I have a logo that I am vectorizing from a raster original. Two of the components are flags - one is the US and the other is the State of Florida. In the original, the two flags are flying/draped from flagpoles on either side of a central image.

I have the vector files for both flags, but I can't seem to find any information on how to distort/shear the images properly to recreate the original logo. For your reference, here is the original file with the center image blurred (don't want to get in trouble with the client).


Scott Logo w/ Flags

  • A convoluted way would be to apply it as a material to a plane in a 3D program like Blender. And export the resulting render

I think that the best option will be Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Mesh.

Select desired number of rows and columns (with your example I would go with 10x10).


Manually position it as you want and go to Object > Envelope Distort > Envelope Options to change Fidelity.
