This tutorial is specifically made to show you how to use the pen tool in the most efficient way possible in order to reduce the number of points you create, and increase the amount of control you have with fine tune adjustments of those points. There are many different possible ways to use the pen tool inside Illustrator, but the method shown in this video is generally considered to be one of the most technically correct, and therefore the best to use when dealing with very exacting design work like logos and typography. Some quick tips are to always hold shift when creating your points (except in specific circumstances pointed out in this video) to make sure that the arcs on your lines align themselves properly. Basically you always want to pull your curves in a pure vertical or horizontal manner. Also only put pen tool points on the beginning, middle, and end of a curve. Don't place points in a section that is continually curving because it will likely just end up complicating your paths. An example of this is the center point of the "S" shape as demonstrated in this tutorial.

I cover a couple different methods, but the primary one involves using the move command to ensure that all of your repeats match up in a pixel perfect manner. Learning how to create seamlessly repeating patterns inside Adobe Illustrator is especially useful in applications like fabric / textile design as well as web design. They offer a huge amount of flexibility in scaling your designs to look good on almost any sort of small or large scale application that needs the design to cover the entire area. This tutorial shows the pattern being created on a square document, but feel free to use whatever size and aspect ratio of document you want. The same principles apply.

When you're working on a project and everything is feeling good except the fonts you're using, that's when you'll find yourself wishing that you had a bigger font selection to pick from, or knew a few extra spots to grab some sweet free spots. This way you're totally covered! :) Most of the examples linked above are free for commercial use, but always check out that font's specific licensing before using a font on a paid commercial project. Better safe than sorry! Nevertheless the above links will give you hundreds (if not thousands) of free fonts to check out so start looking and find all your favorites. Also feel free to link your favorite spots in the comments below, just don't link any piracy websites or other questionable sources or I'll have to remove your comment.

We can always do our best to do what is right for the people using our designs, but it's very easy to forget some of the most basic things when you don't have a list to double check. That's where Jakob Nielsen's 10 usability heuristics are an excellent resource. Each one of these 10 heuristics serves as a checklist item to ensure that you're doing the right things to make for the best user experience possible. I'll talk over each one of these 10 items breaking down what the descriptions mean, and also showing some real world examples of them in use. Hopefully you find it helpful, and as always, I look forward to seeing your thoughts around the subject in the comments section. :) Personal Website / Store: http://www.mattborchert.com #design #ux #usability

To sum it up as simply as possible Pantone colors are an excellent way to ensure that colors of your designs and illustrations are printed as accurately as possible once they go out to print. When both sides (designer and printer) reference the Pantone colors instead of their screens, it eliminates the issue of screen color variance which can be significant. This video also covers how to pull up and use different Pantone swatches inside Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe InDesign.
