So, I was working on this logo yesterday and, when I dragged it from one side of the artboard to the other I was struck by the coolness of the process. You see, when you draw a vector-based piece of art you are really building a geometric model that treats colors and transparency as values. The end result is that you can build complicated, detailed, shaded, translucent illustrations with an economy of information.

The absolutely brilliant simplicity of these documents is truly only experienced when you look at the information side by side with the end result.

Cool, right?

Also - This is why I am awesome and can make 3D Logos with shading, alpha transparency and shading that work at .25" and 25'.
