Photoshop and Illustrator for Fashion and Textile Design : A Quick Guide (Paperback) (Joanne Sherrow)
about this item
This succinct, step-by-step introduction to vector and raster-based software is the new go-to for fashion and textile design students. Demonstrating the essentials of how to use this industry standard software as a design tool, Sherrow takes a playful right-brained approach to each technique with clear instructions and easy to understand visuals. Topics build from the basics of digital design, how to create repeat pattern designs, colorways, yarn-dye patterns to using templates and croquis, drawing garment details and creating a concept board. Beginning students will learn to create a line of textile designs in a variety of color ways, to develop a fashion collection presentation including an inspiration board, color story, flat sketches, and fashion illustrations, and to understand the basis of, the benefits of, and the differences between both raster and vector based computer programs.
Up to date with the most current Adobe® Creative Suite 6 (CS6) and Creative Cloud (CC) releases, this concise text brings together the best of Photoshop® and Illustrator® with coverage of fashion design and textile design into one handy guide.
