After this solid grounding, the book breaks out into open waters by trying out more complex effects, taking an in-depth look at paths and the varying way in which objects can be created.

After the creativity, readers are given all the information they need to prepare their work for print or web. The end result will be enough solid knowledge to negotiate the print and electronic design world with ease, while packing a potent punch with some swift Illustrator moves.
