This is my logo draft! My topic is about being gluten free so I wanted the text to be straight forward. I also want to incorporate wheat somehow because when I was doing some research, every logo I found about gluten used wheat as well. When eating gluten free, you have to cut wheat out of your diet, and that is one of the main factors of not eating gluten.
To make this, I first started with the oval shape using the ellipse tool. Then I chose a color to fill it in with. I wanted to do either a green or a cream color. I figured the green would make the wheat stand out best. I then went on to the text. I used the text tool to first type out “gluten free” then I did the “100%” after because I wanted it to be larger in size. I changed the font and played around with the stroke size and color. I went with a darker green for the stroke color. Next i used the paint brush for the stem of the wheat and then used the ellipse tool again to make the leaf shapes coming off of it. I filled them the same color as the steam and moved them around a bit.
I utilized the varsity lettering tutorials to help with creating the text. I struggled a little with Illustrator as it is fairly difficult to use. I feel like it is hard to make what I am envisioning. Some of the tools really threw me off. Something that kept happening while I was using the paint brush tool was that the line it was making had several lines within it and whenever I tried to change it, it would go straight back but eventually I got it to work.
I did not use any materials that were not mine. I created everything in Adobe Illustrator.
