In this lesson we created a blank A4 canvas in which we created simple shapes using the pen tool and the shape tool. We then filled in the shapes with different colours and strokes sizes. Here are some in depth steps into how we created this document layout:

Step 1: Firstly, we opened Adobe Illustrator.

Step 2: Once Adobe Illustrator had loaded, we then created a New Document and altered the settings to our liking.

Step 3: Once all the settings had been changed, we selected the shape tool and created simple four sided shapes.

Step 4: After I created all the shapes on the page, I then created a Background. I filled in the colour (black) this was so that it stood out and contrasted the light blue rectangles.

This simple design was to convey our understanding of the task and our basic knowledge of the task we were given.
