So in this video, we are going to recreate this design as usual. Let's break this. I come down First of all, right off the bat, you can see that the design is really simple, right? And I mean, most of it is just circles and some rectangles, but that's flat design. I guess you could call it on sophisticated simplicity, and it's actually simplicity well, And the composition, of course. What makes it look nice? So let's cut to the chase and start designing already. As usual, let's make some room here. I'll clone the art board, of course, without its contents, and I'll go ahead and create a separate layer for their design, and I'll call it Tom logo. Maybe, but of course, feel free to give it some more original name. Okay, um, I will look the original layer just so I don't mess it up. Okay, let's start with what seems to be the most challenging task here. And that is that sushi pits, We could create separate ellipsis, give them collars and appropriate size. But I want to make you better designer guys, so I will show you a better way. We'll start with a humble lips, and when we take a closer look at the original, we can see that the bottom parts are but, um flat. But please don't even start a thing that we need to use the Pan Tal to achieve this kind of effect, and we will just use their direct selection tool on. We will use it to click the bottom anchor point and just to Nagy it a bit up, just like so. Okay, so far, so good. Uh, now let's give it a proper fill color and make sure that there is no stroke. And now let's head over to the appearance panel. And if you don't have it up, just go to the window appearance menu or just use the shift plus F six stroke short. Okay, we want to do here. Used to clothe, feel like so s. So I will just drag it over to the new Philae. Come and now I will change the color of the top filled I'll make it, Make it rice white. And it looks like we messed everything up, right? What we kind of did. Now we have to Phyllis, identical in size, but with different film so we can see the bottom field. My goal here is to make the top one smaller, so it looks like a rice stuffing. And to do that, all I need to do is to select it and go to this little F X. I will choose, distort and transform and transform. And, uh, I would make it a bit smaller. And you can play around these values to get the effect you're after. Okay, Now, let's repeat the whole process with the white Phil. So a clone it like so and noticed that not only the Phil was cloned, but also its attributes, which is a changed size in this case. So I will make it to Sam Money orange. Now I will reduce its size quite significantly. And there we go. We got a nice salmon stopping ready. Now, if you want to go for was ah, be bit. It's totally up to you. You can leave it as is, But for educational purposes, I will go for was on, by the way, I got a funny story about me eating wasabi one day without even knowing what it waas. So if your interests that just let me know and I'll tell you all about it. Okay, So for was Abby, let's repeat the process once more. I'll call the salmon. My kingdom was up green, and I will make it considerably smaller. You don't want too much. Was that me? Trust me and I will move it to the left. And for that, I will just the horizontal movement slide. Like so. And there we go. We did all this with just one simple ellipse. Remember? Now, what was the whole purpose of it? Well, when we go to the outline mode, we can see that we got just one shape. And that is great in terms of producing the file size, achieving results faster and with less clicks. So all that's left to do is to clone the guy to the right twice 3. Flat Design Sushi pt2: Okay, so now let's do the soccer bowl, van table and the chopsticks, but we four would do all that. Let's create background first just so we can have some sense of proportions. Okay, that's easy. I'll just create an ellipse. I'll make it yellow or any color you like. You can. You can make it any color you like, really, And I will send it all the way to the back, and I want to lock it. No, what's create the soccer bowl again? I'll just create in the lips and with the direct selection tool, I will select the top anchor point and simply deleted. I would just hit do it or the backspace key. Now I need to join it. Andi, Quickest way to do that is to simply hit the control J or Commander J. If you're on a Mac on the keyboard and I will make sure it's got the right color, and now we'll just create the base for it and it will be a simple rectangle. Now I will align these guys properly, and I think I will unite them in the Pathfinder to okay, I'll do some cleaning up, and I will start creating the table, and for that I will grab the rectangle tool and create the base off the table. I will give it a table collar and novel. Kriegel Ags, just like so I want to group them and I want a group that group them because I want to align them with the base of the table. And there we go. It wasn't at all easy, but don't unbutton your pants in aspects of duty well done. We still got the chopsticks to do, and it will be a bit trickier. So we're pay attention off course. We need to start with a simple rectangle that will be wider than Toller. Now let's make one and of the sticker a bit narrower. And for that I'll select these to anchor points. Of course, I will do that with the direct selection toe. I will hit the ask E for the scale tool and enter or return if you are on a map, because I want to make the skeletal active now in the scale tool. By decreasing the uniform value, we can bring the anchor points closer together. Course you can experiment with these values as much as you like. Just remember that the smaller the value of the closer, the anchor points will be okay. Um, and now the tricky report, What's left to do is thes ornaments right here. We could just create rectangles and forget about it. But I always want to be precise. And as you can see, the right most rectangle, um, is clearly smaller than the 1st 1 So we could play around with the corners and try to make it old organize. But that's too much trouble to my taste. I want to do it quickly and not worry about the size. So again, I'll just create rectangles with proper collars. I will position them appropriately, and what I want to do now is I want to copy the chopstick into my clippers, so I will just go ahead and use the combination of control or commanding for a non AC plus C and I will. I will pace toe my chopstick on in front off the rectangles. Now what I want to do is I want to select the chopstick and the rectangles, and now I want to go to the object menu clipping, mask, make, and just like that, I got the chops he created, and it's looking quite nice. Now. I will group these guys and I'll make sure that rotate tool is active by pressing the R key on the keyboard, and I will just press enter or returning for Mac to rotate the chopstick a little bit again . This is optional. And if you don't want to do it, you, of course, don't have to. Now, still, with the rotate toe active, I will click somewhere to the left and holding down the altar or option. Chiana Mac. I will rotate and duplicate at the same time. My chopstick. I can reposition it a little bit and there we go. Wake up the icon. Ready? Sure, we could polish it a little bit. Maybe play with the colors, but I will leave it as always for you to experiment. So I hope you had fun. I hope you learned a thing or two. Tell me what you think about this design in the discussion board and see you next time
