Create a new EMOJI that effectively symbolizes an important icon, trend, or event.
The vector document follows file conventions
The EMOJI is created ONLY using shapes (no strokes!)
The EMOJI is grouped and centered to the artboard
Utilize Pathfinder Operations or Shape Modes within the symbols
Pathfinders/ Shape modes allow you to edit drawn shapes into
more complex and interesting compositions. Use these tools to merge
overlapping shapes together, pull apart overlapping shapes where
their paths intersect, and create/edit compound forms.
IF YOU DON’T
THE RED LINE
Gradients are used in the file
A second variant EMOJI is created using all tools
The file follows proper naming/file type conventions

2 AFTER LOGGING IN, CLICK THE GREEN
LINED STEPS WITH THE DEMO ICON (shown
at the right) & YOU WILL BE FORWARDED TO A
LYNDA.COM VIDEO TUTORIAL FOR THAT STEP.
1 Open Illustrator.
2 Create a new file that uses the following conventions:
A. 1 Artboard
B. 7 x 7 (Make sure to set units to inches, not pixels)
C. No Bleed
D. Advanced > RGB, Raster = High (300PPI)
3 Use ONLY shape tools to create a new EMOJI that depicts an icon,
trend, or event of your choice. You might consider broad topics (Ex. Politics, Water Use,
Climate Change), historical events (the moon landing, the fall of Rome), pop culture (drones,
hashtags). The emoji should strive to avoid being overly simplistic or generic. (No Stroke
Attributes, or strokes of any kind in the first version of the Emoji.)
4 While building your symbols, incorporate the use of:
A. Shape tools (Rectangle, Rounded Rectangle, Ellipse, Polygon, Star) (0:25)
B. Shape Modes and Pathfinder operations (0:39)
C. Gradients (linear or radial) (1:35)
5 Select > All, Object > Group. (3:38)
6 Use the Align Panel to center the group horizontally and vertically to the artboard. (0:17)
7 Duplicate the artboard.
8 Create a second version using ALL tools covered so far, this variant should be slightly
different in color, form, and meaning. Example: happy poo emoji vs. angry poo emoji. (This
second Emoji can have strokes of all kinds.)
9 Select paths that have strokes applied to them and expand them (Object> Expand) to create
new paths with only fills (no strokes).
10 Group and Align the second emoji to the second artboard.
11 Save the file as an .AI using the following naming conventions: emoji_lastname.ai.
12 Create two .PNG files of your emojis by going to File> Export. Select .PNG from the
format options and check the box next to “Use Artboards.” In the .PNG Options window,
set the resolution to High (300PPI), the anti-aliasing to “Art Optimized (Supersampling)” and
the Background to “Transparent.”
13 Upload the .AI and BOTH .PNG files associated with this assignment to your sections
dropbox before the beginning of your lab section.
