How to Design BUSINESS CARDS with Illustrator CC 2019
If I had to pick one feature that most of our students are struggling with it would definitely be Masking. This is a technique even experienced designers are not utilising enough in Adobe applications, however this is a crucial element of working non-destructively or in other words professionally. So I decided that I will cover everything you need to know about masking in Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign in a mini series.
BECOME OUR MEMBER:
In this first video we will start with an Illustrator tutorial and I will show you all there is to know about the Opacity Masks and Clipping Masks we also learn the Draw Inside feature.
By the end of this video, you will learn how to make the most out of the Opacity Mask and Clipping Mask in Illustrator to create beautiful illustrations.
See the whole process step by step and discover some hidden gems in this Adobe Illustrator tutorial.
