[25.08.2017] ILLUSTRATOR & DIGITAL FABRICATION INTENSIVE WORKSHOP - FROM 11-23 SEPTEMBER 2017 (6 SESSIONS OVER 2 WEEKS)

***Workshop in English only***

When: September 11 to September 23 (2 weeks), 3 sessions/week (Mon & Wed from 6pm to 9pm / Sat from 10am to 4pm)
Where: Xinfab - Kangding East Rd, Lane 45, Building no.5, Room 102, Jing'an District
Price: Special inauguration price 2000 RMB (Wechat 2010 RMB)

You have asked for it, now here it is!

After many people who joined our intro workshops asked for a more in-depth, intensive course on Illustrator, our favorite and most talented designer Pamela Martello is going to take you through this amazing tool from start to finish. She'll share with you her knowledge and tricks of 9 years of experience with Illustrator.

In this intensive workshop, you will start by getting familiarized with Illustrator, gradually move on to learning how to use its main tools and features, and then get a 2-dimensional design of your own to the finish line. In addition to Illustrator, you will also learn how to integrate your newly acquired vector design skills with Xinfab’s laser cutter and bring an object to life. Finally, if time and everybody’s pace allows, we’ll also give you an introduction to Photoshop. No previous knowledge is required!

Adobe Illustrator is the design industry’s standard for creating vector graphics. With it, you can design posters, banners, logos, websites – in sum, you can illustrate anything you want! By combining it with the laser cutter, you can also create 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional objects – the only limit is your imagination!

Your dedication is key. We invite you to practice after the lessons with some homework and maximize your takeaway from the course.

Price includes:
// One month Xinfab Membership for you to DIY! (180 RMB worth of credits for machine usage within a month); Material for prototyping

Things you should bring:
// Your laptop and charger
// Mouse (this workshop can’t be followed without a mouse)
// Install Illustrator CC in your laptop (http://www.adobe.com/illustrator)
// *Optional: Install Adobe Photoshop
// Your passion, curiosity, and questions


Some sample images of what you'll learn to do (Pamela made these in only a few hours!)

ABOUT THE TEACHERS

Pamela Martello is a Mexican jewelry designer who has been creating original and stylish 3D and 2D designs for the past 9 years. Jewelry is Pamela's true love, but she has a decade-long love affair with graphic design and Illustrator, with which she complements her jewelry creations.

Pamela is a graduate from the European Institute of Design (IED) in Rome, Italy. She entered the IED through the big door, by winning a design competition and being awarded a scholarship. Upon graduating in jewelry design, Pamela took a graphic design specialization, also at the IED. In her career, Pamela has won multiple jewelry and graphic design awards, including an artwork design award for American Express. Pamela has been creating jewelry in Shanghai for the past 4 years.

Last year, Pamela discovered Xinfab and immediately joined our core team as a volunteer. She loves the laser and the 3D printers and is always experimenting in other fields related to design, where she finds inspiration for her creations. She has also taught many workshops with us. For Pamela, travelling, exploring, and living in different places offers a constant stream of stimulus for new ideas (plus a little fantasy too).

Jade Young is a Brazilian communicator and Xinfab's space manager. Before joining Xinfab, Jade worked in communication for the United Nations (International Labour Organization) and the International Committee of the Red Cross, in Geneva, Switzerland. She created posters and graphics for both organizations during her experience with them. She then complemented her education and experience in International Relations with a Master's in Advertising Design and Communication at the Barcelona School of Design and Engineering, in Barcelona, Spain.

While humanitarian values and non-profit philosophy are her credo, creating is her passion. Jade has loved to draw from a very early age and has been playing with the Adobe suite for over a decade. She has also been into tech since she got her first computer way back in 1998 and has been playing with web coding ever since.

***Jade will assist Pamela during the workhsop and will also make sure nobody accidentaly burns down the lab in the process! ;)
