Adobe Animate combines the power of Adobe Illustrator with the ease of Adobe Photoshop. If you are a designer or digital artist looking for a quick and easy way to create vector art, this course is for you. You don’t need to learn Adobe Illustrator. This course will teach you everything you need to know about Adobe Animate in order to create stunning graphics and complex designs, easily. Adobe Animate is a powerful design tool and is much easier to grasp than Adobe Illustrator. If you’re more familiar with Photoshop, and you find Illustrator to be complex and process-driven, then Animate offers you the best solution to create vector art. And, if you are very comfortable with Adobe Illustrator, then this course will teach you how to switch over to Animate so that you can master the drawing and painting tools as a preliminary to learning motion design. Because in Adobe Animate you can sketch your ideas, design your artwork and animate it all in one program without having to export over to After Effects. Adobe Animate can handle sketching, design, as well as animation. This class focusses on getting you up to speed with the design aspect of the software. In this class youll learn everything you need to know how to make stunning and beautiful graphics for logo design, icon design, badges, posters and illustration. First of all im going to give you an overview of the workspace and tools, and how to set up your workspace for designing. THen well put to practical use all of the tools in 4 fun projects. Youll start out creating a super simple set of icons with simple shapes and lines. Then youll develop slightly more complex work with 2 graphics for a logo. In the 3rd project build an even more sophisticated and intricate graphic and learn how to use gradients and masks. In the final project, youll get to recreate a beautiful movie poster based on an iconic design. This project will teach you how to make a double exposure effect as well as how to import bitmaps, use effects and blending modes. Finally Ill show you the capabilities that Animate has to handle type and to cusomtise your own unique fonts. People often think of Adobe Animate has having 2 sides - its either either web development, or its Animation. But theres a third, and powerful side to Animate - and that is its capability as a graphic design tool. Im really excited to share this with you and to give you the option to create graphics quickly and easily.
