Objective: You’ll be creating your own set of Summer inspired vector graphics. A vector graphic set is a collection of like-themed elements that you can use in a variety of ways within your projects. We thought it would be fun to make it a Summer theme so feel free to create your set with whatever “Summer” means to you. For example, you could create a set of vector plants, beach items or even abstract summer shapes that feel light, airy and bright.
Suggested Size: Any size or proportion will work
Suggested Program: Illustrator or any vector-based program
Goal Date: June 30th
PD Preferred GIF Creation Method: As always we encourage you to start out with sketching your ideas on paper before jumping on the computer. You can draw your sets using ink pens or markers and then scan them in and live trace your actual sketches if you want a rougher feel or you can use them as a source of inspiration and smooth them out more in Illustrator using the pen tool, etc. Try out different color palettes with your set and maybe export multiple sets with different color themes. When your set is complete export your set using the libraries panel inside of Illustrator. If you’re not sure how to do this here is a short video that shows you how. You can also save your file as an eps or svg and open it up any time you want to pull something from it.
