EURO 2008 Logo design

Hallo and welcome in making of the EURO 2008 Logo design. I thought it will a great idea to create this tutorial during the EURO Championship. So I hope I will be a nice one.


Start with creating a new Document and of course a new layer. I Will se the original logo for the reference and ever use the logo itself to do some pars of the logo.

Select pen tool and use the original logo to put curves on the red curve that we see in the logo. Note the path settings.

So here is our path here. We can turn the logo OFF now and drag the path to our document.

Now fix this path, make it a little bit wave like. We got to stroke the path now. Choose the brush first. I recommend you to set the brush with the exact options and size I did.

This logo isn’t exactly like on the original image, needs some additional manipulations. Transform some parts and do paint/erase or make it more curve like.

Stage 2 – Highlights:


First i will make a round selection.

 Then using the lasso tool and holding shift I will add another selection.

Create a new layer and overlay this selection (on a new layer) with this very gradient.

Use mask if you like to blend the lower edge.

We will continue to make EURO 2008 logo, the ball of the logo.



So we’ve made a curve of the logo and now the final element – the ball itself.

Let’s analyze a bit the original logo of EURO championship. The logo BALL consists of 2 main shape types – type A and type B.

Let’s keep that in mind.



Now use shape tool and create a new round a little bit egg like shape.



EURO<br />

Create the spot like shapes then



EURO<br />

Round up the edges a little using eraser – you will have to rasterize the shape.



EURO<br />

Use the initial shape to copy and transform them.

Create a shape with shape tool.
