Using Adobe Illustrator for the First Time

For my Visual Journalism class (JOU3109C) at the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications, our first project for the course was a to create scalable images in Adobe Illustrator — a software that I wasn’t familiar with until now. We had to select a broad topic to which we could devote an entire semester’s portfolio to and here is the result for the first project: a magazine spread devoted to modern day feminism and women’s health.

Out of the three items in the project, I liked the way my magazine spread turned out the most, because at that point I was most familiar with how to work inDesign after much trial and error.

I really enjoyed the process of learning and getting familiar with the intuitive interface of Adobe Illustrator and can’t wait to make more projects with it.
