Description

Learn to Create Beautiful Logos and Icons using Adobe Illustrator on the iPad

This is a step-by-step tutorial course in Illustrator on the iPad. In this course I take you through all the stages of creating logos and icons using Illustrator on the iPad.

This course is comprised of 10 separate standalone projects where I show you the techniques for creating stunning logos and graphics in Illustrator on the iPad. Whilst I will take you through every stage of the process, it might be helpful for you to do my Illustrator on the iPad (Zero to Hero) course first before starting these, however it is not essential.

I will be using a wide range of tools from brushes, pens, pencils through to basic shapes as well as the Type tool. For coloring up we will use flat color and gradients with transparency so you get used to using a full range of tools. For some of the projects you will need to work with great accuracy and others will be more free. We will also be spending a lot of time in Layers, Properties, Alignments, Combined Shapes and Repeat panels, Swatches and Gradients.

All the projects rely on different techniques, so the Illustrator side is not just repeating the same thing each time.

Whether you want to get paid for your Illustrator skills, or you’re doing this for fun / self-improvement, this course and the projects will help you build confidence to be able to translate into your own work.

All the content can be adapted for both print or web.

During the videos there will also be key phrases that appear to help you remember tools, shortcuts and techniques.

At the end of this course you will have created 10 different types of logos and graphics, all of them using slightly different techniques. You will then be able to adapt these techniques for your own artwork.
