Hey guys, welcome back to another video of
Creatnprocess. In this video we will working on a graphic design with very unique style.
If we look at this design, we got the alphabet A. On the top of that, there is a uniquely
designed shape which has been folded over it. To design this, first we will create out the
top element. So use the rectangle tool, give white colour and draw out a vertical rectangle.
Then with the Alt pressed just click and drag to create a duplicate. Place it little upwards,
then duplicate one more with larger thickness and place it little down. In this way we will
duplicating it for multiple number of times and do the placement in random order. After
this select all the shapes and combine them using the unite option from the pathfinder.
Now using the direct selection tool , select all the vertices and click and drag the small
circular icon to make the corner round. For the remaining corners, select individually
and do the same. To give curve in the ends, use the anchor
point tool & click and drag the edge. Use handles to do the curve adjustment.
Once we complete all the corrections, with the Shift pressed rotate the design to 45
degree angle. Then duplicate one more, place it to one end and using the unite option to
combine them. Now lets type out the alphabet using the text
tool. We will use the font Nirmala UI, give stroke thickness of 19 pt and scale the alphabet.
After this go to Object>Expand and click OK to expand the Alphabet. Change the stroke
to outline stroke and unite them. Now lets give a colour from the previous design
using eyedropper. Bring the modified design on the top of alphabet & do the proper placement.
Duplicate one more and place it to other side. We will create a copy of the Alphabet on the
top, so select the Alphabet and use Command/Ctrl + C to copy and Command/Ctrl + F to past to
front. Then arrange it to front. Now give a stroke thickness of 5pt and change
the stroke to fill object using outline Stroke. Then Unite them.
Group the two design. Now select the top Alphabet and the group, then make clipping mask. this
will hide out all the extras shapes. you can double click inside to do some adjustment
with the placement and the size. Select the two pieces and change the colour to Blue.
Now lets add the details. So select the line segment too, set the stroke thickness to 4pt
and change to round cap. Then draw out the line segments of random lengths, Make sure
to press shift key while drawing out the lines to give 45 degree angle.
Once adding all the line segments to the design, double click outside to see the result.
Next we will add few lines of stroke thickness 2pt with round cap. Place it below the top
layer using the short-cut Command/Ctrl + [ . Make sure they are also parallel to our design.
In the same way create few more & place them in an order. Arrange the lower lines below
everything. Give 4pt stroke thickness to few of the lines. Next Add some drop shadow to
the design. Select the blue layer and go to Effect>Stylise>Drop Shadow. Under drop
shadow panel, give 75% opacity, X-Offset -1, Y-offset 0 & blur 0.5pt and click OK. This
will add a nice shadow giving depth to the design. Next select all the lines & give the
shadows with the same values. After that we will create this circular element. So use
the Ellipse tool to create a circle. Give it a nice colour from the colour pallet. Create
a smaller circle on the top & give it a light colour. Now group them and place them in respective
areas. Arrange them to back. We will add few small circular shapes over the empty spaces.
Now we will do some modification with the lines to give a perspective feel. So, select
the line and add a point using the pen tool. Then with anchor point tool , make the line
little curve. Do this to few of the lines to give a natural
look. Then we will use Width tool to play around with the stroke thickness. Make the
stroke narrow at the centre by clicking & dragging inside. This will add a realistic feel. Make
the changes to the other two lines. Now lets add some more depth. We will add
a corner folding effect using the pen tool. So look for all the ends which has been cut
off due to masking. Then using the pen tool draw out these shapes and add little dark
colour. Create out the shapes for all the ends of the design. Once you completed adding
all the folding shapes , choose the relevant colour from the colour pallet.
And finally we will be adding a drop shadow to the alphabet layer. Open the drop shadow
panel & set the opacity to 90%, X – offset -8 pt, Y-offset 1pt and the blur value 2pt,
then click ok. This will add nice drop shadow to enhance
the depth of the overall design. You can work more further by importing the design to photoshop
and doing adjustment with colour and brightness. Adding a cool font to create a Drop cover.
finally we have completed designing the drop effect, we have followed very simple steps.
To create the elements we have used basic shapes and got this unique design.
