Let’s jump into some student work and talk about our progress! I really appreciate the skills that we are learning together by sharing and discussing our work in progress each week. It takes practice and also vulnerability, it gets easier with time/ regular practice and also helps us build a language around our work process. Do you see a difference in contrast to the beginning of the semester? Let’s share.

Project #4 – Part 2 -(not mandatory)

Aside from the production of both a horizontal and traditional vertical poster made in illustrator, students will push the boundaries and application / usage of their portrait imagery. What is the creative potential of the image? How can you push it further?

What are the potentials of web and mobile applications in our day and age when it comes to creating styles, textures and over all visual aesthetics? We will walk through a series of demonstrations, some examples are below, along with a slew of apps to play with.

  1. Adobe Illustrator automatically opens into a default layout. How do I change preferences such as, landscape or portrait? Can this be done once a project is already in progress?

    1. Hi Jour, Yes, we have 100% control over our art boards in Illustrator. You can always resize an art board by using the “art board tool” located in main illustrator tool bar. (ill add a screen shot & video file and place it into your g-drive folder) 🙂
