Join William Everhart for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing artwork, part of Illustrator: Package Design.
…After you have your initial design in place,…you need to present it to your client.…There may be multiple phases to this process,…from initial concepts to a working package prototype.…In this chapter, I will demonstrate how to…prepare your artwork for these various types of presentations.…So I'm going to take a moment just to reiterate something that…we covered in Chapter four, and that is the use of symbols.…So, if you recall that chapter, symbols make our life a…lot easier when it comes to package design because we can…re-purpose the artwork, And so, I want to continue that and…maybe refresh your memory on that in just a bit here.…
The first panel that I have here on the left is my revive information.…And what I have done with this is, the revive information itself is…a symbol, and then the photograph…here, this photograph extends across both panels.…But what I have done is taken that photograph, duplicated it and then…cropped one for the first panel, and then one for the second panel.…So let me undo that, move it back into position.…
