75 awesome Illustrator tutorials ideas

This is probably the most tutorials aggregated  into one page I’ve seen in some time.

At first glance, most tutorials don’t fit my style or typical clients’ needs but spending some time doing tutorials gives me a chance to do designs that not only fall outside my comfort zone  but more important, expose the “oh, that’s how it’s done.”  Even if I think I know how it’s done it still may offer and shortcut/better way to get the same result or a design element that will fit later designs.

A different slice of the pie

As a designer, I’m always exploring new ways to display information as graphs and charts. I love the trend that is building a swell to design and uses of more visually creative infographics.

There is still a need, and rightly so, for more traditional infographics like the pie chart but that doesn’t mean it has to be the same old slices handed down over the generations. Here are 2 concepts I recently designed. Both will move forward with live copy and branded colors soon. Hope you enjoy and if you discover others you’d like to share than drop me a link. Feel free to share. Thanks!
