This was today’s assignment for my webdesign class. we learned how to use different shapes to create one image. I again used adobe illustrator for this assignment. the first thing i always do is click file>new and make sure my document is set up for the web, than i turned on the grid to make it easier to line up the objects. Next i made a circle using the ellipse tool, duplicated the shape by using the selection tool and holding down the ALT key.. Than i made a third circle using copy and paste, and moved the circles together to make a clover type shape. next i used the rectangle tool to draw a long thin rectangle, and again i used the same tool to make two smaller rectangles forming the key shape. the next step was to make all the shapes one.. i used the pathfinder panel to do this and clicked unite. next i punched three holes in the top part of the key using the pathfinder panel, i just selected the hole and clicked extract. the last step was to customize … i made my key a little bigger, and tilted it a bit, than i used pink as the fill color and black as the stroke color. i used the 3d effect to make it more appealing.. next i found a font on fontsqurril.com and downloaded it to my computer.
The font i used on this assignment was blackcasper…i changed the size, color, and placement of my text, than i was finished ! saved it for the web and uploaded it to my blog!!:)
