANDIT. Align the height
and width of the new graphic with the other letters in BANDIT.
Turn the entire word to gray color, adjust its size and we have ready with us a negative spaced logo
graphic where the white space of the “A’ has been utilized to the fullest.
