Blend and Mask Yourself a Great Poster

2009 at 11.59 am posted by Veerle Pieters

It is weekend so the ideal time to have some extra fun in Illustrator and learn something along the way. I’ve talked about writing a tutorial for Vectortuts+ a few days ago. The article has now been published as part of the Graphic Design week that was going on.

Final poster

Blend and Mask Yourself a Great Poster

In this tutorial, we'll be creating a poster with a strong geometric central design, which utilizes flowing blends, masks shapes, and subtle gradients, to create a sophisticated final piece. Learn each detailed step in creating this poster by following the 30 steps. Let's get started!

VectorTuts is awesome. i have recently just started getting deep into illustrator and have been using the website for tips and tricks to learn on top of my “Classroom in a Book” sessions and just messing about on my own. you can see the results on at my GRAFIXonmyDESIGN blog.

Wow, looks awesome.

I’d love to see some sort of vector tennis, just like Photoshop tennis but for folk who feel right at home in Illustrator.

This poster design would be a perfect match starter.

Very cool!
