Implied Line

Description:

Technique:

  1. Using Illustrator, center a 6 × 6 in square on a letter-sized (8½ × 11") page.
  2. Use guides to help lay out the design, rather than attempting it ‘freehand’.
  3. An excellent way to organize this project is to use Illustrator’s layers, which will allow seperation of elements.
