  • Clipping mask

    Im sure this is one of the easiest techniques in Illustrator. But what I would like to know is the easiest way to clip out the logo from the buisness card design. The dotted lines are the cards boundarys.
    Thanks

    Are you talking about the watermark image in the background and you just want the edges that go outside the dotted line clipped out?

    Easy. Draw a box to the size of the card (the dotted line), make sure it has a stroke only (no fill). Then select the box and the logo go under OBJECT/CLIPPING MASK and select MAKE.
    Just keep in mind the box draw has to be on the top layer and of course aligned properly.

    Is that what you meant?

      Yes thats what I ment. I wasnt selecting both the box and the watermark, just the box.

      Thanks for that.

        Shortcut, after you've selected both the box and the card, press CTRL/COMND-7.

        You can actually use a box with a fill, but you're just unable to see what's beneath the fill until you've made the clipping path.

          MarComm was meant to bridge the gap between people who knew how to do market research and people who know how to communicate. But that just creates silos and causes jockeying for position. It's part of...

          MarComm and just plain Comm are considered two separate fields too. Still can't figure out why.
          There seems to be a very tenuous line drawn at the manufacturing/visual boundary.
          Could be that...

          All true, but it's also part of the reason I think it's a very broad area. Continue through Walmart to the receiving docks and stockrooms at the back of the store where everything is still freight-boxed...

          I like the concept too...runs rings around the old one. But there's something about the horn shape. Look at more examples including the old logo, where the horns are a bit longer, more slender, and curve...

          Communication design is broader in scope because it uses elements that aren't graphics like audio, video, copywriting, performance, marketing, etc in addition to using graphics.
