A lot of sports logos use this effect, where shapes are outlined twice by different colors:
- Black outline, orange outline
- White outline, blue outline
- Blue outline, white outline
But when I try to outline a shape in illustrator, it encroaches on that shape:
(See top image in screenshot)
What I've been doing is copying the shape, changing the color of the copy, and placing it behind the original. Then I try and and measure out both sides to make sure that there is even space and good symmetry when I resize the copy:
Is there a faster / more efficient way of doing this? Is there a way to outline the shape without the outline entering the shape and cutting off the color? Thank you.
