Following the success of Digital Illustration and Secrets of Digital Illustration, Vector Graphics and Illustration turns the spotlight on this instantly recognizable and popular illustrative technique. Like its predecessors, this book is a highly illustrated but practical “how to” manual that looks at the creative possibilities offered by software such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW. It makes a feature of the exemplary illustration work being created around the world, and especially in countries with an emerging graphic design scene, including Malaysia, Brazil, Singapore, and India.
Vector Graphics and Illustration explores the advantages of vector work, and how vector graphics are especially useful in the creation of minimal but high-impact work, such as information graphics, logo designs, characters, technical drawings, graphic novels, magazine illustrations, and graphics for clothing. This book taps into a vibrant and distinctive creative area that is under-represented outside software manuals and specialist magazines.
