How is this course designed?

Our course has 6 modules, where each module will thoroughly explain the intricacies of one of the concepts in SVG with a wealth of over-the-shoulder examples.

Here are the modules:

Module 1 - Inkscape basics & tools explanation- This is the foundations module. You'll learn how to create SVGfiles, how to embed the codes/images in your HTML websites, how the SVGcoordinate system works and every other thing you need to get started with creating SVG.

Module 2 - Creating various SVG shapes with Inkscape - Rectangles, ellipses, stars, polygon - You'll learn how to create rectangles, circles, ellipses, stars, 3D boxes, spirals andpolygons with a wealth of examples in every single lessons. You'll be creating the shapes along with me in every single module so you understand the concepts better. You'll also learn how to manipulate the shapes in multiple ways to get the best possible result.

Module 3 - Creating styled text, free-hand drawing and brush strokes with Inkscape- In this module, you'll learn how to literally draw text on your SVG images, design them, manipulate them, create brush strokes, calligraphy, free hand drawings (with a cartoon drawing) and so much more.

Module 4 - Grouping, Layers, paths, Bezier curves, lines, node, Rows & Columns etc.- This module handles some very important concepts in SVG - Paths, groups, nodes, Bezier curves.You'll learn how to group multiple objects in Inkscape so they can be manipulated together. Also, you'll learn how to create very complicated graphics with the Bezier curves and node tool.

Module 5 - Styling, gradients, patterns and so much more- In this module, you'll learn how to style the objects you create in multiple ways - using colors, gradients, patterns and so much more. You'll also learn how to use the dropper and Tweak tools

Module 6 - Real world SVG projects- This is a very important module when you take the design aspect of the course into account. In this module, we'll go over the various design attributes and properties offered by SVG. You'll use these properties to create multiple designs for your shapes and elements, designs that'll give your graphics the professional touch they need.


We also cover a lot ofexamples and projects, like:

1. Children's book illustrations - We'll be creating

2. Cartoon animal face project - This project comes in the 3rd module as well. You'll be using circles, ellipses, paths, arcs etc to create a cute 2D animal face.

3. SVGIcons - We'll be creating a bunch of icons (laptop icon, clock icon, phone icon etc) in this project.


Why should you choose our course?

1. We like to bethorough in our teaching. You'll find everything you need to start creating awesome 2D vector graphics with SVG code/syntaxesin this course. You won't have to look anywhere else.

2. We strongly advocatelearning by doing, rather than just listening or reading. Our lectures are filled with awealth of examplesthat explain every concept clearly.

3. If you follow along with our examples in ourover-the-shoulder training, and code the graphics along with us, you'll be confident in embarking into the world of SVGand web graphic design/developmentby the time you finish ourcourse. You'll be able to confidently add this as askill in your resume.

4. We prefercreating fun projects to explain the conceptsand to keep things interesting as well.You'll learn how to apply the concepts you learn in the course in these multipleprojects and examples.
