About This Class

In this class I'll show you how to add a quick and easy shadow effect to your type. We will use the pathfinder tool, blend tool, and offset path are just a few of the tools we will be using.

Really simple and cool effect, I like how he explains everything.
Great class. I really enjoyed Andrew's approachable style and am looking forward to integrating the skills I learned (e.g. offset paths, glyphs) into my Illustrator workflow.
