Tracing artwork

The next step is to work on the logo. Many books have been written about the importance of strategic thinking in approaching branding and logo creation. In this lesson, however, we will tackle only the very last part of this design process: creating the digital artwork of a logo from an existing scanned version of a shape. For this we will use Live Trace, a new feature of Adobe Illustrator CS2, that enables you to convert scanned line-art or bitmap images to vector graphics. More information about this feature can be found in the Creating Vector Content Using Live Trace guide provided on the Adobe Creative Suite 2 Classroom in a Book CD (Adobe Studio/White Papers/Live Trace.pdf).
