Description

In this Illustrator tutorial, we will focus on creating packaging for a fictional beverage. We'll get started by building a few elements already sketched inside Illustrator, which will be used for our package design. As we assemble these elements into our design, we'll learn things like how we can create seamless patterns, how we can utilize type on paths, and how we can convert photographic texture into vector form for use in our design. Throughout this course, we will create two different labels, a product mockup, as well as a drink carrier for our fictional beverage. After completing this course, you will be familiar with several tools and techniques that are utilized by graphic design professionals when creating package designs. Software required: Illustrator CS6.
