About This Class

Astute Graphics plugins are one of the best ways to improve the quality and speed of your workflow in Adobe Illustrator. In this course, I will be teaching you about Stylism.

Adobe Illustrator has some built in transformation and blur effects built into it but they aren't very accessible and Stylism helps mitigate that problem. Stylism creates a widged over the object you want to style and you can quickly adjust the style settings on the fly, rather than have to guess with numbers and a dialogue box.

Included in this plugin are widgets to blur shapes, add inner and outer glows, create transformation effects and cloning of objects, feathering, drop shadows and offset path live effects. The best part is everything works non-destructively which means I can easily go back to the original shapes after I've applied effects, if I don't like the outcome.
