Create Transparent Typography in Adobe Illustrator
Trends in graphic design come and go but some techniques stand the test of time. This tutorial will help you learn to create transparent typography in Adobe Illustrator, to use in all your graphic design projects.
Type out one letter. Make sure the letter is big and bold. Then type out your second letter. The letters have to be big and bold so that you can easily overlap them in the next step.
Pick out two different colors, one for each letter. Select both letters.
Right click and choose Create Outlines.
Click Window and scroll down for Pathfinder. Click it.
A window will pop up. Click the divide button. This will allow you to select different parts of the letters.
Click the Direct Selection Tool. This arrow allows you to pick out sections of the letters that the black Selection Tool arrow doesn’t allow.
Now select the overlapping shape. Click on the Eyedropper tool and select a color that the two colors combined will look like.
Now the two letters overlapped look like transparencies!
