One of the best tutorials on YouTube. I’m new to Illustrator and your tutorial helped me understand these tools better and that golden ratio technique is awesome. I’m going to use it in designing my logo. Cheers!
Is there anything wrong with my pre settings??? When i draw the square and the circle, the circle is always slightly bigger. like 0,5px …. it messes up everything that follows on that. please help me, people.
Hi, great tutorial but I've got one niggle, on CS 5.5 the object is greyed out and unusable in Object/Expand. I assume it's an essential step when resizing cos without that step it's out by a couple of pixels, any hints anyone? (other than getting the latest Illustrator 🙂 )
I had a prob in AI CC 2018 (mac) where the smart guides don't show. I toggled command-U and that got them working again, in case there's anyone out there reading this who's experiencing the same bug. Great tutorials!
This is soooo cool. I just found your page. I am a 20 year long construction worker and site developer with a recent shattered ankle and broken back. I begin my second quarter tomorrow as a graphic designer with very little computer experience but tons of experience with sacred geometry. I want my designs to have more meaning and designed like nature. The Golden Ratio is crucial. Love the vid.
Guys, to see the shaper tool like he used. Go on your menu on top and hover to window > toolbars > and click "advanced". This should display a lot of toolbars on your left sidebar. I'm using illustrator CC so it might be different way on other versions but you get the idea. Hope this helps!
Awesome tutorial! You are the real MVP! Only thing.. i had a hard time doing it on my own, because on AI (CC) after i hit EXPAND, the only options is FILL and STROKE. Option OBJECT is shaded and AI doesn't let me to mark it. Anyone knows solution?
Great video! I appreciate the balance you strike in your explanations between simple enough to understand but still highly informative. There are definitely aspects of this tutorial that I can see myself incorporating into my own work. Well done sir! 👌
I just want to know Something, what's the difference between .ai and .ait? (adobe illustrator and Adobe Illustrator Template ). I can open both of them in Illustrator, and both of them show the same result. (I saved the golden ration project as .ai and .ait and both seem to work the same, I couldn't see the difference) Any Clarification guys?
Loved it. Heard of the golden ratio and Fibonacci sequence, but had no idea how to put them to practical use. Additionally, not that great at math, and having knowledge of the math feature as well as the correct numbers, wow! Made my day. Now, seven years later, just need to get the courage to believe I can still create. Thank you. I'll be watching this several times.
Thanks for the video, one of the best about the topic.
''Smart guides are turned on'' – i only understood it at the end of the video because i thought you were saying ''smart guys are turned on by smooth math, connects, e.t.c''. Basically was laughing about nothing all through the video – lol!
