Introduction to Adobe Illustrator, the fundamentals of Digital Graphics and their use in Advertising.
This my first attempt towards the understanding of the foundations of Graphics and their influence on Advertising. This was the first time I have used Illustrator so overcoming the intimidation were also a factor for this task. The task was to implement what we know about the specific terms in graphic design along with being used in Digital Advertising, and using basic shapes, we created art boards with our interpretations of the terms and how they could be presented through a simple visuals.
Taking our name in a chosen typeface (in this case it was Futura in Medium) and create a simple illustration and effectively, just experimenting with type and discovering the capabilities of illustrator was quite enjoyable to me. I no longer feel intimated by Illustrator and look forward to using in the future. I am pleased with these small outcomes especially; my name outcome.
