Drawing with Shapes
Replicate the objects using the shape tools in the provided document.
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.
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.
Once you’re done, simply save and close the document.
Create artboards for the following items.
Name each artboard, Logo Alone, Business Card, Post Card, Web Page Mockup & All Encompassign. Done? Save & close.
Assign colours to the provided logo adhering to the guide images.
Make sure to save your document where it is. Don’t rename.
