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.
