How To Make a Web 2.0 Style Button
2008-01-21 09:25:00
This new design style called Web 2.0 is becoming very popular these days, and it is actually very easy to do in Illustrator and only requires 3 simple steps. Hope this will help some new designers.First create a rounded rectangle and fill it with either a linear gradient, or a solid fill.(I used a gradient on this example)Next create another rounded rectangle and place it above the first rectangle, apply a black to white gradient with the black above and white below. It should be about half the height and just a little bit smaller in width. Place it almost at the top of the first rectangle, but so there is a border aroung the top and sides.Final step, while both rectangles are selected go to the transparency pallet, and click on "Make Opacity Mask". Heres the finished product:Experiment with different shapes and colors and you could come out with some pretty cool buttons. Heres some examples of the same shape but with different colors:

Easy Abstract Designs In Illustator
2008-01-08 04:50:00
I would like to share a great way to make abstract art, using just one brush of your choice.First draw a simple line segment, arc, whatever. Add the brush stroke to the line and then while the line is still selected go to the menu Object and select Expand Appearance. With all of the expanded segments selected apply the brush stroke to those. Be careful while applying a brush stroke to many lines at once- it could take a while, and if you switch applications while Illustrator is thinking it might lock up. Depending on the brush, its possible to end up with some very great designs.Here is an example of a easily done design: Heres the brush stroke originallyHeres another finished product after expanded and applied brushHeres the brush stroke from above, but before it was expanded and brush was applied.Please subscribe if you want instant notification to new posts (Click on this link)
