Color, Form, and Production has been focusing on the basics of computer work. All of our projects have been dealing with the introduction to Illustrator by Adobe. I have still been working with the Shell logo but I have been given the chance to play around with Illustrator on it and work out how to use the program. I played around with the perspective tool a lot and also tried out some of the effects including bulge and extrude. One of the final and most important processes i learned how to do was after the assignment was over and it was how to crop pieces off, which makes life so much easier now. Using the abilities I have learned in the first two weeks of class I have been using Illustrator to work on designs and templates for Visual Communication. Illustrator gives the ability to quickly make changes which is helpful in the planning stages.
