Vector art is an image format that uses precise mathematical formulas to create graphics. It can be used for anything from logo designs to illustrations and icons. In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to create vector art in Adobe Illustrator using the basic tools and techniques. We’ll start with a simple shape, and gradually build up complexity until we have a fully customized illustration.

Principles of Vector Art

Vector art can be used for a variety of purposes, such as logos, posters, and illustrations. It is a versatile form of art that can be used in a variety of applications.

We must first learn how to create a basic logo using vector art. The process of creating a logo using vector art is straightforward and simple.

All you need to do is follow these steps:

1. Create a plane – Vector art can be used to create logos that are made up of geometric shapes such as circles and squares. You can create a logo that includes these shapes, but it will not look good if they cover other parts of the logo, so try not to use them too much.

2. Add color – Once you have created your geometric shape in white (or any other color), you can add color around it by clicking on the Add Color button on the main toolbar.

3. Select Layer – You want to select the Layer first so that you can adjust the transparency and other settings of the layer.

4. Add text – Once you have selected your text, open it in another application such as Microsoft Word or InDesign. Then save it as a separate file so that you can later modify and edit it if necessary.

5. Choose Export Vector Art? – After saving your vector art file, choose to export it by clicking on the button labeled Export Vector Art? on the main toolbar.

6. Select destination folder – The next step is to choose where to save your new logo file.

How to Create Vector Art Using Illustrator

Looking to create some vector art for your New Year’s resolutions?

Illustrator is the perfect tool for the job! In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the process of creating a custom logo using Illustrator.

First, we’ll need some basic vector shapes to work with. To get started, open up Illustrator and create a new document. You can select any size or shape you want for your project, but we recommend using a 500x500px size for ease of viewing.

Next, we’ll need to import our artwork. To do this, click on the File menu and select Import > Files. Navigate to the folder where you saved your logo file and select it.

Once it’s imported, you’ll see it listed in the Document Contents panel on the right side of the workspace. Click on it to select it and then click on the Edit button (it’s located in the Tools panel near the top).

Next, we’ll need to adjust some settings in the Edit Document dialog box. We’ll need to set the Width and Height values to 500px so that our logo has enough room to grow (you can modify these values as needed). We’ll also need to set the Aspect Ratio value to preserve our original dimensions, which are usually 16×16 pixels. Click on OK to apply those values when you’re ready.

Creating a Project in Illustrator

If you’re like most people, you probably start thinking about New Year’s resolutions by December. But if you want to make your new year’s goals happen in Illustrator, there are plenty of ways to get started. In this tutorial, we will show you how to create a simple project in Illustrator and add in some New Year themed graphics.

First things first, let’s start with some basic vector shapes. We can use these shapes to create the main text and images for our project. If you don’t have Illustrator installed on your computer, you can download it for free from the Adobe website.

Once you have the program installed, open up a new document and click on the “New button” in the toolbar at the top of the screen. You will now see the “Illustrator CS6: Welcome to Illustrator” screen.

Click on “Next” and select “Objects” from the drop-down menu that appears. You will now see a list of objects that are available in Illustrator. Click on “Rectangle” and then enter 600px x 800 px in the top left corner of the new document. Now click on “OK” to create your rectangle.

Click on the Rectangle Tool from the toolbar at the top of the screen and click on your newly created 600 x 800px rectangle. You will now see a selection window that looks like a square measuring tool graduating from small to large (if you don’t see it, just scroll down on this page). You can now slowly drag your mouse across your ‘blank space’ and once you reach about 2/3rds of the way across edit how big you want it by clicking and dragging two corners together or two sides together.

Once you are done with that, go back to the top of the screen and click on “OK” (I suggest you do this so you don’t alter the size of your rectangle too much). Go to Select > All on your keyboard. Once you are finished go to Object > Group to make sure they stay together.

Now that you have created your basic shape, it is time to add some color and texture! Click on the New Fill… button from the toolbar at the top of the screen and select “Solid Color” from the drop-down menu.

Then choose whatever color you want for your background. I chose an ugly blue with a few dots and lines throughout.

Saving the Project As a PNG File

If you want to keep a copy of your project file for future use, you can save it as a PNG file. To do this:

1. Choose File > Save As (or press Ctrl+S).

2. In the Save As dialog box, click the PNG icon.

3. In the Name field, type a name for your PNG file.

4. In the Location field, specify a location where you want to save your PNG file.

5. Click OK.


In this illustrator tutorial, we are going to create a New Year’s greeting card using the shapes and tools in Illustrator. This particular project is simple but effective, and it can be easily customized for your own needs or for giving as a gift. So make sure to let us know how you go — we would love to hear from you!
