Constant outline for text and double outline

Recommended Posts

1 I'm trying to recreate the image below on a vector. I've done so by drawing pen shapes for the "inside" letters and giving them an outline. Problem is if I resize the object the outline does not maintain the ratio.

I do have a working version were I use the pen tool to draw the outline, but it's not as precisse as the outline option out of human error when tracing the shapes. So I'd like to know if there's a more correct way to go about it.

2 The other thing I'm wondering is how to do the image below on Affinity Designer. I can kind of get it to work with having both a stroke and an outline effect, but I need the inner part to be transparent, and if I set the stroke as 0% opacity then the outline doesn't render.

Try setting the "scale with object" checkbox ...

With regard to the stroke on the arcade image, I would apply the stroke size you want to be transparent and use that as a guide and just draw the stroke with the pen tool, you can the turn off the stroke.

 

Create the stroke that will be the distance of the "floating" stroke and use the pen tool to rough out the floating stroke
