Illustrator and My Thoughts

As I finished the final draft for my logo redesign, I reflected on my experience using Illustrator. I am still such a novice at this program, but I like to think that my knowledge expanded after trial and tribulation of experimenting with the program. My design was officially improved by figuring out how to change the colors, shapes, and formation. But I also had to try and increase the creativity of my logo. I think that it will still take me more time in order to become more organic with the program in order to make more original and creative designs. This was definitely a greater “starter” project, because of how little experience I had with Illustrator. I was proud at my ability to download and incorporate a new font with the program, I think that that helps add personality to specific designs. What makes me least proud, is the border or rectangle around the logo. I wish that I had taken more time to make a fancier or more intricate design. I was surprised about how intricate the program itself is and how much time it takes to practice your skills and to improve your capabilities. I know from my friend’s experience, that it took her months to be fully capable with the program. Technology has helped me with this program and my knowledge of Illustrator by watching countless YouTube instructional videos and lots and lots of practice.
