Our first Construction Papers release! (Limited Edition Printed Version! only 250 copies!) Merit: A Guide to Making Better Badges. This guide focuses on designing pieces that echo old "state" logos, most popular in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. Even though the roots of badges lie in the past, Merit covers all uses for badges- badges of merit, badges of honor, seals, emblems, and just straight shaped goodness.
In the course you'll learn:
How to transfer sketches to vector artwork.
How to get the math right when designing logos and working with shape.
How to iterate quickly, and use non-destructive workflows in adobe illustrator.
How to work with text on paths more effectively, and work with block grid laying to speed yourself up when designing.
How to craft Custom text, and edit anchors and paths to fit your shapes both manually, and in automation.
