Example to Watch “Initials Logo Design”

I recently designed the initials logo for a business group starting with the letter J and P. Basically the business concept based on the simple and minimalist theme so I tried to connect J&P by adding some variation in design. In below video, I captured one of the concept of logo design process to share with my audience.

Here are the steps that you can note down to design the similar concept:

  1. Using Text layer, write letters. I wrote JP using Lucida Console font
  2. Convert letters into outline
  3. Reduce the gap between letters using backspace or through the mouse.
  4. Now change the color of both letters
  5. Draw a simple stripe using the Pen tool. (You can see the stripe design in video)
  6. Rotate the stripe with 30-45 degree angle.
  7. Place the stripe in the middle of J and P
  8. Select all layers together.
  9. Go to Pathfinder and click the Divide option. ( You can find Pathfinder under Window in top menu).
  10. Now select the downside of J and P and move down with the ‘down’ arrow key.
  11. In the same way, add some lift at the upper part of JP by selecting the layers. (Watch video for better view)
  12. Now Join the middle part of the stripe by selecting the layer using Pathfinder
  13. And now you are almost done with the design of initials.
  14. Move to add business name and tagline.
