    Negative space when typing


      Hey guys

      My name is Sorin and I really enjoyed your vid tutorials. As I couldn’t find the answer to an issue I have I hope you don’t mind if I have a question for you.


      I am creating a DVD label in Illustrator and I am only allowed to use two colors. Now I want to use the negative space (the background of the DVD) as the third color – so let’s say if I color the label in red and I cut a circle in it the original DVD color – silver - will show up as a third color.


      I am trying to do this with text (I have the background color blue) and I wanna put the title as negative space – so I am trying to type but how can I type to cut into the blue and not have the letters as a specific color to start with?


      I really hope you can help me with this.


      Thank you!
