While working on a logo for a client I came across an odd behaviour that I can't find a reason for.
The logo I was working on is a 1 colour logo, so to make it easier to swap the colours from their Pantone to black and negative versions for their brand guidelines, I created a compound path of the outlined numbers and the solid below. It looks fine at 100%, but when scaled, the type appears more plugged in than if I left the type as a white filled object.
I would like to know if there is a work-around for this that would allow the logo file to be 1 colour. Should I just leave the type as a white filled object on top of the solid? Or offset the path before creating the compound path to compensate?
I've created an example image (no this is not the actual logo) to better show the issue:
