Project Description

f487fe57

By taking this course, you'll learn 5 Essentials in Adobe Illustrator. Use these skills to create your own letterform, whether that's an uppercase/lowercase letter, a number, or a symbol. If you're feeling super courageous, I would love to see a custom ampersand design!

Deliverables

  1. Final design uploaded to the class
  2. One or more new techniques you learned in this course

Resources

If you need more of a walkthrough to creating letters, watch the final video in this course. I show you how you can utilize all the essential skills to create custom letters of your own.
