Description

In this class we’re going to learn how to create Terrazzo artwork in Adobe Illustrator – in vector, with awesome colours and innovative shapes.

Besides being an awesome Venetian look for floors and walls, the trendy Terrazzo style can be seen in a lot of creative sectors – fashion, textile, illustration, graphic design, and web design.

The class covers the entire Terrazzo process and we'll cover tile creation, color palettes, deliberate imperfection, pattern making, semi-automatic workflows, and tips on presenting your work. There are countless tips and tricks shown that you’ll be able to use on non-Terrazzo projects as well.

Terrazzo is messy, it’s awesome, and I think you’ll have a lot of fun creating your own.

Who is the target audience?
  • Illustrators and designers looking to generate random patterns, textures and tiled artworks
  • Take this course if you’d like to learn more about Adobe Illustrator’s tools and techniques (that aren’t commonly taught). Don’t take this course if you’re an Adobe Illustrator Master or create a lot of generative art.

Product Designer

Rich's title is Product Designer but he's more of a jack-of-all-trades / generalist / unicorn. He designs, animates and codes. He's studied multimedia design and graphic design, and is a self-taught programmer. He's freelanced, worked for agencies and startups, and now runs Studio Armstrong, an Amsterdam-based creation company, with his wife. He also doodles all the time, has super ginger-powers and can touch his nose with his tongue!

He spends most of his working day researching and experimenting, much like his hero, Lucius Fox, does. Rich likes to think he's a minimalist, but he's fooling himself – he's as messy and unorganised as the any other creative genius.

Rich has been teaching online classes since 2015 – and he likes it a lot :) He's since created the weirdly named Tap Tap Kaboom brand that showcases his experiments, designs and classes.
