At A level my predominantly used Photoshop my my graphics work. I’d never used Illustrator until this past Friday and although they appeared deceptively similar at first, I’m excited to do more on Illustrator as it offers huge advantages. We were given a crash course in type creation and shown the multitude of tricks to manipulate every aspect of our designs. Step by step we created four example piece and created unique typefaces.
I still feel that my greatest challenge on this course will be thinking outside the box to create truly unique pieces of work. However constructive criticism and workshops such as this have allowed me to get to grips with what it is I need to change in my process.
