What is board design?

Board Design is a Graphic Design Project where you, the student are required to design graphics for your skis, snowboard, surfboard, etc.  Then create a mock company and company name.  Design a logo for the company for your target market.  

In Adobe Illustrator we learn how to use clipping masks, manipulate text and anchors.  We need to play close attention to colours and cutting edge design if we want to be able to sell to our target market.

Students were required to create a face using specific tools on Adobe Illustrator. They learned how to use a clipping mask, for the eyes and different brushes for the eyelashes, eyebrows and in some cases, for the hair. Most importantly they learned how to use the gradient mesh tool to add shading beneath the eyes and mouth. The gradient mesh tool is also used to add a shine to the lips.
