Illustrator: Create a Custom Designed Water Bottle

Use Adobe Illustrator to create personalized vector artwork, which you will use to create a custom, laser-engraved Hydroflask water bottle. Learn the fundamentals of Illustrator: how to create artwork, use color, trace images, and incorporate text. Once your vector art is created, you will learn how to use it in the physical world: scaling and outputting your file for use in print, on the web, or in this case, on a water bottle! Students should be proficient in a PC environment. No Illustrator experience required.
