Learn how easy it is to create your own custom cohesive icon set in Adobe Illustrator. We’ll show you good examples of icon sets and discuss how the design choices create the brand’s tone or mood. You’ll then take those concepts and apply them to creating your own icon set using various tools and panels in Illustrator, including the Pathfinder panel, shape and line tool, Align panel, and more.
Drawing tools like the pencil and pen tool can seem daunting to use. We’ll show you how you can use the power of the pen tool to trace or adjust objects and make them into vectors that can be customized. Throughout the course, we’ll practice drawing and let you have some fun with making your own objects.
Even if you aren’t a rockstar graphic designer, you can still create a basic logo for yourself that tells your story and represents you. We’ll show you how to play with type to make a logo out of your initials or name that stands out. Using Adobe Illustrator, we’ll cover basics of typography and how to manipulate type.
Infographics are useful for a variety of situations – comparing complex sets of data, showing a timeline of events, or sharing compelling content. We’ll do some brainstorming on creating themes for infographics, and you’ll learn tips for creating them in a variety of applications.
In this workshop, we'll go beyond the basics and show you how to work with masks, typography, and images. We'll strengthen your production and illustration skills by working on real-world projects.
