About This Class

Icons and icon packs or sets are something that most designers are going to have to make at some point in their career. The icons in this image were created using the same techniques taught in the class.

In this class I will walk you step by step through the process I used to create a PokeBall icon using Adobe Illustrator. As you can see from the image above though these same techniques can be applied for created a variety of different icons. We'll cover just a few tools in Adobe Illustrator CC including:

  • shape builder
  • align 
  • live paint bucket 
  • ...and more

This class, although intended for novice users, is great for anyone looking to learn new methods and techniques for creating icons and other graphics in Adobe Illustrator as the skills you'll learn can be applied to may other designs.
