How to Make a Logo with Shape Builder
Like with any design project, sketching out your ideas should be your first step. Think about elements that embody your (or your client’s) brand, and try to incorporate them into a logo design. From animal shapes and stylized icons to minimalist graphics and typographic elements, logos can feature almost anything.
But remember—a good logo is simple in form and should not be overly complicated. Sketch out some options until you’re happy with a single concept.
Import your sketch into Vectornator and select the Shape Tool. Look at the outside edges of your logo and pick out the curves and straight lines. Then, draw overlapping circles, polygons, or rectangles to create a rough draft of your design. The idea is to create your logo from the intersecting areas of these shapes.
This step may look strange since no clear form is emerging just yet, but in the next step, we’ll explain how you can use Shape Builder to create your final logo.
Multi-select all of your shapes and activate the Shape Builder Tool. Next, use Merge Mode to draw over the intersecting areas of your shapes. When you release your pen or cursor, this whole area will become one single element. Then, switch to Erase Mode to remove unnecessary areas.
Once you’re happy with your new vector shape, you can finalize your logo design by changing its colors and adding typography with the Text Tool.
