Making a logo in Illustrator: Google
After browsing through various Illustrator tutorials seeking inspiration, I fancied having a go at creating something a bit different.
This tutorial here demonstrates how to make a logo using only circles, and places emphasis on using the direct selection tool to select quadrants for deletion which form the G’s, L and E.
