Hi guys. I have been playing around a bit - and think the answer lives somewhere in compound paths, but can't quite get it right.
In the example below, I essentially want the anter to cut out it's outline shape into the axe. Same with the shield over everything.
This is essentially so I can place the logo over all sorts of backgrounds, without having to have a white outline on it.
Could someone point me in the right direction?
Basically what you want to do is the expand the white paths and minus them from the axes and the antlers using Pathfinder (Panel) > Minus Front.
Keep a copy of your drawing as it is as a backup if it doesn’t go right firsrt time.
If you think the job out carefully before you start you should be able to do the Pathfinder part in 4 operations.
