In this Photoshop and Illustrator tutorial, we will produce custom patterns, stylish vector shapes, and blend photos together to create a cohesive work of art that will leave you spaced out! I’ll also show you the power of the Gradient Tool for creating great light effects. As a side note, we will only be using Illustrator briefly to import some vector objects into Photoshop.
In this Adobe Illustrator tutorial, I will walk you through my process of creating an illustrated type artwork. The focus of this tutorial is to demonstrate how it is possible to draft, develop, and refine a whole piece all within a design program like Adobe Illustrator from start to finish. I will show you that working with the tools available in Illustrator allow you to work in an organic way that enables you to realize and problem-solve an entire design. No more pencil on paper or sketching!
This font assemblege is comprised of sans serif fonts with tall arms and wide stems, giving them a strong and striking appearance. They are fitting in situations where the designer wants to convey modernity and make a bold impact, such as in headlines and displays that crave attention.
The work you do as a creative is for (and judged by) other people. No matter how much time, effort, blood, sweat, and tears you put into a design, it’s unlikely that you’ll get it wholly perfect in the eyes of the head honcho. From small tweaks in color schemes to flat out rejections and having to start over, top design professionals recount their experiences in revising and polishing their designs for their clients.
Learn the process of making a tribal-style illustration using only some fundamental techniques in Adobe Illustrator. This is more of a process overview than a play-by-play tutorial and thus, some basic skills in the program are needed in order to follow along. The main goal here is to show a workflow process, and from there, it’s up to you to add your own style and aesthetical preferences to your piece. I encourage you to let loose and experiment while doing this project!
In this graphic design tutorial, we will combine Photoshop, Cinema 4D, and Illustrator to produce a composition that includes elements such as 3D text, 3D light bulbs (which we will create from scratch using only a reference photo), and florid ornaments. My concept for this scene started from a simple thought: “ideas are all around us.” We are constantly surrounded by ideas wherever we are and everywhere we go — we just have to find them and make the best ones happen.
