In this Adobe Illustrator tutorial you’ll learn how to create a fully-editable text based banner all within the Appearance Palette. By combining multiple Fills and Strokes along with Shape Effects, Warp Effects, and Drop Shadows which are all built in to Illustrator you will have a easy to edit banner that could fit into all sorts of design projects.
Please note that this is my first official attempt at a full length video tutorial. Originally I thought producing a tutorial video would be faster than taking lots of screen shots and writing out each step in the post but it seems I was WRONG. Anyway, let me know what you think of the new format as I’m on the fence about how to go about the next tutorial, screen shot post or video…
