Join illustrative designer Von Glitschka as he deconstructs the creative process to teach you how to develop and create precise vector graphics. The course begins with an overview of his methodology for design and drawing—analog methods that are vital to digital workflows. Next, discover how to prepare yourself and your client for the project by defining the scope and expectations early on. With the creative brief ready and ideation explored, Von jumps into sketching, refining, and creating vector graphics through simple build methods. He continues to art direct the work and conducts digital and physical presentations of the final designs. The last chapter includes some workflow enhancements designed to save you time and conserve your creative energy for future projects.
At this stage of the process, you're now moving from analog to digital. And you'll begin to build your design in vector format within Illustrator. Remember, anyone can learn the tools. My goal isn't to show you specifically how to use the tools but how to look at any drawn design and discern where and how to place your anchor points. This will help you take your drawing and build it out precisely. In this chapter, we'll be covering: your Drawing is your road map, the Clockwork method, Prime point placement, the Point by point method, the Shape building method, using Symmetry in your design, and Art directing yourself. Let's face it.
The whole point you're taking this course is to improve your abilities. Once these methods become a regular part of your design routine, you should see growth in the craftsmanship and the quality of your work.
