ASSIGNMENT

To make the most of this course your task is to work on a Logo made up entirely of circles and ellipses. Follow these steps to complete the project:

  1. Download the provided exercise files
  2. Practice Shape Builder techniques with 'combining shapes_exercise.ai' file
  3. Based on this exercise design your own Logo with the Ellipse Tool and the Shape Builder Tool
    • It can be an abstract symbol
    • It can be a simplified animal, object or character
    • You can also add type next to your design to establish the name of the brand for which you created the logo

DELIVERABLE

When you are ready with your mockup you should do the following few things:

  • Export your final version as a JPG (File menu > Export > Quick Export As JPG) and Upload it to Your Project.
  • (OPTIONAL) If you have the time feel free to write down your workflow and the challenges you had during the class project.

Good luck and have fun with Illustrator! :)
