The name of the company which we have chosen for our logo is MYSTERY WORLD. So the design of the logo will be such that it relates to the name of the company.

Let’s begin with the tutorial.

Launch Adobe Illustrator and create a document of 841.89 pt X 595.276 pt with RGB color mode.
Now follow the below mentioned steps:

Step 1

Select the Ellipse Tool from the Tool Panel and draw a circle of size 245 X 245 pt. The fill color is disabled and the stroke color is black. (#000000)

After drawing the circle, go to the Stroke Panel and increase the size of the stroke from 1 pt to 7 pt.

In this step we will create a background for our text and will also change the color of our text.
Select the outer stroke and create an Offset Path of -10 pt. (As done in Step 1 and 2 to create an inner circle.)

After creating the black inner circle double click on the text to isolate the layer and then change the font color to white.

Step 5

The words are giving an effect as they are under magnifying glass. So we will give our logo a shape of magnifying class.

Select the Rectangle Tool and draw two rectangles, one of a small size and other will be larger as compared to the first.

With the help of Type on a Path Tool, type a tagline above the logo and year of establishing below the shape. If you want you can add effect to your logo. I have applied the Film Grain Effect on the inner circle.
