Adobe Illustrator is a part of my Digital design Course, I learn many techniques in this course. I will be talking about One of my work in Illustrator.
What is it?
Adobe Illustrator is a Software that is Created by Adobe Incorporation. And it is a Vector graphic editor. It Is Used mainly for creating Logos, cartoons, posters and graphics. It is mostly used by graphic designers.
Illustrator provides many tools that are placed on the tool palette on the left side of screen which are used for create, select and change the artwork. The user can use these tools for selecting, Painting, Reshaping and Cutting as well. For example: Selection & Direct Selection Tool, Basic shapes tool, Pen tool, Mesh tool, Magic wand tool, paint brush & bucket tool, eyedropper tool and Gradient tool.
The user can import any photo which they wants to redesign and then they can trace that image by using the pen tool or also with the help of other tools. Illustrator is easy to use on Mac or Personal Computers (Windows).
Illustrator allows to the user to manipulate the text in several ways. User can resize the design or logo without losing the quality of the artwork. In illustrator user can save their files in PDF, AI , SVG and XML or export the file into Jpeg, PNG, GIF and others.User can import and edit any kind of file into illustrator.
My work and Experience
I created Titanic Poster with the use of Illustrator. It is based on Typography.In which I used the number of grids, modular grids and rule of thirds and golden ratio to make sure the balance of the poster.
The Colors that used in poster for describing the love and disaster such as red for love and black for disaster and I used gray color for contrast.
Firstly, I converted the text into Outlines then made it bigger. For example 1997 for making my layout attractive. As well as I used different type of font sizes and some layers (long shapes such as I, T and N) for drawing the attention of the reader to read next.
Moreover, I used some black shapes , which created the balance and composition between font and style.I used the Pen Tool and Direct Selection Tool for making shapes as well as to reshape of text by making it outlines.
Illustrator is the easiest software that is used by designers. I enjoyed working on illustrator a lot.
