I love working with vector graphics.

Vectors are every designer’s dream as they are scalable and versatile. Vectors also make more valuable assets if you are looking to sell your work on Creative Market and image stocks.

My love affair with flat vectors started when I bought an iPadPro. I started working on Adobe Draw app, where I was mainly constructing an image out of flat shapes. However, I also missed drawing with outlines, which I found wasn’t as precise on the iPad as it was on paper.

I wasn’t doing much line art until my boyfriend showed me the shapes feature in Adobe Capture. I was already using Adobe Capture for capturing colour palettes from life, but not for vectorising shapes. After I tried this feature once, I was hooked.

Creating line illustrations with Adobe Capture is really easy and perfect for beginners. All you need is a mobile phone, pen and paper, and Adobe Illustrator to edit the final design.

In this blog post, I wanted to share how I used Adobe Capture CC to create illustrations for the “Contemporary Family” project.
