Tracing a drawing with the pen tool in Illustrator

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 30/06/2008

In this tutorial we"ll trace a scanned drawing with the pen tool in Illustrator. The image will be used as a vector illustration and icon. We will only draw half the part of the figure and flip the other part so that we have a 100% symmetric object/character. By drawing just a half, we’ll save some time. (you can import a sketch to work on). Feel free to post your sketches or drawings to the Flickr group Sketch and Draw.

thank you, Fontshop

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 03/04/2008

I got the calendar 2008 for free today from FontShop! Thanks. Looking for fonts is always a time consuming activity. I often use the FontShop website to look for fonts or to search for a specific font. On the FontShop website you have large search capabilities, you can search by font, by family, by foundry, how a font looks, etc…

Making a folder for my freelance business

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 11/03/2008

I designed a little folder for my freelance business Bene.This folder describes my business and my services. The folder can be printed on a A4 printer (mine is color laser HP Color LaserJet 3500) and that can be easily updated when some content has to be changed. So I decided to make an A4 folder that can be folded in 3 parts. As a freelancer, it is a good idea to have some printed material but instead of ordering a huge amount of business folders that can be easily outdated, I decided to design and print it myself. Of course, you have some limitations in printing.

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 20/02/2008

I took my change and decided to send an entry to the “What is Graphic Design Poster Competition” organized by Veerle Pieters from Veerle’s blog. The competition had some awesome prices for the winners, but i didn’t win unfortunately. But I enjoyed it very much and the results were actually very good and suprising.

I decided to make some drawings on the topic of networking, just some basic sketching. Once colored with some paint, I scan them with a hight resolution (300 dpi) and save them for later use in Photoshop or Illustrator.

Design Inspiration Pool

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 12/01/2008

What is your inspiration? What media do you use for inspiration?
I really like to know what you find inspiring. Sometimes it is difficult to name or to describe your sources of inspiration, but I find it very interesting when someone can describe just in a few words what and why something is interesting to look at.
