Illustrator type effects help logo designers achieve dynamic typographic treatments through a variety of simple steps. These treatments can stand as logotypes on their own or as type that fits around an illustration or mark to make a complete logo. The tools I teach in this class will give designers an array of techniques that will help them style type in ways that are often used when designing logos. While I believe designers of all levels will pick up some helpful tips, these concepts will especially be helpful for people who would consider themselves unfamiliar with Illustrator or type in general.

Online sessions description:

Please note: Because this online course takes place before and after the change from daylight time to standard time, the first five sessions will start at 11 a.m. PDT, and the final five sessions will start at 11 a.m. PST.

Session 1: Get Started in XML (Overview)—October 5, 2010, 11 a.m. (PDT)
Explore the uses of XML, and how it can drive websites. You’ll learn about the Oxygen development environment and how use it.
Session 2: Begin a Competitive Analysis and Schema for the Course Project—October 12, 2010, 11 a.m. (PDT)
In this session, you’ll be introduced to the course project: using XML to build a professional photography site. You’ll explore a complete competitive analysis that reveals what kinds of content and design work best. You’ll also learn about XML schemas, which can encode the decisions you make about content and design, and discover how to validate an XML file to ensure it conforms to a schema.
Session 3: Create the Photo Information Type—October 19, 2010, 11 a.m. (PDT)
Learn about information types—the key kinds of information you want to deliver. In this session, you’ll study and implement your first info type: photographs. Understand how photos are handled by the competition and then implement a best-practice photo info type in an XML schema and instance. You’ll learn the difference between information types and information items, and how to extract information types from any web page.
Session 4: Transform the Photo Information Type—October 26, 2010, 11 a.m. (PDT)
Learn the process of site creation with XML, using XML transforms with XPath and XSL commands to build web pages automatically. In this session, you’ll find and retrieve raw photo information and turn it into fully formed web pages.
Session 5: Transform the Narrative Information Type—November 2, 2010, 11 a.m. (PDT)
Continue your study of XML transforms by applying them to our second information type: the Narrative. Learn how to use template libraries and the powerful apply templates command to transform complex text and image-rich content into sophisticated layouts.
Session 6: Create Site Navigation—November 9, 2010, 11 a.m. (PST)
Learn the core concepts of information organization that drive all site navigation. You’ll add indexes, cross-references, and sequences to your XML schema, and instance to organize your photos and narratives. Then you’ll learn how to create site navigation from the organized information.
Session 7: Build a Complete, Integrated Site—November 16, 2010, 11 a.m. (PST)
Learn how to use one XML transform to put navigation and content on the same page, and how build a complete site with hundreds or even thousands of pages in a few seconds. This technique lets you easily separate your content and site structure, so you can recreate your site when either one of them changes.
Session 8: Create and Implement Site Hierarchies—November 23, 2010, 11 a.m. (PST)
Learn how to implement a site outline and an outline of photos by location. These hierarchies are sophisticated structures that you can effectively create and use in XML. You’ll discover how hierarchies are modeled in schemas, implemented in instances, and transformed into cascading menus and expanding outlines for site navigation.
Session 9: Put a Professional Polish on the Project Site— December 7, 2010, 11 a.m. (PST)
Learn advanced modeling and transform techniques that allow you to optimize and reuse transforms. These techniques let you build a sophisticated and robust XML site system that’s flexible and maintainable. You’ll learn how to drive CSS and Javascript from your XML system so that advanced features can be added to the site with no manual effort.
Session 10: Create Other Outputs—December 14, 2010, 11 a.m. (PST)
Learn how to use the XML system we created to drive outputs other than a user-facing website. You’ll construct a simple transform that creates an RSS feed, and create other transforms to render a private site. Also, you’ll study other techniques for rendering mobile sites, PDFs, and any other output you need.
