What you will learn

At the end of this course, students will be able to create nice vector illustrations.

They will also be anble to create a concept design for a website.


Description

In this course you will learn how to use the professional vector drawing software Affinity designer ver 1.5. You will also learn how to create a responsive website design and redesign it in RocketCake, so to export it to the web. You will learn how the tools in Affinity Designer work and I will go through several samples. If you want more samples, you can leave a request and I will see what I can do for you. The course will continue to change, so stay tuned.
Vector art is usefull for creating designs for websites and for printing purposes. Traditional drawings will pixelate when enlarged. Vector art will always look sharp.
If you want to learn Affinity designer, please enroll.
This course is made using Affinity designer for Windows, but there are hardly any differences between the Windows and Mac version.

For this course you will need Affinity Designer. You can download and install the trial version, but the regular version is verry affordable.
One of the projects will be about designing a website. In this project you will also need RocketCake (available for Windows and Mac). It is free to download, but has also a paid professional edition.

As an introduction for beginners it was very good. It gives you enough knowledge of the tools and enough examples to get started and experiment yourself without feeling lost. I did miss perhaps having a few exercises to test skills, especially towards the end of the course when you're familiar with the tools and the settings. I would have preferred to spend time on exercises than the time the course used showing how things worked in Rocket Cake.
