Project Description

How To Use The Shape Builder Tool Class Project

For the class project I would like you to put the Shape builder tool in motion.

I want you to try to come up with more complex shapes that can be created from simpler shapes.

If you need some inspiration, I got some examples here for you.

  1. The first one is the lab flask we saw in the class
  2. The second one is aflat design cheese that needs its holes to be cut out
  3. And lastly we got some more complex shapes that can be turned into a Taj Mahal tower with some merging, but also some deleting

Thank you for watching this class. I hope you found it useful and that you will give the shape Builder Tool a try.

If you liked the class please give it a thumbs up and submit your class project which both help tremendously in reaching more students, just like you.

I hope to see you in the next class in the series.

Have a nice design,
Dawid
