Basically, I'm confused between geometric/mathematics and aesthetic point of view. I need a shape as shown in image for my logo. Now, in the 2nd half of image, you see two objects. One has inner radius and other has none.
I made the first by the process illustrated in first half of following image:
a) Drew a circle with side length 120 px
b) Increased the stroke width to 60 px and made it contain inside of path
c) Gave border radius of 60 px
c) Distorted the one end of shape to see the stroke properly and finally expanded it and removed unwanted part
Now, it seems right to me according to Illustrator's own handling but it doesn't look cool to me at least. So I was thinking to give it inner radius manually.
One way to achieve both inner and outer radius was to give stroke width less than 60 px, but that I don't want. I need exactly half.
Is the little manual radius (inside curvature) here in the 2nd shape makes it more weird or makes it better? In other words, which of the 2 will most designers prefer over other?
