This gallery exhibits student work featuring the Adobe Illustrator software and utilizing vector graphics. This section of instruction begins with simple assignments, such as a graphic self-portrait or a business card logo to learn the basic tools then progresses into artist promotionals such as posters or flyers. The capstone assignment for this section is typically a multi-piece collaborative design where the students work in groups. This often allows the individuals to play to their various strengths and offers students a chance to create a more complex portfolio of imagery that covers both virtual and print media designs.
I find many students are passionate about music so I often assign design projects that reflect their own musical interests. It’s amazing how the abstraction of sound lends itself to interesting and more conceptual design imagery.
