Spot A Pantone is a Pantone when it's a "spot" color. Make sure your Pantone swatches have the color type "spot color". Even if you color swatch says Pantone XYZ, it doesn't make it a Pantone; if it's not a spot color, it will be considered as a process color (CMYK). Conversion during export If you are 100% certain that your swatches are "spot" then ...

It's not an easy task if you are seeking to be precise. Illustrator won't do this easily. You'd have to manually draw the overall shapes and adjust perspective, size, and value for each element. A mesh in Illustrator fails because it's very difficult to get hard edge conversion areas, in addition, meshes distort the underlying objects based on position of ...

Here is an overview on how I would do it with Inkscape, which should be easily translatable to Illustrator (if not, Inkscape is free). I won’t go into the details, as it is not your desired program.

If you already have this code then you can export the TK applications canvas as EPS and open it in illustrator. All you need to do is call canvas.postscript(). If you want to use TK Simple sample in python 2: #!/usr/bin/python # -*- ...

You can actually do this in Illustrator (as per request). The trick is to make sure that once you use mesh tool you drag the along handles back to 1/3 of the way along the edge otherwise it squeezes the image along*. In addition it can help to keep rotating the are back and forth, for easier selection. Image 1: doing the scruple. What i actually do is ...

hsawires' answer with envelope distort > make with mesh is the best answer, but there are some additional tricks you can use that make it easier to get the "the perspective effect in sharp folds" described (also, four very good answers clearly isn't enough :-D): Prepare your dots, any way you like... the great thing about Envelope Distort is, you can apply ...

As an alternative to @Scott's answer you could use Puppet Warp in Photoshop (Edit → Puppet Warp). If you try this, I would suggest a selecting Mode:Rigid and Density:Fewer Points in the options at the top in order to make the surface less pliable, like in your example. Just add pins and move them around until you achieve the desired displacement. ...

I've designed billboard art (same basic size as your project) for several different vendors, and they mostly ask for 10th (1:10) scale artwork at 300ppi with some kind of pocket allowance. 100% scale is not generally necessary. All vendors are different and may have different requirements, though, so check their respective web sites for upload requirements.

Found an interesting option in this video. Start by creating a grid with the Rectangular Grid or Polar Grid tool. Click Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Mesh Add some perspective with the Effect > 3D > Rotate and adjust to your liking. Move the points from the Mesh grid (not your original grid) until you get the desired effect. Go back and tweak ...

This is possible to do. You just need to know a very rarely used feature*. First turn on transparency grid, so that you can observe the effect. Choose: View → Show Transparency Grid or hit Shift + Ctrl + D. Next make a primitive shape like a box to design the effect on (due to text grouping it is easier to design on something else first). In the ...

Sorry about this, but I have just found the answer to my problem: Given this, I then created my own using Adobe Illustrator (seen in the following image). The outermost circle I used as one unit (in my case, 100 px diameter). Thanks anyway.

One thing I would suggest when using geometric shapes to construct something like this is to turn the grid on and snap to the grid. This saves a lot of time worrying about dimensions and lining things up. A quick remake of the logo: The specific steps aren't important, as these will be different depending on your desired outcome. Just use shapes and the ...

First of all it is really good! But I'll admit it took me awhile to understand what the poster is trying to tell me. It is not immediately obvious that the man and woman are in different countries. I suggest showing them outdoors, with the picture that was on the wall as their backgrounds, respectively. The various elements in the room are distracting. It ...

This is not the fastest method, but it is the easiest to understand for novices. And has these added advantages: You can make unequal parts as well as equal parts. Just input different numbers in the pie chart data dialog. When using Divide you can keep the inner parts if you'd like to use them later on in your design. Get yourself some pie. Then open ...

If you don't care about the dots lining up... You can quickly make something similar to your example in Illustrator using a dashed stroke. To draw the evenly spaced rings easily, I'd use the Polar Grid Tool. Then it's just a matter of setting the Stroke on the rings to dashed with gaps that fit your liking: You can of course fine tune each row to ...

If you do care about the dots lining up... Illustrator's distort and transform effect is perfect for this sort of repeating pattern, but in order to get that exact pattern it will require some tweaking. Start with a dotted line (with 11 dots for your example) Add a Transform Effect via Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform... You'll notice ...

Method 1 The answer is in your question title. Simply create a text box, set the alignment to justify and on each row of text with a single word in it, place a space between every letter except the last one. This will align it just the way you want it. DEMO: I didn't even have to add spaces between the letters of the single words Playing around with ...

After experimenting, I found two decent methods. You can make a path with a thick, round cap/join stroke. If the two circles are the same size then you can Object > Expand... and this will sufficient. If you want each end to have a circle of a different size then you can then use the stroke width tool (Shift+W) to adjust each end. This works okay and ...

1. Draw a gradient. 2. Convert it to a smart object. 3. Apply Filter → Pixelate → Crystallise. 4. Add a Gradient Map adjustment layer on top 5. You can now adjust the Crystallise values, if you’d like. Sure, it’s not using HTML or CSS, but the technique does use a gradient map. Gradient maps are the best. Please note that this ...
