Use Illustrator CS2 and Flash to turn your vector illustrations into an animation for the web.
Not everyone likes them, but a web site's intro animation can set the tone and also be a fantastic showcase - especially if the site is a web-based art gallery like Graduart.
Graduart focuses on the work of students, graduates and post-graduates, and Clusta helped develop the brand for the online gallery from day one. Clusta began by designing the logo, followed by the graphical element, which you'll see represented in this tutorial. The brief for this project was simply to be organic, cool and flowing.
This tutorial demonstrates how Clusta combined different programs and techniques to achieve the transformation from static design for print to animation for the web. View the finished animation at www.grad-u-art.com.
