Professional Graphic Design Layout Bootcamp - Episode 5

Lesson Plan Published 11/3/13 Last updated on 5/16/18

Welcome to episode 5 of Layout Design Bootcamp where my goal is to take you through entire design layouts to show you the exact process of how it's done. In this fifth episode, I continued to implement the brand of "Eight Energy" that I developed in Logo Design Bootcamp Episode number 5. I decided to design an infographic about energy drinks while comparing and showing statistics of the competition. (note, these are my imaginary findings) This tutorial will teach you so many things including:
• Sizing your infographic layout
• Finding free vector logos
• All aspects of the pen tool
• The type tool
• Tracking and leading effects
• Using guides for accuracy
• Repetitive textures
• Making fluid gradients
• Break the rules of design
• Transparency options
• Create a pie chart
• Understanding copying & aligning
and more.......
The goal here is to help you understand all the different ways that things can be designed. To help yourself and every other artist out there, I want everyone who is recreating this layout, to make a version of your own. You can choose your own size and type of layout (web or print) and make it your own. I then want you to email it to me at or tag it on my Facebook page. I will then be making videos with your submitted artwork showing viewers all the ways that the same idea can be done.
