Skillshare - Type Design: Introduction to Effects in Illustrator | 306MB
Illustrator type effects help logo designers achieve dynamic typographic treatments through a variety of simple steps. These treatments can stand as logotypes on their own or as type that fits around an illustration or mark to make a complete logo. The tools I teach in this class will give designers an array of techniques that will help them style type in ways that are often used when designing logos. While I believe designers of all levels will pick up some helpful tips these concepts will especially be helpful for people who would consider themselves unfamiliar with Illustrator or type in general.
