The ribbons making up part of the FEI 2009 European Dressage Championships logo were created using Abobe Illustrator with vector paths, shadows, highlights, vignettes and other effects.
The graphic is made up of 2 ribbons, flowing to form the head of a horse and in traditional British colouring.
You can see the vector work in the wireframe view from the slideshow below. There are rendered & wireframe views of both the flat & 3D logos along with a zoomed preview to show a little more detail. You can clearly see from the wireframes that a gradient mesh has been used to generate the 3D highlight & shadow effects throughout the ribbon.
This portfolio item is to showcase vector logo creation & not design.
