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.
It said that practice makes perfect. I disagree. If your creative process is flawed then all practice does is make you a consistent purveyor of marginal work. Creating illustrative design successfully requires a consistent and systematic creative process. In this course, I'll cover four fundamental stages. The first stage is Creative Preparation, and it covers what a designer needs to do before they start designing in order to create appropriate and effective solutions.
The second stage is Drawing Your Design and I'll cover the importance of drawing out your design ideas and refining them before you move to digital. The third stage is Building Your Vector Shapes, and it will show you how to take your drawn design and create it with precision in Vector form through simple build methods in Adobe Illustrator. The fourth stage is Presenting Your Design Solutions and it will cover how you present your ideas to your client and how to manage design revisions.
As we move forward in this course, you'll see how the systematic process will not only improve your illustrative design skills; it will also enhance your conceptual abilities as well. It's my hope that with practice, you'll become a consistent purveyor of well-crafted design ideas.
