Adobe Illustrator for Logo Design, a Co-Lab Roots + DukeCreate Workshop


Please login to enroll is this event.


This class is the second of a Design series, where students will learn how to use an array of Adobe Cloud products via designing multiple elements for a fictional business. In this particular class, we will talk briefly about logos (types and roles), before diving into Adobe Illustrator itself. We will look at the different tools offered by Adobe Illustrator (including artboards, text, shapes, color and more) while recreating a couple logo options for our fictional business decided on during the first class of the series.

Please bring a laptop and make sure to have downloaded and installed Adobe Illustrator before class. Students can get access to all Adobe software for free via https://software.duke.edu/

Edit: Please download and install Thasadith from Google Fonts (https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Thasadith?selection.family=Thasadith), as well as the zip file containing the Illustrator files we will be working with:

The TEC (Technology Engagement Center) Classroom is in the Telcom Building. To get there, just walk down the stairs from Perkins/Bostock like you’re heading towards CIEMAS. When you get to the road halfway down, make a right and Telcom is the building ahead of you to the left. The Technology Engagement Center is the first floor, so just enter in the front of the building. The classroom is to the right of the entrance, adjacent to the center circular room. http://maps.duke.edu/map/?id=21&mrkIid=2765
