To learn to make your own logo we can use Adobe Illustrator. Adobe Illustrator is a vector-based graphic design editor software that is widely used by well-known designers. Logo is an important symbol that is used as a profile label icon.
In the learning example here, we can try to create an Instagram logo in Adobe Illustrator. There are actually many kinds of vector-based graphics applications, such as: Corel Draw, InkSpace, Adobe Illustrator, etc. But this time the author will use Adobe.inc’s application, namely Adobe Illustrator or commonly called AI. The author here uses AI CC (Creative Cloud) 2014.
1. Create a new file, select the File menu , New , or you can also press the shortcut Ctrl + N . after that a window will appear as below

or you can also press the M key . Then set the Corner Radius size to be 0.58 cm . Setting the corner radius is very easy, just click one of the 4 circles in the box, then drag it. If you have then the result is like the image below
3. Give the gradient color to the box by pressing the Gradient Tool . icon
or press the G button . Determine the gradient color as close as possible to the color of the Instagram icon, then drag the gradient line from the top right corner of the box to the bottom left corner of the box as shown below
4. Create another box object, so it’s easy to just duplicate the box that we have created. The trick is to click the object, then press alt + move the cursor , or you can also copy and paste as usual by pressing ctrl + C then ctrl + V . Swap the second object’s fill color to stroke color by pressing shift + X , then change the color to white and set the stroke to 3pt . if it is then the result is like the image below
5. Then create a circle object, press the L key . make a circle by holding down the shift key so that the size of the circle can be precise. Place the circle in the center of the logo, by blocking all objects, then press horizontally and vertically align center on the property bar .
If so, the result is like this:
6. Make the circle object again white, this time the “stroke” color is removed, place the object exactly in the upper right corner of the first circle. If so then the result is like this
7. Now make a yellow color at the bottom of the logo. Press L to make a circle. Make 2 circles of different sizes, bright yellow for the small circle and orange for the larger circle. Then block the two objects and press horizontally and vertically align center (the method has been mentioned above), then press ctrl + G to make the two objects into one grub. Then make the object blur, press Effect > Blur > Gaussian Blur in the menubar, set the number to “ 20 ”. If you have, then the display will be like the image below
8. Now the final stage, just cut a circle with a purple square. Duplicate the purple square, stack the square with the circle that we made, don’t forget to adjust the position of the circle with the square (see Instagram logo). Block both objects, then press ctrl +7 to cut the circle according to the box shape. If so, then it looks like the image below.
