About This Class

In this class we will be looking at how to put a flat design on a cube. In Illustrator this is called “mapping” to a 3D object.

You make a cube using the Extrude 3D Effect, then MAP--meaning APPLY--your flat square design to it’s three visible faces, and then recolor or add shading. What starts out as a not very exciting flat design can become something great on a cube.

But it takes a dinosaur to fully appreciate the newfangled wonders of Adobe Illustrator and the iMac. At first I resisted evolution, but after I got a whiff of it ...
