Description

We all like vectors. But we also love hand-drawn stuff. And this class teaches you how to mash those 2 things together with the Play-Doh technique.

The Play-Doh technique allows you to work with vectors much like you would with Play-Doh, which gives your vector work an authentic hand-made feel, without losing the things that make vectors vector!

This short and fun class covers the basics of the Play-Doh technique, as well as plenty of examples, and secret hints and tips. You don’t need to be an ace designer or illustrator. I show you shortcuts, show you my own work, and explain things simply and slowly.

All you need to take this class is an appreciation of the hand-made, as well as Adobe Illustrator (which you can get a 30 day free trial of). You don’t need much experience in Adobe Illustrator at all!

By the end of this class you’ll be able to create authentic and natural vector work – ready for websites, branding, and print work! You’ll be able to add it to your existing skill set and start having fun right away.

This class is project based and you are encouraged to work on your own project after each video.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for designers and illustrators looking to learn a new technique
  • Only slight prior knowledge of Adobe Illustrator is required
  • If you like a hand-drawn style and want to get into vector design and artwork sign up for the class

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.
