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.
So far we have covered all the initial analog methods needed to become a proficient illustrative designer. Before we jump into digital and go over all the various vector build methods and the tools, we need to do a few things first. In this chapter we'll go over several custom workflow enhancements and functions that will improve your overall creative process and help you build your vector art faster. We'll be covering using Keyboard shortcuts and recording actions, using Custom scripts in Illustrator, Custom color palettes and graphic styles, Toggling your smart guides on and off as you build, and the importance of using Layers.
Once you have integrated these simple enhancements into your daily design routine, they will eventually become second nature in your creative workflow.
