I am brand new to illustrator and have created a new logo by importing and editing a template from Stock.  The Artboard is white. I have gone through all the you tube videos and discussions and none of that has pointed me in the right direction.  When I Show Transparency Board, My artboard is still white, I only see the transparency around the white artboard.  I have tried the direct selection to to remove the white like in a photo, but that's not working either.  Greatly appreciate any help or advice.  Thanks!  I'm using Illustrator CC 2017.
