Copy to Practice is a series of tutorial videos demonstrating the technique of recreating a design in order to practice technical skills in Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign.

Copy to Practice in Adobe Illustrator

Hover and Pin that ⤴︎

The video below is the very first in the series, and I hope to add many more soon (this one is a bit long at 20 minutes, I’ll get the next ones down to 10 minutes each).

This Illustrator tutorial shows me recreating my own facebook page cover image and uses the shape tool, gradient tool, type tool, reflection transform, scaling, character palette and more.

Follow along, and then you can download this sample file to do your own Copy to Practice!

Let me know how you go! And if you have any questions at all, just ask in a comment below, or let me know what you would like the next video to be =)
