    Need a hand with vector graphics

    Hello all,

    I need some advice relating to creating vector (SVG) graphics.

    I am attempting to recreate my old PSD image in vector format. As you can see in the sample attachment this is really simple, some text with some basic bordering and a really simple effect on the C.

    In both Inkscape and a 30 day trial of Adobe Illustrator I have successfully created the text I need and bordered it in the way I need. However I cannot work out how to split the "C" into the the different colours you can see in attachment.

    Via small words and big pictures can anybody help me with this?

    I'd make it of three shapes and the black outline would be the fourth shape. This way you could apply different colors to all three parts.

    One way to do it is to use Illustrator's Knife tool. After you have the basic C with a fill and stroke color, drag the knife where you want to "cut" the shape. After the cut, select each shape using the white arrow (Direct selecting tool) and change the fill color.

    The three steps looks something like this.

    Thanks a lot for the information.

    Using a combination of the knife and eraser tools solved the problem
