Chapter 8. Vector Drawing Techniques > Creating vector objects for the backgrou...

Creating vector objects for the background

Many posters are designed to be scalable, either up or down, while retaining a crisp appearance. This is a good use for vector shapes. Next, you’ll create vector shapes with paths, and use masks to control what appears in the poster. Because they’re vectors, the shapes can be scaled in future design revisions without a loss of quality or detail.

Drawing a scalable shape

You’ll begin by creating a white kidney-shaped object for the backdrop of the poster.
