Hi all! I've been trying to recreate the gradients inside the two coloured shapes in this logo. I've tried using gradients, hand drawing them with brushes, inner glow and a whole bunch of other stuff. I must be doing something wrong.

Any advice out there?

You have at least 4 options in Illustrator to use/combine:

  1. Mesh Tool
  2. Gradient Tool
  3. Drop shadow effect
  4. Blend Tool

Here is 5 minutes example of Mesh+Drop Shadow tool:

  • @Scott I wrote Blend twice (formatting error). I used mesh actually in the example :)
