Vectors and Textures is an in depth graphic design workshop that explores some of the various design techniques that are possible when working with typefaces and textures.

The first evening will focus on vectors and type. Attendees will receive a typeface to work with (and take home) that will guide them through the first 3 lessons on designing with type and vectors in Adobe Illustrator. During the workshop, students can design their own wordmarks, custom type and/or drops caps to bring into Adobe Photoshop for the second evening. These lessons include using typefaces, wordmark design tips, splitting and customizing fonts and techniques for styling your type.

The second evening is working with textures and colour. Evening two will consist of bringing the final vector pieces into Adobe Photoshop where students use (and take home) textures to customized their work with a vintage feel and prepare it for print.

Some experience with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop will be required to participate in this workshop. Mac computers and Adobe programs are available to use at the school or you can bring your own laptop to work with. The latest version of Adobe Creative Cloud will be required to get the full experience of the workshop.

This class has been developed by local designer Gordon Montgomery, who is also the instructor for both nights. Gord has a strong background in design and type and will be teaching some of his tried and true methods.
