In this video, I describe how the exercise files supplied for this course, UX Design Tools: Illustrator, are organized and the best way to make use of them. As you make your way through the course, you can use the supplied exercise files if you have access, or simply use your own you create.
- [Narrator] I just wanted to take a minute to talk about the Exercise Files here. If you open up the Exercise Files folder, you'll see that there are folders for each section that we've got. If you open up the old one, Intro folder, you'll see that this one was intentionally left empty. So, that's why. If you go into each one of the folders, you'll see a start file for the specific video. In each video, I will actually either tell you and/or show you which video you should have opened at that point. If you want to start in section one and you want to kind of work all the way through, you can create one file and just keep saving it.
That's what I started to do in the very beginning. But if you want to jump in to a specific video or section, you can open up one of these start files. If you don't have access to the exercise files, I'm pretty confident you'll be able to do this pretty easily. Just follow along and you'll be able to create your own content.
