Logo and Keys

To create the Blackberry logo, draw a rectangle and use steps (i) for the extreme left two points of the rectangle to give it a curvy look. Once done make copies using the shortcut (Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V to paste copies) of your curved rectangle and arrange them to look like the Blackberry logo. When done with the arrangements, select the Distort tool by using the shortcut (Q) to tilt.

Use the scale tool to reduce the size of the Blackberry logo and use the line tool and oval shape tool to draw the power off and call buttons. For the Blackberry keys, draw a rectangle and use step (i) to curve the left top point and bottom right point of the rectangle. Once done, make copies and arrange them.
Stage 4 Numbering and Coloring
Number the keys using the text tool to give your phone the BlackBerry look


Give Rectangle 1 a dark chrome 010 effect from the style menu, give rectangle 2 a dark chrome 004 effect with line color #444444 to show its edges, give the keys a dark chrome 004 effect with line color #222222, give rectangle 3 a solid fill color #AAAAAA with line color #444444 make a copy with a fill solid fill color of #999966 and opacity set to 37. To give the screen a glassy effect, copy and paste rectangle two and reduce opacity to 15.
