  • Swirls & Florals

    Do you usually design them yourself, or use a set of custom ones instead ? If you do make them yourself, what's your software of choice in doing so ?

    Illustrator. Learn to use the pen tool.
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

      I'm already on it, but it can be a real pain sometimes. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon. How come isn't the polygonal lasso tool included in Illustrator CS 5 ?

        Create one. Use again.
        Create a stroke/brush you can use as a swirl, draw line/shape with pen tool and use stroke (like a thin triangle).

        I think I posted an outline view of one of my Ivy projects a few years back on here…in Crit Pit, maybe. Will try to look for it.

        not sure if that is what you meant. I drew some from scratch, many are repeats and some are repeats and swap with other bit and pieces. A few pieces are shapes I found free but there is so much overlaps.
        Create shapes to reuse.
        some Fonts have shapes like these.

              Yeap, that's what I meant. Yours are really nice.

                Thanks for posting those links. Personally, my swilrs and such leave a bit to be desired, to something else to play with is very cool.

                  I personally avoid them completely like the cliche-laden graphic solution that they have become.

                    When doing window clings you have to specify
                    - white cling or clear cling or frosted cling.
                    - applied inside or outside
                    - any critical colors as Pantone Solid Coated. The inkjet printer...

                    Thank you everybody for replying, I really appreciate it. Many of the jobs I work on have incorrect or conflicting instructions when they come down to our studio, and sometimes this causes me to get a...

                    It's being printed with an inkjet so it will use multiple colors of ink to arrive at the PMS color (or as close as possible).

                    But specifying it as a PMS color will give the printer a target...

                    Thanks Ratkins, that's a good point. I have never been instructed to create a white ink and I only ever use Paper, I guess for some reason I was thinking of Paper as overprinting, when of course it knocks...

                    On a window cling it is possible that the white would be white ink. I'd make sure the production manager understands what you want. It's not 4/C, anyway....
