I have been trying to create a logo design, and I've come across an issue that seems very simple but has so far been very puzzling.
Basically the logo that I am designing has intersecting squares; where every second square is 100% opaque and the rest are 65% opaque. My issue is that I want the borders of each square to intersect the square after it in such way that the intersection becomes 100% transparent.
Sorry if that sounds confusing, I couldn't find a better way to describe it. The screenshot should give a better idea of what I am trying to do.
This screenshot shows what I ultimately want to achieve, however for that screenshot I 'faked' the intersection transparency by having 2 objects for each square; 1 object with only stroke without fill and another with only the fill and no stroke.
That solution works if I have a pre-set background color but it would not work for a logo as it needs to have a transparent background.
This second screenshot shows what it looks like with a transparent background
How could I solve this?
Thanks in advance
