How To Create SVG Images In Adobe Illustrator

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

The beauty of vectors is the fact they are “Device Independent”. By that I mean they are not tied to pixels on the screen and can be scaled with no loss of resolution. With the ubiquity of mobile devices and the rise of “Small is good and fast!” there has been a corresponding growth of the use of SVG files . SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics and is a web format developed by the W3Cthat first appeared in 1998. I first encountered this format in 2000 when Adobe introduced its Macromedia Flash competitor – LiveMotion – at FlashForward. A common question is “How do I create an SVG image?” Essentially the vectors are converted to an XML document andthere are a number of applications such as Inkscape,GoogleDocs Drawings,Sketch3 and Adobe Illustrator. The reason I am using Illustrator is simply because the apps all have similar options and tools. What are some uses for SVG? They can be used for situations such as: Graphics created in a vector drawing appli... Read More

How To Create A Long Shadow In Adobe Illustrator CC 2014

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

Long shadows are a hallmark of the trend to Flat Design on the web which is a reaction to the Skeuomorphic trend that was led by Apple. This trend was common through the use of depth, drop shadows and so on, to imitate objects. We saw it in the stitching around a calendar and the use of “wood” in a bookcase icon in the Mac OS. Flat design, which first appeared when Microsoft released its Zune player in 2006 and migrated to the Windows phone four years later, goes in the opposite direction and is characterized by a minimalist use of simple elements, typography and flat colors. Though there are those who seem to regard Flat Design as a passing trend it can’t be discounted. Especially when Microsoft builds this design standard into it’sMetro interfaceand Apple moves it into both its Mac OS and iOS devices. In this “How To” we are going to create a long shadow for a Twitter button. Let’s get started.

How To Kern In InDesign CC 2014

Posted on May 29, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 20, 2015

Nothing is more disturbing than seeing a headline or a sign that just doesn’t “read right”. The issue is always the typography. It could be poor choice of font, the colour, the size but, more often than not, the kerning of the letters is the culprit.  Whoever set the type wasn’t paying attention to the opening words of Robert Bringhurst’s masterwork, “ The Elements of Typographic Style”.  Right in the opening paragraph he states: “Typography is a craft by which the meanings of text (or its absence of meaning) can be clarified, honoured and shared or knowingly disguised”.

Package Design: Mini Cereal Box

Posted on May 14, 2015 by Fred Benitez Last Activity on Jun 20, 2015

I saw a great project by Lori Cullen on Creativity With Cereal, and I wanted to share my take on this lesson. In this project, students will create a new breakfast cereal brand, logo and build a mock packaging design. The students seemed to enjoy creating something original and seeing it to completion in the form of a mini cereal box. You could always take the project up a notch by mixing in some health education and requiring actual nutritional information based off research.  As educators, we are lucky to have a community like Adobe EdEx so we can share all of our ideas and find inspiration from others. Thanks Lori Cullen!

Cubeecraft: Paper Characters

Posted on May 14, 2015 by Fred Benitez Last Activity on Jun 20, 2015

I first used cubeecraft for downloading and printing characters from their website and to display around my teacher desk. I quickly realized just how fascinated my students were by them. I started by implementing these little guys into my classroom/print shop safety lesson. After we went over guidelines for using exacto knives and print settings, I allowed my students to print, cut and fold their cubeecrafts. Then one day, I had a student ask if he could create his own character! Lucky for us, cubeecraft had a standard template to use. This would become one of the most popular projects in my class and it teaches students on many different design levels.  Check out the website to get an idea of what they have, and try it out for yourself first. Then use the template attached to let your students design their own character!

DPS Overview, resources to the presentation

Posted on May 10, 2015 by Lukas Engqvist Last Activity on Jun 20, 2015

These resources were created for the presentation: CREATE DIGITAL PUBLICATIONS FOR MOBILE DEVICES WITH INDESIGN (6 May 2014)  Video Presentation Even though the DPS single edition is no longer available it is possible to create and upload a DPS folio to an iPad or iPhone and then interact with it using the Adobe DPS Viewer app. In the video it is explained the difference between a DPS that is tree structured (like a webpage) and the linear story of a Fixed Layout ePub. If the Articles are created and an InDesign book is used this makes it easy to structure the information so that it can be exported either as a DPS or as an EPUB (via the book flight menu). The assets are made available so that you may adapt and improve the presentation. The photographs are my own and you may use in educational setting. The video was student work, due to file size limit I did not include it so relink to any video (Adobe Premiere Clip is a perfect match for those that are new to video and want to ma... Read More
