Building Infographics with Illustrator class description

This hands-on class will teach you how to visually tell a story using Adobe Illustrator. Find out more impactful ways to convey your ideas graphically as you progress through structured exercises. We'll conceptualize, plan and create a set of infographics, working though some interrelated projects.

Class participation is mandatory: We'll be looking at and discussing all students' work, creating several layouts for each project and reviewing them as a group on-screen. You'll bring home all of your class files at the end of the workshop. Bring paper and pencil for sketching, plus a willingness to experiment.

an example:

who should take this class?

  • Students who have taken our lecture-based Graphic Design Overview, and are now craving hands-on time with instructor feedback.
  • Those with technical experience in Illustrator who wish to improve the creativity, impact and effectiveness of their infographics.
  • Individuals needing to create more interesting and compelling maps, charts, graphs, icons and logos.

What's Covered (always customized for the students in attendance):

Fundamentals
  • The seven basics: line, color, shape, size, space, texture, and value
  • Using color
  • Creating mood and tone through color
  • Applying fills, strokes and shading for visual impact
Typography
  • Kerning, spacing and sizing
  • Selecting fonts that best express the tone, purpose, and readability of the design
Editing shapes
  • Using the selection and direct selection tools, rotate, shear and flip.
  • Using the Pathfinder tool, grouping and arranging functions.
Hands-on projects--Creating:
  • Containers and shapes
  • Borders and strokes
  • Fills, custom lines, patterns
  • Custom shapes, editing existing shapes, adding dimension and shading to objects.
Building the designs
We'll start with some rough sketching to explore and plan out our ideas, eventually creating 4 digital icons/infographics--plus a logo--that convey a visual cohesiveness. We'll then begin incorporating them into a collateral piece (as time allows), adding type and color to convey a clear, easy to read message.
