    For the rounded effect in type and in the traces use rounded corner filter with low values.
    For the vintage effect you will need a texture of it (you can easily find something in google images or make it with noise in photoshop), place it into illustrator, live trace on it and than clipping mask on the art work.

    lets see...

    1. start by creating a line same length as the longest in the middle
    2. apply stroke (rounded)
    3. duplicate and rotate 180 degrees
    4. create another line same length as the 2nd longest line. stroke.
    5. rotate (just figure out what the degree is)
    6. duplicate. rotate. until you get everything
    7. create another line same length as the shortest . repeat.
    8. for the grunge effect, just put a grungy vector layer on top and maybe use the pathfinder.

    Pen tool, stroke, rotation and direct selection tool. Not hard to do it, just be patient and fix de lines with these tools around your text.

    Try a pattern brush around a vector circle. Youtube is a great place to watch quick videos on how to do that kind of stuff.

    if you google sunburst effect there are plenty of tutorials out there! http://www.chadammidown.com/articles/6-how-to-create-a-sunburst-effect-in-illustrator this one for instance is helpful then you just tailor it to create something more like your example and use the brush above (thanks for that btw) to get the textured look.

    Was inspired by this thread to put it on a emblem I'm designing.

    1) I followed http://www.chadammidown.com/articles/6-how-to-create-a-sunburst-effect-in-illustrator posted by mjashley to create the lines.
    2) I then copied it 3 times in 3 different sizes to create the different line lengths.
    3) I set it in line view mode (dont know the technical term, cmd+y) and on a new layer used the pen tool to create my lines. I used the lines i made using the tutorial as a base (separate layer on the bottom, locked, hiding/showing as I needed).
    4) Voila!

    Surely there is an easier way out there but this way will work to.

    For the text....

    Any of the tutorials on how to create a sunburst in Illustrator will point you in the right direction. One other thing, is for the text that is over the sunburst, if you want that white space around it, you can create a white stroke around the text and set it to something relatively thick. You'll notice the stroke also overlaps the text itself (which looks ugly), to fix this, go over to the Appearance panel, and drag the fill style over top of the stroke style, so the stroke goes behind the text.

    Good tip. Another way to get around this would be to convert the text to outlines and set the stroke to outside.
