Yes But being creative or artistic does not necessarily mean "ability to draw". Creativity is a must-have. A good designer needs to be able to imagine/see information in various constructs, envision color usage, often determine imagery to be used. All this takes creative thinking. While you generally don't have to be creative enough to come up with earth-...

First, add objects for intermediate steps. If you examine your sample it blends from medium > small > large > small > medium. There are 5 stages to that blend. So you need 5 objects. Here I've shown the intermediate steps as red circles. And then created the blend. Remember stacking order matters. Blend stack, by default, from the top object to the bottom ...

Creative, yes. Almost any job in the world needs some kind of creative input. Artistic, not necessarily. Depends on what you're designing and what time you have available. You can't be artistic in 5 minutes. There's many designers out there that are creative, but not artistic. You could, in a way, say that illustrators generally tend to be more artistic ...

What you see in that image can easily be achieved with a 2D app like Inkscape, but if you really need to learn 3D, try Blender or Sketchup all of which are good, free options.

This is done through a Javascript API: the styles are saved in a JSON structure and then applied when the map is loaded in your website. You can find the full documentation here. But Google also offers a Wizard which lets you control almost all of the ...

Yes and no, and this answer is going to be wildly unpopular but bear with me. I feel that its really the other way around*. It all depends on what you mean by creative. If you would have asked me this question 5 years ago I would have answered no. Today i have to sadly answer yes but not because of the reason most people think but basically having worked in ...

You can't get that with the Drop Shadow effect, but instead: Select your original T shape Do an offset via Object → Path → Offset Path Create a copy of the offset shape and ALT+SHIFT+Drag diagonally Create an Object → Blend between these 2 offset shapes with 'Specified Distance' set to 0

It's all really personal preference and design aesthetic.. there are no rules. I'd use the logo as the basis for spacing... The logo is used to determine the hight of the hashtag. Then the size of the hashtag is rotated 90° to determine position of the text. This would be my preferred configuration. Hashtags do not have to be "big". If it's readable, it'...

Every designer has his/her own methods, but generally yes I'd say go with whatever looks good. I personally don't believe in rules much and design things to just look well spaced out, unless there's a very specific branding guidelines document to follow. In your particular case, it looks like there's plenty of space at the top of the banner, so why not ...
