Your Assignment

Drawing with Shapes

Replicate the objects using the shape tools in the provided document.

Dawing with Shapes Summative

There may be more than one way to get to the same result. As long as you’re using shape tools, it’s fine. Once you’re done, save and close the document.

Pen Tool

Trace the provided image with the Pen Tool only. Use strokes only. Once you’re done, duplicate the illustration with strokes, then colour fill it, as shown below. The goal is to create the most accurate paths possible with the fewest anchor points.

This is much like a real-life scenario, where you would draw something by hand, then trace it in Illustrator to create scalable vector artwork.

Draw the sprinkles with the Pen Tool too.

All of your shapes need to be closed in order for them to fill with colour properly.

Once you’re done, simply save and close the document.

Type in Illustrator

Set type on the provided document using point type and area type where appropriate.

Illustrator Type Summative

All the text is set in Proxima Nova font. Make a paragraph style for each:

  • Title: 44pt, Extra Bold
  • Intro: 10pt, Bold
  • Text: 10pt, Regular

Set the slogan and URL manually:

  • URL: 24pt, Extra Bold & Regular

See the model above as a guide for where to use point type vs. area type. Make sure you use the Space After setting in your paragraph style to create spacing between paragraphs, as shown. Once complete, ⌘-S, then ⌘-W.
