symbol sketching.

symbol sketching.

I’m taking a class at Skillshare right now — an open skills teaching environment. The one I’m doing happens to be free, but most classes are just 20 bucks or so. Lots of design stuff, but also cooking, business and other sorts of classes as well.

Anyway, my class is called ‘Illustrate Your Day: An Intro to Symbol Design’ and the project we’re working on is a set of symbols that tells the story of your daily routine.

I was doing some concept sketches last night and… symbol design is pretty tricky! I’ll keep you updated as I progress.

Having a ton of fun building this course in Captivate.

And I was totally correct, building in Illustrator and then re-creating in Captivate is working a lot faster for me. It took me only two hours this morning to build a new theme and create the first four screens, interactions and all. Importing custom assets is super easy when you’ve already determined your layout and final dimensions.
