Hello I have a logo and I want turn the logo into a stroke only in illustrator. I cant belive I cant remember how to do this so frustrating. I looked on youtube and im not getting a clear answer on how to do this. All i want is outline stroke only of a logo.

The logo is vector and I already added in the white stroke.

Screenshot below I want remove the orange and have the white stroke only.

  • Is this logo a raster image or vector?

  • Select all (Select > All)
  • Set the fill to none in the Color Panel (Window > Color)
  • Set the stroke to a color in the Color Panel
  • Set the stroke weight in the Stroke Panel (Window > Stroke)

enter image description here

You can also do all this via the Appearance Panel (Window > Appearance).

Merely click the colors or the stroke weight in that panel..

  • I thought the logo is expanded.

  • @Vikas Read the comment under the question.. the stroke was added by the user. I seriously doubt it's been expanded. Especially since how to remove the fill seems to be the hurdle.

If the whole logo is expanded (Object > Expand) and if each shape is independent (I mean if the white shapes are already cropped and there's no white shapes behind orange shapes), you can just use Direct Selection tool and select them each and delete it.

You can also use Shape Builder tool for this (again it works if whole logo is expanded):

Just press and hold Alt while you click on orange shapes to remove them.

Note: To expand the logo, select all the artwork, go to Object > Expand and press OK.
