teach me to design<font color="#E5E5E5"> calm</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> in today's</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> video</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">we're going to be kicking off an</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> all-new</font> video series where I walk<font color="#CCCCCC"> you guys</font> through<font color="#E5E5E5"> Adobe Illustrator basics now</font> some<font color="#CCCCCC"> of you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> have been</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> requesting</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> this in</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">recent</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> weeks and wanting to learn more</font>

about<font color="#E5E5E5"> illustrator so really going to</font> focus on walking<font color="#E5E5E5"> you through the tools</font> the menus<font color="#E5E5E5"> and what they do so let's jump</font> right<font color="#E5E5E5"> into</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> it</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">alright guys</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> so today I'm going to be</font> starting<font color="#CCCCCC"> something new and we're going</font>

to<font color="#E5E5E5"> be basically walking through from the</font> very basics how to use Adobe Illustrator <font color="#E5E5E5">now for anybody who's been watching the</font> channel for a little while or seen any of<font color="#CCCCCC"> our videos you may know that we</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> have</font> a<font color="#E5E5E5"> Photoshop eBook</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> photoshop essential</font>

tutorials or essential Photoshop tutorials<font color="#CCCCCC"> which is a great way for you</font> to kind<font color="#E5E5E5"> of start at the beginning</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> start</font> from scratch<font color="#E5E5E5"> and learn pretty much all</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">of the basics and even some intermediate</font> techniques<font color="#E5E5E5"> in Photoshop but I don't have</font>

anything<font color="#E5E5E5"> like</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> for Adobe Illustrator</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">and I've had a couple of people</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> ask me</font> for<font color="#E5E5E5"> something that will just</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> take you</font> through<font color="#E5E5E5"> the very basics to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> help get you</font> up to<font color="#E5E5E5"> speed in the same way so I wanted</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">to do that and start to do a little</font>

video series for<font color="#E5E5E5"> you guys</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> where I'm</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">going to teach you how to use</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> this</font> program so<font color="#E5E5E5"> let's start from the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> very</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">beginning as soon</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> as</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> open Adobe</font> Illustrator<font color="#E5E5E5"> we've got some menus up here</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">but let's</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> just make a new document</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">alright now</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the first</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> thing</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you're going</font> to see<font color="#E5E5E5"> with this new document is that</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">you'll have the opportunity to name your</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">file you can call it whatever you</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> want</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> can just say you know new vector</font> file or if you're working<font color="#E5E5E5"> on a</font>

particular poster logo anything like that<font color="#CCCCCC"> even graphics for a t-shirt or what</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">have you you can throw the name in here</font> but you don't<font color="#CCCCCC"> have to name it right now</font> you can<font color="#CCCCCC"> always come back</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and name it</font> later

now just underneath that you have<font color="#CCCCCC"> this</font> profile menu which will<font color="#CCCCCC"> allow you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to</font> choose<font color="#E5E5E5"> from print web devices video and</font> film basic RGB flash<font color="#E5E5E5"> builder or you can</font> search for<font color="#E5E5E5"> something else now</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> 9 times</font> out<font color="#CCCCCC"> of</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> 10 you're probably just going to</font>

be using<font color="#CCCCCC"> either print</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> or web</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> and some</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of</font> these other features are<font color="#CCCCCC"> available but I</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">usually don't</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> use them</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> that often</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> print</font> is basically just<font color="#E5E5E5"> going to change your</font> color space to CMYK<font color="#CCCCCC"> now that's</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> just you</font> know cyan magenta yellow and black

<font color="#CCCCCC">standard colors for printing and if you</font> are<font color="#E5E5E5"> working on something such</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> as a</font> t-shirt<font color="#E5E5E5"> or a poster you will probably</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">want to work in</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> that color profile now</font> if you're<font color="#CCCCCC"> doing something that is</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">primarily going to live online</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you know</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">a graphics or a logo</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> just that's going</font> to be on<font color="#E5E5E5"> your</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> website you can probably</font> get<font color="#CCCCCC"> away with</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> just</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> using web for the</font> profile and instead<font color="#CCCCCC"> of CMYK that's just</font> going<font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> change your color mode</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to RGB</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">now you'll also see here you have the</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">resolution</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> know high medium or</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> low</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">same thing I think</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> when you have print</font> you have<font color="#CCCCCC"> the option to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> change these but</font> as far<font color="#CCCCCC"> as I can tell</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you know since</font> vector since<font color="#E5E5E5"> illustrator is a vector</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">based program</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you don't usually</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> have to</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">worry too much about</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the resolution</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> of</font> your vectors<font color="#CCCCCC"> because they're totally</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">scalable I don't</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> think that is too much</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">of a concern you don't have to worry</font> about<font color="#E5E5E5"> that setting usually</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you know the</font> nice thing<font color="#CCCCCC"> is</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> if you start off and web</font>

and create<font color="#E5E5E5"> something and you decide</font> later that<font color="#E5E5E5"> hey I might want to print</font> this<font color="#E5E5E5"> well you can always</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> convert your</font> colors from RGB<font color="#E5E5E5"> to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> CMYK or vice versa</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">you can always go from</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> print to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> web or</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">the other way around</font>

so let's keep<font color="#CCCCCC"> going here you also</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> have</font> an option<font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> create artboards now I'm</font> not sure<font color="#CCCCCC"> if you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> guys are all familiar</font> with artboards but<font color="#E5E5E5"> I use them all the</font> time <font color="#E5E5E5">when I'm working</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> into</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> Adobe</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> Illustrator</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">and you can use them now too in</font> Photoshop I think in Photoshop<font color="#E5E5E5"> CC</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">they've added this but it basically</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">gives you you</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> know multiple</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> canvases</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> or</font> workspaces<font color="#E5E5E5"> that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you can use and you can</font> choose how much space you<font color="#E5E5E5"> want between</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">them</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> orientation if you want them to</font> go by row<font color="#E5E5E5"> by column and so forth and you</font> can<font color="#CCCCCC"> also choose you know the number of</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">columns that you would want or the</font> number of rows that<font color="#E5E5E5"> you would want so</font> let's keep<font color="#CCCCCC"> going here you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> also have</font>

these sizes<font color="#CCCCCC"> that you can choose from</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">which are just kind of standard screen</font> resolution sizes<font color="#E5E5E5"> you know you've got</font> 1280 by 800 1024 by 768<font color="#CCCCCC"> and you can see</font> the others here those are<font color="#CCCCCC"> just kind of</font> standard web sizes that you<font color="#E5E5E5"> might use</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">more frequently</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> than others</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> but if you</font> have a custom size that you want<font color="#CCCCCC"> to work</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">with you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> can</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> plug that in right</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">here you've got your</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> width</font> you've got<font color="#E5E5E5"> your height and you</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> can also</font> choose<font color="#CCCCCC"> from these</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> increments here now I</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">usually use either pikas or inches or</font> pixels but you can also change<font color="#E5E5E5"> that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you</font> can also change<font color="#E5E5E5"> the orientation if you</font> want this<font color="#CCCCCC"> to be vertical or horizontal</font> and you'll notice<font color="#E5E5E5"> at</font> I do that it's changing the width and

the<font color="#CCCCCC"> height of the document because if I</font> have a taller document<font color="#E5E5E5"> you're going to</font> have more<font color="#E5E5E5"> height if it's kind of a</font> landscape<font color="#E5E5E5"> orientation</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> then you're going</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">to have more width and I generally like</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">to work more in a wide format</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> but it's</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">totally</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> up to you guys next</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you've got</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">these bleed</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> settings the top the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> bottom</font> left and<font color="#E5E5E5"> right which you can add bleed</font> to your document but<font color="#E5E5E5"> I usually only do</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">this and you know if I'm laying out</font> pages in which case I<font color="#CCCCCC"> would probably</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> use</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">InDesign instead of illustrator</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> but it's</font> nice<font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> know</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that you have the option</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">here and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> all the bleed is for those who</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">don't know</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> is just a little bit of extra</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">space</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> gets added to your document</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">in case you kind of go</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> outside the lines</font>

or if you want something<font color="#CCCCCC"> to be</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> printed</font> full bleed<font color="#CCCCCC"> all the way to the edge</font> that's<font color="#E5E5E5"> all that means</font> so I'm just going<font color="#E5E5E5"> to start off and make</font> a custom<font color="#E5E5E5"> size document here let's say</font> 1200 by 800 so<font color="#E5E5E5"> that's going to be wide</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">starting off</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> with</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> 4 artboard</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> so I'll</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">just change that to 2 so I can show you</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">guys what's going on and let's leave the</font> color<font color="#E5E5E5"> mode to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> RGB</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and hit OK now as soon</font> as<font color="#E5E5E5"> I do</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that you can see I've got</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> two</font> different<font color="#E5E5E5"> canvases these are your</font>

artboards<font color="#E5E5E5"> and you'll see up top it's got</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">the name of</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> our file along with the RGB</font> to let you know what<font color="#E5E5E5"> color mode it is</font> now as<font color="#E5E5E5"> I mentioned in</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the beginning</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> if</font> you decide<font color="#CCCCCC"> later that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you wanted to</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">change your color space you can come</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> up</font>

here<font color="#E5E5E5"> to edit you know you would select</font> your artwork<font color="#CCCCCC"> and then come to edit edit</font> colors and you can<font color="#E5E5E5"> convert</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> it to CMYK</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">grayscale along with all of these</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> other</font> options<font color="#E5E5E5"> here</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> but since nothing is</font> selected<font color="#E5E5E5"> it's all grayed out</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">you can also come up to file and check</font> out your<font color="#E5E5E5"> document color mode to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> see</font> which color mode you are<font color="#E5E5E5"> working in</font> currently<font color="#E5E5E5"> so that's another way to just</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">kind of quickly indicate or determine</font> how you will<font color="#E5E5E5"> be working so that's</font>

basically just<font color="#E5E5E5"> the you know very</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> very</font> basics how you create a new<font color="#CCCCCC"> document and</font> get<font color="#CCCCCC"> started</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> in Illustrator of course</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">you'll probably</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> want to save your work</font> you can save it<font color="#E5E5E5"> for web you can save</font> templates you can<font color="#E5E5E5"> save as a whole bunch</font>

of files but the ones that<font color="#CCCCCC"> I tend to use</font> the most<font color="#CCCCCC"> and the ones that you guys</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">probably use most frequently would be an</font> illustrator file in EPS<font color="#E5E5E5"> or</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> a</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> PDF so PDF</font> is you know pretty<font color="#CCCCCC"> universal you can open</font>

that<font color="#E5E5E5"> in Acrobat but EPS and and the</font> standard illustrator file<font color="#E5E5E5"> are the ones</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">that you'll probably use most of the</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">time so I'm</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just going to save that</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">might as well and when I do</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that you</font> also have this option<font color="#CCCCCC"> here which you can</font>

always save<font color="#CCCCCC"> your artwork</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> down to a</font> previous<font color="#CCCCCC"> version</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> illustrator</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and I</font> think it works<font color="#E5E5E5"> the same way in Photoshop</font> where let's say<font color="#E5E5E5"> you were handing these</font> files off to a printer<font color="#E5E5E5"> or to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> a friend or</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">whoever</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and they might not have the most</font>

recent<font color="#CCCCCC"> version of Illustrator or</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> just</font> the same<font color="#E5E5E5"> version that you have because I</font> I don't<font color="#E5E5E5"> have the most recent</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> version of</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">Illustrator</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> but</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you know it's more about</font> what<font color="#E5E5E5"> you do with the tools and always</font> having<font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> latest and greatest things so</font>

let's just say you know I was handing some graphics off to a printer and they only had cs4 if I try<font color="#E5E5E5"> to give</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> them my</font> cs6 file<font color="#CCCCCC"> they're not going to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> be able to</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">do too much</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> with it it might not work it</font> might have some problems<font color="#E5E5E5"> so that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> is why</font>

I would go<font color="#CCCCCC"> ahead and save it as a CSV</font> file instead and you get this little <font color="#CCCCCC">exclamation point this</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> little kind of</font> warning thing here<font color="#E5E5E5"> you can just</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> ignore</font> that<font color="#CCCCCC"> because you know it's just saying</font> basically<font color="#CCCCCC"> are you sure you want to do</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">this you know saving to an older format</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">may change some may cause some changes</font> on<font color="#E5E5E5"> the text and everything</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> like that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> but</font> in my<font color="#E5E5E5"> experience it has not messed that</font> up too much<font color="#CCCCCC"> all</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> right</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> so this other</font> stuff you don't<font color="#E5E5E5"> really have to worry</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">about too much your fonts all these</font> other options<font color="#E5E5E5"> are fine as is so I'm just</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">going</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> hit</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> OK now that we have our</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> new</font> file<font color="#E5E5E5"> let me just show</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you guys</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> really</font> quickly<font color="#E5E5E5"> if I wanted to add or remove</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">this artboard there's a quick way</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to do</font>

that if you look<font color="#E5E5E5"> over</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> here</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> in your</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">toolbar</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to the left</font> you've<font color="#E5E5E5"> got your artboard tool which</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">can also get by pressing</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> Shift</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> + o on</font> the keyboard<font color="#CCCCCC"> and with any of these tools</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">you'll</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> also actually see the keyboard</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">equivalent or the keyboard shortcut as</font> you hover<font color="#E5E5E5"> over them with your arrow tool</font> so once we select the artboard tool you'll see<font color="#E5E5E5"> that you kind of have this</font> dotted<font color="#E5E5E5"> line</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> going all</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> way</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> around and</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">it tells you</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that you're currently on</font>

artboard<font color="#E5E5E5"> 2 so I can move this artboard</font> around I can do whatever I want<font color="#CCCCCC"> with</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> it</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">but</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> for now</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I'm just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> going to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> delete</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> it</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">now if I change</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> my mind later and I want</font> to add another artboard<font color="#CCCCCC"> I can</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> just click on</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">it</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> again</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and come up here</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to the top</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> now</font> what I would<font color="#E5E5E5"> do is just</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> click this icon</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> says new artboard</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> and now I can add</font> this anywhere I want now it's nice <font color="#E5E5E5">because you know it's just</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> kind of</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">free-floating you can put it below your</font>

first artboard<font color="#CCCCCC"> or to the side</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of your</font> artboard<font color="#CCCCCC"> and you'll</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> notice as I do that</font> I'm not sure if you guys can<font color="#CCCCCC"> see it or</font> not<font color="#CCCCCC"> but there's a green line here and</font> those<font color="#E5E5E5"> are the smart guides that are</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">telling me that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> this artboard is you</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">know aligned by the top or on</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> left</font> side which is good because<font color="#E5E5E5"> it</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> helps you</font> line<font color="#E5E5E5"> things up now if I didn't have</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> my</font> smart guides<font color="#E5E5E5"> turned on which is under</font> the<font color="#CCCCCC"> View menu smart guys I could come up</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">here</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> choose something like snap to</font>

grid<font color="#CCCCCC"> snapped a point and what that would</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">do is kind of just</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> click this into place</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">whenever</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I got close to lining it up</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> all</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">right but that's</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> another way that</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">you can go about doing</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> it</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> if you wanted</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">to have</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> more</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> than one artboard</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> this is</font>

really handy<font color="#CCCCCC"> if you're creating you know</font> a set of graphics in one file let's say you're<font color="#E5E5E5"> creating</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> a you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> know a</font> look<font color="#E5E5E5"> across a whole suite of</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> things like</font> stickers<font color="#CCCCCC"> business cards all made from</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> a</font> logo it would be<font color="#E5E5E5"> really helpful to have</font>

multiple<font color="#CCCCCC"> artboards in one</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> document for</font> that<font color="#E5E5E5"> the see over here</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I've got my</font> layers<font color="#CCCCCC"> palette which is similar to</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">photoshop but but still</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> different</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">because you have to remember it's not</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">Photoshop we're in a different program</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">altogether</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> but I do have the ability to</font> still add layers<font color="#E5E5E5"> here which I can</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> turn</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">on and off</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> by poking the eye out like so</font> all right<font color="#E5E5E5"> you can</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just double click</font> these to rename them call them whatever you<font color="#E5E5E5"> want</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> you can also you know</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> click</font>

over here to<font color="#E5E5E5"> indicate this will this</font> just lets you know<font color="#CCCCCC"> which layer is</font> indicated or selected at<font color="#CCCCCC"> the moment and</font> if I want to<font color="#E5E5E5"> delete these I can just</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">hold down shift and click on them and</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">then hit this</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> trash</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> can down</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> here so</font>

this this<font color="#E5E5E5"> is</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just kind of you know</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">getting you guys set</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> up and ready to to</font> work and if at any<font color="#E5E5E5"> point</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> in time</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you</font> want to<font color="#CCCCCC"> kind of move</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> around your</font> workspace freely just<font color="#E5E5E5"> like Photoshop you</font> can hold down<font color="#CCCCCC"> the spacebar</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> get the</font>

hand tool<font color="#E5E5E5"> and then</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just click and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> drag</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">your mouse</font> move around<font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> document which is</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> super</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">handy when you're really zoomed in and</font> you<font color="#CCCCCC"> just want to see some details in</font> your<font color="#E5E5E5"> work</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> all right</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> so let's go ahead</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">and</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> actually</font> you know start<font color="#E5E5E5"> creating something I'm</font> going<font color="#E5E5E5"> to come down here to my shape</font> tools<font color="#E5E5E5"> and you can see that I have a</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">rectangle tool a rounded rectangle tool</font> ellipse tool polygon tool start tool and

a<font color="#E5E5E5"> flare tool so these are your basic</font> shapes and<font color="#CCCCCC"> illustrator that you can</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> work</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">with of course</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you can modify</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> any of</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">these but I just</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> want to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> show you guys</font> some basic<font color="#E5E5E5"> stuff</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> here so I'm just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> going</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">to click and drag out a shape and you'll</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">notice that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you know I can just kind of</font> move this<font color="#CCCCCC"> wherever I want</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> but what</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> if I</font> wanted<font color="#E5E5E5"> to make this a square and not</font> really a rectangle<font color="#E5E5E5"> or a bar well the</font> easy way<font color="#E5E5E5"> the easy</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> answer for that is to</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">hold</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> down the shift key by holding down</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">the shift key</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and dragging with any of</font> these shapes is going to constrain<font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">proportions</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> so that means that as long</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">as</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I have the shift key down it's always</font> going<font color="#E5E5E5"> to remain a perfect</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> square and the</font> same thing if I did this with a circle

<font color="#E5E5E5">which you can just get by pressing L on</font> the keyboard<font color="#CCCCCC"> alright if I did that you</font> can see if I'm<font color="#E5E5E5"> not holding shift it's</font> just kind of allowing me to make <font color="#E5E5E5">whatever shape I want but as soon as I</font> hold<font color="#CCCCCC"> shift down it</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> constrains the</font>

proportions<font color="#E5E5E5"> and remains a perfect circle</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">all right so that's just kind of a quick</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">little tip there</font> I'm just using<font color="#E5E5E5"> my arrow to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> select some</font> of<font color="#CCCCCC"> these</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> shapes and delete them</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> so that</font> all I'm left with now is my circle<font color="#E5E5E5"> now</font>

by<font color="#E5E5E5"> default in</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> illustrator I have my</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">selection tool</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> which</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> is V and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> this</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> is</font> the the arrow that<font color="#E5E5E5"> I use most of the</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">time however because illustrator is a</font> vector program<font color="#E5E5E5"> it's made out of you know</font> points and curves and paths<font color="#E5E5E5"> and things</font>

like<font color="#E5E5E5"> that that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> are</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> completely scalable</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">so if I just select</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> this real quick</font> you'll see that<font color="#E5E5E5"> I've kind of got these</font> four handles on the on the edges<font color="#CCCCCC"> of my</font> circle in this bounding box I just wanted<font color="#CCCCCC"> to modify one point on the</font>

circle well how could I do that<font color="#CCCCCC"> I</font> wouldn't<font color="#E5E5E5"> really be</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> using this arrow too</font> much<font color="#E5E5E5"> although I could just kind</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> of</font> stretch and squish the shape by grabbing <font color="#E5E5E5">these handles but instead what I would</font> do is switch to<font color="#E5E5E5"> my other arrow tool</font>

which is the direct selection tool<font color="#E5E5E5"> or a</font> on the<font color="#E5E5E5"> keyboard and as soon as I do that</font> you<font color="#E5E5E5"> can see that my bounding box goes</font> away so here I have V then I go to<font color="#E5E5E5"> my</font> direct<font color="#CCCCCC"> selection tool</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and now I can see</font> these points<font color="#CCCCCC"> and as I hover my cursor</font>

over<font color="#E5E5E5"> them you can see that my smart</font> guides come up and it says anchor so now if I click<font color="#E5E5E5"> on this point</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I have two</font> handles<font color="#E5E5E5"> which are attached to that point</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">and I</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> can use these</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> handles</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to either</font> extend<font color="#CCCCCC"> and morph my shape</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> or I can you</font>

know<font color="#E5E5E5"> bring it upwards and kind of pinch</font> it<font color="#E5E5E5"> and transform it and just change it</font> so these handles are really useful<font color="#CCCCCC"> with</font> any point that you're using an illustrator so let's say I wanted to you <font color="#CCCCCC">know</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> just bring this out here I could</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">just click on that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> one</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> point and drag</font> all<font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> way to the left to create this</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">kind of like being or egg shape here</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> all</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">right and I</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> could do the same</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> thing on</font> this side <font color="#E5E5E5">and then I can use this handle</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to maybe</font>

you<font color="#E5E5E5"> know make</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> it more of a oblong</font> looking shape<font color="#CCCCCC"> I don't know if</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I'm using</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> word correctly</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I just oblong just</font> sounded good<font color="#E5E5E5"> so that's what we're making</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">and I kind of looks</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> like a dinosaur</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> egg</font> or like a jelly bean<font color="#E5E5E5"> or</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> something</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> maybe</font>

a grimace<font color="#E5E5E5"> like let's make them purple</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">all right so now</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that I have this shape</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">I'm coming over here</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> just opening my</font> swatches<font color="#E5E5E5"> and your swatches are just some</font> preset colors and I<font color="#E5E5E5"> can show you guys</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">later</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> on how to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> create your own presets</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">and folders</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to set up colors but because</font> of<font color="#E5E5E5"> this shape because the shape look</font> like grimace I just want to make<font color="#CCCCCC"> it</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">purple okay</font> so now<font color="#E5E5E5"> that we</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> have this transform shape</font> here let's make<font color="#E5E5E5"> another shape another</font>

circle<font color="#E5E5E5"> and</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> we can make this one red</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> or</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">black or any color we want now you'll</font> notice that both of these shapes<font color="#CCCCCC"> I have</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">a fill color</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and there's a little</font> outline<font color="#E5E5E5"> around it so if I just click on</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> shape here you'll notice at the</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">bottom of my</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> toolbar I've got a fill</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">color and a stroke color and by pressing</font> X on<font color="#E5E5E5"> the keyboard</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> can toggle back and</font> forth between<font color="#E5E5E5"> those two if I if I let's</font> say toggle so that my stroke is in the front<font color="#CCCCCC"> I can click this little button</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">here that says none it's just basically</font> a white box<font color="#E5E5E5"> with a red strike through it</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">and that's going to remove the stroke</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">from my shape now you can also do this</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">with</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> your fill color and remove that so</font> that<font color="#CCCCCC"> all you have is the outline</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and let</font>

me show you how this works<font color="#E5E5E5"> okay if I</font> have a fill color here okay<font color="#E5E5E5"> but now</font> whenever I move this black circle<font color="#E5E5E5"> in</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">front of the purple shape you know you</font> can't see through<font color="#CCCCCC"> it right it kind of</font> looks like a purple avocado right now

but as<font color="#E5E5E5"> soon as I you know click this to</font> say no fill color now I can see through it<font color="#E5E5E5"> all that's there is the outline</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> on my</font> circle so if these shapes are overlapping and I can see through it<font color="#E5E5E5"> all</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">right</font>

now let's say I wanted to<font color="#E5E5E5"> move the</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">circle over</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> here but maybe I</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> want the</font> purple shape in<font color="#CCCCCC"> front I want this shape</font> to be in front<font color="#E5E5E5"> of the circle well how</font> could I do that<font color="#E5E5E5"> well there's a few</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> ways</font> and the easiest way of<font color="#E5E5E5"> all is to select</font>

the<font color="#E5E5E5"> shape that you</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> want to be in the</font> front <font color="#CCCCCC">come up</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> here to the object menu and</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">choose arrange bring to front and that</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">will</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> bring this shape in front of it now</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">another thing</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you could do instead is to</font>

select the purple shape you want and then we want<font color="#E5E5E5"> to bring up our layers</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">palate which you can get</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> buy</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> windows</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">checking off layers and you'll see right</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">now both of these shapes are on the same</font> layer<font color="#CCCCCC"> so if I select my circle press</font>

command + X to cut the shape add a new <font color="#E5E5E5">layer and then press command V to paste</font> it I've<font color="#CCCCCC"> just pasted</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> it in front of this</font> shape<font color="#CCCCCC"> right but we want it</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to go behind</font> so I'm going<font color="#CCCCCC"> to do is just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> drag that</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">layer behind layer</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> one so you can</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> do it</font>

by either<font color="#E5E5E5"> putting these shapes on</font> different<font color="#E5E5E5"> layers or using the object</font> arrange feature here to bring<font color="#E5E5E5"> a shape</font> all the<font color="#CCCCCC"> way to the front</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you can send it</font> forward ahead<font color="#E5E5E5"> of one shape at a time</font> backwards one shape at a time or all<font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">way to the back so this is basically</font> going<font color="#CCCCCC"> to control the arrangement or</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font> you know<font color="#E5E5E5"> the layers of your shapes if</font> you have them on<font color="#E5E5E5"> the same layer</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> so I'm</font> just going<font color="#E5E5E5"> to go ahead and put these</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> on</font> the same layer once again<font color="#CCCCCC"> and that's how</font>

you can do that as well<font color="#CCCCCC"> as using your</font> fill<font color="#CCCCCC"> and stroke</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> now when I</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> select this</font> purple shape I still have a stroke here but let's say I want<font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> make it a</font> thicker stroke or change the color<font color="#CCCCCC"> of</font> the stroke<font color="#E5E5E5"> well you can come</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> up to</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">window and choose stroke here or you can</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">also come over</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> here to your toolbar and</font> you'll see these three<font color="#E5E5E5"> little lines with</font> varying thickness and<font color="#E5E5E5"> that's your stroke</font> option so if I click<font color="#CCCCCC"> that you'll</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> see</font> there's this<font color="#E5E5E5"> option here called</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the</font>

weight and as I<font color="#CCCCCC"> click that number up the</font> higher we go the<font color="#CCCCCC"> thicker our stroke the</font> thicker the outline is getting but you can also come down<font color="#E5E5E5"> to the drop</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> down menu</font> here<font color="#CCCCCC"> and just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> choose a setting like</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">okay so now we have them big a stroke on</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">this on this</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> grimace shape here and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> if</font> we<font color="#E5E5E5"> want to change the color of it we can</font> simply<font color="#CCCCCC"> double-click on the stroke here</font> in the bottom<font color="#CCCCCC"> left and pick any</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of these</font> other colors<font color="#CCCCCC"> that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> we like just like we</font> can double click<font color="#E5E5E5"> the fill color and</font>

change<font color="#E5E5E5"> that as well</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> okay</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and same</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> thing</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">with the circle right</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> now</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I don't</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> have</font> any fill at all<font color="#E5E5E5"> but let's say I</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">wanted to have a black stroke and no</font> fill<font color="#CCCCCC"> a quick way that I can do that as I</font> showed you<font color="#CCCCCC"> before you</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> can press X to</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">toggle between the fill and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the stroke</font> color if I do that<font color="#CCCCCC"> while holding the shift key</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">I can now toggle the color that I have</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">and it will just make</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> it go</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> from a fill</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">to a stroke stroke to a fill</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> right so</font>

I'm just<font color="#CCCCCC"> going to make it a stroke and</font> let's say I'll make this have a weight of<font color="#CCCCCC"> about ten okay so that's</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> how you</font> would do that<font color="#E5E5E5"> now let's just get rid of</font> these and I'm going<font color="#CCCCCC"> to select my</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> pen</font> tool click once<font color="#CCCCCC"> hold down the shift key</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">and click over here now we've got a line</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">very basic right just a simple line but</font> you'll notice<font color="#E5E5E5"> that the ends of this line</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">are like you know</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> just flat just 90</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">degree flat angle but if I select</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">and come back over</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> here to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> my stroke</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">dialog box</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I can again</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> change the weight</font> but you also have this option<font color="#CCCCCC"> here</font> called cap<font color="#E5E5E5"> and corner now by default</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">you're going to have this flush flat cap</font> and<font color="#E5E5E5"> a</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> 90</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> degree angle</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> for the corner but</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">you can make it a rounded cap instead so</font>

you'll<font color="#E5E5E5"> get this nice kind of rounded</font> line<font color="#E5E5E5"> and if I</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> select my</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> pen tool click</font> on<font color="#E5E5E5"> this point here and then click</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">anywhere else let's just hold</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> down the</font> shift<font color="#CCCCCC"> key and click down here</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> now you'll</font> see that<font color="#E5E5E5"> my corner is also rounded so</font>

it's a quick<font color="#E5E5E5"> way to kind of get you know</font> change these<font color="#CCCCCC"> settings of your stroke you</font> also have these other<font color="#CCCCCC"> options down here</font> called<font color="#CCCCCC"> dashed line now if I check that</font> off<font color="#E5E5E5"> it's basically going to turn this</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">into like a you know it'll be a stroke</font>

still but it's allowing you to control <font color="#E5E5E5">both the dash and the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> gap in between</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">okay so i zoom</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> in here you can see it a</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">little bit better</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> now</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> let's just play</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">around with this a little bit and the</font> reason<font color="#CCCCCC"> I'm going</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> every other number</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> and</font>

just changing<font color="#E5E5E5"> the gap space is because I</font> want<font color="#CCCCCC"> to see how that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> affects our stroke</font> as we go<font color="#E5E5E5"> so say I make the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> dash 0 and</font> leave the gap at 4 well now I've just created<font color="#E5E5E5"> a basically a dotted line</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> for a</font> stroke<font color="#E5E5E5"> so it's a really</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> easy</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> way</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to do</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">that to just modify your stroke</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> if I</font> want the dots to be larger I'm just going<font color="#E5E5E5"> to increase the weight of the line</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">and also increase the gap so instead</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> of</font> 4 let's make it 12 and now you can see we've<font color="#CCCCCC"> just got some larger dots alright</font>

so<font color="#E5E5E5"> that's a few ways that you can use</font> the stroke tool<font color="#E5E5E5"> on creating</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> some basic</font> shapes<font color="#CCCCCC"> changing the fill and stroke</font> colors I<font color="#E5E5E5"> showed you guys</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> your swatches</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">over here and just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the basics of</font> creating<font color="#E5E5E5"> and setting up a new file in</font>

Adobe<font color="#CCCCCC"> Illustrator so</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> let me just come</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">back here create a couple more shapes to</font> show you guys<font color="#E5E5E5"> and again if I have a</font> stroke that<font color="#CCCCCC"> I just want to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> make</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> a solid</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">black fill I'll hold down</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the shift key</font> and<font color="#CCCCCC"> press X</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and that will</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> basically</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> just</font>

give me a black fill and I've got this stroke<font color="#CCCCCC"> behind it let's change the color</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">again from a black fill - let's say</font> solid blue<font color="#CCCCCC"> okay</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> now again</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> if I want the</font> stroke to overlap the blue shape that I have here<font color="#E5E5E5"> I'm just going to come</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> up</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to</font>

the object<font color="#CCCCCC"> menu and choose arrange</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> send</font> to back and now this shape is basically in front another way I could<font color="#CCCCCC"> have</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> done</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">that is to select the shape that's</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> in</font> the back<font color="#CCCCCC"> which is our dotted our dotted</font> stroke here and come up<font color="#E5E5E5"> to object</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">arrange bring to front so either one of</font> those will<font color="#CCCCCC"> work for you let's say I just</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">want to make this instead</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> of a black</font> stroke just<font color="#CCCCCC"> change it to white all right</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">so now it kind of</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> looks you can't see it</font> because<font color="#E5E5E5"> it's</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> on a white canvas but if I</font>

move<font color="#E5E5E5"> it off of our artboard here you'll</font> see that I've just changed<font color="#E5E5E5"> the color</font> like that<font color="#E5E5E5"> now these are just some you</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">know some</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> basic things to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> get you</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">started in Adobe Illustrator</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I've showed</font> you the selection tool the direct

selection tool<font color="#CCCCCC"> as well</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> as that object</font> arrange some layer features that you have<font color="#E5E5E5"> over here along</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> with a few other</font> things<font color="#E5E5E5"> so I just wanted to get you guys</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">kind of up and running</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> here but let's</font> keep it moving<font color="#CCCCCC"> alright</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> so as I showed</font>

you<font color="#CCCCCC"> before</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> if I press</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> my direct</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">selection tool</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> which</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> is a on the</font> keyboard<font color="#CCCCCC"> I have the ability to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> modify</font> these points so I'm just clicking<font color="#E5E5E5"> and</font> dragging to<font color="#E5E5E5"> change the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the shape</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> of my</font> box here<font color="#CCCCCC"> all</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> right let's say I want</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font>

create a triangle<font color="#E5E5E5"> out of</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> this box shape</font> here or anything else<font color="#E5E5E5"> I can</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just click</font> on this<font color="#E5E5E5"> point delete it and now I've</font> basically got a triangle<font color="#CCCCCC"> but</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I'm going</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">to want to close this shape still so I'm</font> going to<font color="#E5E5E5"> press</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> P on the keyboard to</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">select my pen tool</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> click on</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the bottom</font> corner<font color="#E5E5E5"> and then just come up here</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> as</font> I go to click on this top corner<font color="#E5E5E5"> you'll</font> see that there's a<font color="#E5E5E5"> small circle icon</font> that appears it looks like a letter<font color="#E5E5E5"> O</font> just<font color="#E5E5E5"> below my pen cursor</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> all right and</font>

that's just<font color="#E5E5E5"> letting me know</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that I</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> am</font> over<font color="#CCCCCC"> the the Anchor Point</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and if I click</font> here<font color="#E5E5E5"> it's going to close the shape so</font> now if I change<font color="#E5E5E5"> the color</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I can make</font> this you know anything I want<font color="#E5E5E5"> although</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I</font> have this set to<font color="#CCCCCC"> my stroke color at the</font>

moment so how do I get<font color="#CCCCCC"> rid of</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> that well</font> I can<font color="#CCCCCC"> press shift X to make the green my</font> fill color<font color="#CCCCCC"> and then this stroke to set</font> the stroke<font color="#CCCCCC"> to none</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I'm just clicking</font> this iconic<font color="#CCCCCC"> little slash through it</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and</font> now I've got<font color="#CCCCCC"> my triangle now let's say I</font>

want to make<font color="#E5E5E5"> a couple copies of this</font> triangle<font color="#E5E5E5"> sure I can press</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> command C</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and</font> then just command V and<font color="#E5E5E5"> it will paste it</font> wherever but<font color="#E5E5E5"> what if I want to paste</font> this directly<font color="#E5E5E5"> on top of</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> this shape</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> or</font> just drag a copy out well you can<font color="#CCCCCC"> go</font>

either<font color="#CCCCCC"> way</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> so I'm</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> going to click</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> on my</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">triangle and then hold</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> down</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the Alt key</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">and just drag and</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that will make a copy</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">of</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> your shape you can do this as</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> many</font> times<font color="#E5E5E5"> as you want and you</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> know that's a</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">really easy way</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> drag out a copy</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">now if I do that again</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> holding</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> down alt</font> but this time I hold the<font color="#CCCCCC"> shift key at</font> the same<font color="#E5E5E5"> time it's going</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to basically</font> force me to<font color="#E5E5E5"> drag it out in a line so</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> it lines up</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> perfectly and this will</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">work if I'm dragging it down up left or</font>

right doesn't<font color="#CCCCCC"> matter</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> so holding</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> down the</font> alt<font color="#E5E5E5"> and</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> shift at the same time</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> will keep</font> everything nice<font color="#CCCCCC"> and lined up ok so</font> here's another way to do<font color="#E5E5E5"> it I can click</font> on the<font color="#CCCCCC"> triangle shape</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> press command</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> C to</font> copy<font color="#CCCCCC"> but instead of command V I'm</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> going</font>

to press command F and that<font color="#CCCCCC"> will paste</font> in<font color="#CCCCCC"> place so another way that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> could</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">have</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> done that is</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to come up</font> here to the<font color="#E5E5E5"> Edit menu and choose paste</font> in front<font color="#E5E5E5"> right sorry I said paste in</font> place<font color="#CCCCCC"> but it's paste in front you can</font>

also paste them back<font color="#E5E5E5"> paste in place is</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">actually kind of the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> same thing as paste</font> in<font color="#CCCCCC"> front but you also have the option to</font> paste<font color="#CCCCCC"> that shape</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> onto all</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> of your art</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">boards</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> so there's a few</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> ways that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">can go with</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> but now that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> I've done</font>

that<font color="#CCCCCC"> again I can hold</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> down shift and</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">move this out if I want it to line up or</font> I<font color="#E5E5E5"> can</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just drag it wherever I like</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">alright so I've got two</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> copies now</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> and I</font> have my my main selection<font color="#E5E5E5"> tool selected</font> so you'll see once<font color="#E5E5E5"> again I have this</font>

bounding box<font color="#E5E5E5"> now if I hover my</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> cursor</font> over<font color="#E5E5E5"> any of these corners of</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the</font> bounding box<font color="#CCCCCC"> you'll see how it changes</font> into<font color="#E5E5E5"> this kind of curved arrow now if I</font> just<font color="#E5E5E5"> click and</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> drag it's allowing me to</font> rotate<font color="#E5E5E5"> and I'm just kind of rotating it</font>

freely however I want but<font color="#E5E5E5"> again if I do</font> this while holding<font color="#CCCCCC"> down the shift key</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">it's going</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to rotate</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> by increments of</font> about 45 degrees<font color="#E5E5E5"> so that's a way</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to keep</font> it<font color="#CCCCCC"> you know very</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> precise and geometric</font> so let's say I wanted<font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> move this over</font>

here<font color="#CCCCCC"> and you can</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> see my smart guides are</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">telling me</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> this is intersecting and</font> lined up let's say I wanted<font color="#E5E5E5"> to make this</font> a square again<font color="#E5E5E5"> how can I do that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> with</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">this shape</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> if it's going</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the wrong</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> way</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">okay well I can basically</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> just tell this</font>

to flip the other way like<font color="#CCCCCC"> I would in</font> Photoshop if I were to<font color="#E5E5E5"> tell it you</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> know</font> select free transform flip horizontally but<font color="#E5E5E5"> again it's illustrator so it works a</font> little bit differently<font color="#E5E5E5"> now even if I</font> were<font color="#E5E5E5"> to hold down the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> shift key and kind</font>

of rotate it<font color="#CCCCCC"> I could do that and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> then</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">just hold down shift and</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> move it</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> over</font> until<font color="#E5E5E5"> it snaps into</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> place and I've got a</font> perfect square again I just<font color="#CCCCCC"> kind of</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">reassembled</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> those pieces</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> but</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> another way</font> I could<font color="#E5E5E5"> do it is to select the shape</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">come back up</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the object</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> menu and go</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">to transform reflect and doing that you</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">can check off</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> this</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> box this is preview</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">and you can then choose whether you want</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">to rotate it on a horizontal</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> or vertical</font> access in this case I want<font color="#E5E5E5"> it to be a</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">vertical</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> access I'm just going</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> hit OK</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">and do the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> same thing hold down the</font> shift key slide it into<font color="#E5E5E5"> place</font> and bam we've basically got our square okay it's<font color="#E5E5E5"> still technically two</font> different shapes<font color="#CCCCCC"> and you can kind of see</font>

in the middle here where<font color="#CCCCCC"> it's splits so</font> what would<font color="#E5E5E5"> I do if I wanted to join</font> those into one solid<font color="#E5E5E5"> shape now there's a</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">few ways</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> you can go about</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> this as</font> well<font color="#E5E5E5"> but the easiest way is to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> use a</font> tool<font color="#E5E5E5"> that we have over here</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> called the</font>

shape builder<font color="#E5E5E5"> tool</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> now what that's</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> going</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">to allow</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> us to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> do is click on this first</font> shape and then grab our shape<font color="#E5E5E5"> builder</font> and then we're just<font color="#E5E5E5"> going to sorry I</font> need<font color="#E5E5E5"> to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> actually</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> have both of these</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">shapes selected so click on</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> your first</font>

shape<font color="#E5E5E5"> hold down</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the shift key and click</font> on your<font color="#E5E5E5"> second shape which is this top</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">piece here and then we will select our</font> shape builder tool<font color="#E5E5E5"> now you can see as I</font> move<font color="#E5E5E5"> over either one of these selected</font> shapes<font color="#E5E5E5"> it's kind of giving me this like</font>

halftone<font color="#CCCCCC"> circular</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> kind of highlight so</font> I'm going<font color="#E5E5E5"> to click and</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> drag over</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> into</font> the<font color="#E5E5E5"> other shape that I want to join and</font> then release my cursor and now it has <font color="#CCCCCC">just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> joined those two shapes together</font> now this will also work<font color="#E5E5E5"> if I</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> had other</font>

shapes<font color="#E5E5E5"> too let's say I had a circle</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that</font> I wanted<font color="#E5E5E5"> to join with a square and then</font> I want the<font color="#E5E5E5"> bottom to be a triangle like</font> we started<font color="#E5E5E5"> with okay it works the same</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">way I'm just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> closing</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> shape with my</font> pen tool<font color="#E5E5E5"> moving it over here with my</font>

selection<font color="#CCCCCC"> tool</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and I'm going to rotate</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">it by</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> holding down the shift key and</font> dragging<font color="#E5E5E5"> from</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> the corners</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> okay and let's</font> say that<font color="#CCCCCC"> I want to line these up well</font> the way<font color="#E5E5E5"> I'm going to do that is make</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">sure that this is centered by click and</font>

drag to<font color="#CCCCCC"> select</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> all three of these shapes</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">and as I do that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> up</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> here I've got all of</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">these</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> options for alignment</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> horizontal</font> align left<font color="#CCCCCC"> horizontal align Center</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> which</font> is what we want<font color="#E5E5E5"> so I'm</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> going to click</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">that</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and everything will be lined up but</font>

you<font color="#E5E5E5"> could also align it to the right</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">edge vertical</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> align to the top</font> vertical align<font color="#E5E5E5"> Center as well</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> as some of</font> these other options<font color="#E5E5E5"> that you</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> have to</font> distribute the shapes<font color="#E5E5E5"> evenly which I can</font> get more<font color="#E5E5E5"> into a little bit later on</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> but</font>

for now<font color="#E5E5E5"> let's</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just back up a</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> little bit</font> and make<font color="#E5E5E5"> sure that our everything is</font> aligned vertically<font color="#E5E5E5"> through the center</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">okay so now that that's done press a</font> once again<font color="#E5E5E5"> to give you the option to</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">select your points</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> and now I'm going</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> to</font>

click<font color="#E5E5E5"> and hold</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> down</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> shift key</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and</font> just<font color="#E5E5E5"> drag</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> this over</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> until it snaps into</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">place with the edge of</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> my</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> box do the</font> same<font color="#E5E5E5"> thing on the left side</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> click on</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font> anchor<font color="#CCCCCC"> hold down shift and drag it over</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">here</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and now I'm going to select the</font>

bottom shape<font color="#CCCCCC"> hold down the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> shift key</font> click<font color="#CCCCCC"> on</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> square in the middle</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> and</font> then while<font color="#CCCCCC"> still holding</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the shift key</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">click</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> on my circle now I've got all</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">three</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> of</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> these shapes selected I'm going</font> to come back<font color="#CCCCCC"> over here to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> my shape</font>

builder<font color="#CCCCCC"> tool and then click from</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">bottom and</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> just drag up until I have</font> this<font color="#E5E5E5"> entire shape selected and now once</font> I release the cursor I've basically<font color="#E5E5E5"> just</font> created what looks<font color="#CCCCCC"> like a really wide</font> kind<font color="#E5E5E5"> of cartoony pencil all right but</font>

that's kind of a quick and<font color="#CCCCCC"> easy</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> way to</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">just</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> merge these shapes together into</font> one cohesive shape now you'll see if i <font color="#CCCCCC">zoom in here while I still have my</font> direct<font color="#CCCCCC"> selection tool selected</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> it's</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">showing me these anchor</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> points again if</font>

I click<font color="#CCCCCC"> on it I can</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> modify</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> these handles</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">but one thing</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that you'll notice</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> is</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> that</font> it's actually<font color="#E5E5E5"> created a couple of extra</font> points<font color="#CCCCCC"> that we don't</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> need so one thing</font> to<font color="#E5E5E5"> be mindful of when you're working in</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">Illustrator is you don't want to have a</font>

lot<font color="#CCCCCC"> of you know useless points so even</font> here there's two<font color="#E5E5E5"> points so I'm just</font> going<font color="#CCCCCC"> to cut</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> it</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> a pressing command</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> X to</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">remove that extra</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> point</font> now what happens though<font color="#CCCCCC"> when I did that</font> is<font color="#CCCCCC"> that this point and the point on the</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">bottom</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> are no</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> longer joined</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> so if I move</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">one you know it's kind of</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> getting messed</font> up so what I can<font color="#CCCCCC"> do is</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> again press P to</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">get your pen tool</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> I'm going</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> click on</font> this point here come down<font color="#CCCCCC"> to this point</font> and you'll see that<font color="#E5E5E5"> circle again that's</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">letting me know that I'm about to</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> close</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">the path which is</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> what I want to do</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">all right so</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> click there</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> now we're</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> going</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">to check this side as well because</font> there's a couple<font color="#E5E5E5"> of extra points one</font> extra point<font color="#E5E5E5"> at least that I can just cut</font>

Video Description

In this video I will be walking you through some of the basics in Adobe Illustrator starting from the very beginning when you first open the program. I will show you some of the different options you have for creating a document, how to set up your workspace with art boards, explaining some of the differences between RGB and CMYK, working with basic shapes, swatches and more. Over the course of the video series you will have most, if not all you need to know to get up and running in Adobe Illustrator.
