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!

Then subtract it from the circle with the Pathfinder
