PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

1. Use Adobe Illustrator

2. Apply fills and strokes

3. Add Text

4. Use drawing tools from the tool panel to design your own icons to use in the diagram. Icons are simple visual

representations of things that are generally more complex. Click here for an example. Depending on what type of

diagram you are planning to create, you will need to design icons on your own to use in your diagram (as in the "thumbs

up" icon from this week’s tutorial).

5. Apply transforming objects (resize, rotate, reflect, shear, duplicate, copy/paste, etc.)

6. Save file as .pdf and submit both .ai and .pdf files
