Mastering Gradients in Illustrator

Level up your gradient skills with our special tips, tricks & techniques ranging from beginner to advanced Illustrator levels!

I’m Evgeniya Righini-Brand, and with this class I invite you to master gradients in Adobe Illustrator. Whether you’re going for a vibrant and dramatic look, or something more subtle and dreamy, something minimalistic or elaborate and experimental, gradients create a sense of depth, allowing you to change the feel of any design, object and environment!

This class is suitable for anyone who loves gradients, and I’ll walk you through everything you need to know to make awesome gradient-based designs suitable for both digital and print projects.

In this class I’ll share:

  • how to choose the right colours and avoid murky gradients and colour banding;
  • how to make the most out of the range of the Illustrator tools for creating gradients;
  • how to combine multiple gradients within one object and work with gradients covering multiple objects;
  • how to apply gradients to editable text;
  • how to use gradients with strokes;
  • how to create and use gradient brushes;
  • how to texture gradients to make them look exciting and prepare them for print;
  • how to create gradient presets and graphic styles to improve your workflow;
  • how to export your gradient designs for print and digital use.

Graphic Design & Photography

We are Dominic & Evgeniya Righini-Brand, a creative couple specialising in graphic design and photography. We have started back in 2008 with a strong focus on branding and print design, but lately our focus has shifted to personal projects, visual experimentation and teaching on Skillshare. Our nomadic studio Attitude Creative has travelled with us from Moscow to the depth of Germany and back to the UK. Having studied and then taught at university for 5 years we are constantly learning ourselves: each day and each task bring us new knowledge, skills and experience and we are thrilled to share them with you so you could create effective and exciting visual design! Each class we produce is fuelled by our hunger to experiment and explore creative potential of both digital and physical media. To see what we are up to day to day be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram & Dribbble, and check out our projects on Behance. So far we have produced 24 classes covering a range of subjects and techniques including Illustrator, Photoshop, Typography, Printmaking, Illustration, Experimental Image-Making and Photography: you can find them all below in subject-based sections, and it's just the beginning!;)
