SAMPLE PROJECT

Hello You! :D

When you'll open the poster exercise file, you'll start with something like this:

The first thing you'll want to do is duplicate the original layer (so you can keep it safe in case you need to start again), and then align all elements to the center of your artboard.

Then open the illustrator icons file and copy/paste some of the icon on your poster file. 

Use the tools you've learnt to place them however you want around the text (creating a sort of faux-patterned frame.)

Decide whether you want to keep the icons enclosed in a box or not. 

You can also use the transforming tools to make the icons look tossed.

Almost there...

Use the shape builder tool and the pathfinder panel to modify the text.

And finally...

Put some color to make it yours!

Now you can print it out and put it in a visible place so that whenever you are feeling frustrated with Illustrator, it reminds you to take a breath, keep calm, and keep trying. Ai is all about practice. The more you use it, the better you'll get at it, and the more you'll love it ;)

ENJOY!
