Being a Vector Graphic Designer

by in Graphic Design on


Vector graphics illustrations and vector artwork have become increasingly popular with a lot of artists and designers. Vector design and vector pattern are used to create technical drawings, shapes, logos and even animations. According to Wikipedia“Vector graphics is the use of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, and shapes or polygons—all of which are based on mathematical expressions—to represent images in computer graphics. Vector graphics are based on vectors (also called paths), which lead through locations called control points or nodes. Each of these points has a definite position on the x and y axes of the work plane and determines the direction of the path; further, each path may be assigned a stroke color, shape, thickness, and fill”. Vector graphics are also known as raster graphics. The main advantage of this graphics solution is that it can be modified to meet any design requirements be it poster designs, animations, flyers, packaging or banners etc.

• Create Inspiring Vector Pieces

Vector art graphics vary in style and is used commonly for planar (2D) graphic objects.Vector graphics are inspiring and one can create intricate designs based on this geographic art.There are many vector images tools are there, but Adobe’s Illustrator, Indesign and Photoshop provides you best platform for creating cool vector illustrations.

Vector images may vary based on the purpose and surface it be depicted on. The same vector art can be used on a variety of surfaces which includes t-shirts, walls, posters, and canvas or shopping bags.Simple and organic vector art images/illustrations communicate effectively, and is a great way to add emphasis to your communique.With the help of curves, strokes and fills one can add more natural look the vector shapes and illustration artworks.Adding texture helps give more dimension and perspective to vector art graphics.Yet another vector aspect is manipulating line works and gradients are a great way to bring an unusual sense of movement to your vector graphics.The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has released a set of standards for standard for vector graphics, which is collectively known as Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG).Simple shapes and gradients that are easy to apply to make you create brilliant character illustrations.

Using the basic shapes and adjusting depth, colour, contrast and texture one can create an eye-catching vector illustration.What you need is awareness of these features and pragmatism to apply those to vector art depending on the scenarios.

• Where Vector Graphics Fit-in?

A plethora of possibilities are with vector images, which include:
•    A bitmap image can be converted into a vector image
•    Converting an intricately hand-drawn sketch into a beautiful vector illustration.
•    For creating a vector glitter text art effect.
•    Depicting a stunning vector landscape environment.
•    Transforming a photograph to a vector image.
•    Portraying an illustrated self-portrait in a geometric style.
•    To add some cool vector art effect to photographs.

These are few examples where vector images best fit your purposes. Our vector graphic designers create you perfectly matching and meaningful vector illustrations.
