Flat Design Tutorial With Illustrator

      Flat design isn’t new by any means. It’s been around for a while and will continue to be around on social media, poplar sites, and blogs like this one. To me, flat design is like acoustic music. Most everyone likes it, no one seems to hate it, and it’s relatively easy to make. With that said, I bring you this flat design tutorial to give all you seasoned designers a little bit of inspiration, and you beginners a little bit of practice. Join me and follow along in the process in this flat design tutorial as we make a nifty rocket! In this tutorial we’ll be using the pen tool, the shape tool, and learning about how to create shadows and how to reflect objects. Oh yes, we can’t forget about the extremely important “minus front” option. One of the key factors to remember about flat design is not to go overboard with detail. Currently it seems like some artists are close to over-doing their designs and leaving the wonderful, simplistic, world of the flat. So don’t go crazy with gradients and shading and try to stick to the basics while keeping it interesting. Good luck everyone and if you liked the tutorial help me out and give it a share, tell all your friends, your grandma, and your cats! OR you could leave a comment 🙂
