I'm using Adobe Illustrator CS5 on a Mac, and I need to make the SK in the circle-shape transparent. I should be able to see the background behind the logo - through the SK. I bet it's super simple, but I haven't been able to find anything on Google, since I didn't know what to search for. Thanks in advance!

First, change the text to outline with Type -> Create Outlines

Then subtract it from the circle with the Pathfinder

I knew it would be very simple. However; pointing out that text-elements needs to be outlined, would improve your answer a lot. Type -> Create Outlines – Frederick Andersen Feb 5 '14 at 13:15
Good Idea, I'll add it. – KMSTR Feb 5 '14 at 13:18
