Ever wonder how a design sketch is made into a prototype?
It all comes down to a Technical Drawing otherwise known as a "Tech-Pack". In this tutorial, Mark Kokavec shows you what you need to include when creating a detailed tech pack using Adobe Illustrator® -the preferred, industry-standard software.
1.5 hours of exclusive content covering everything you need to know and include, so the production factory can execute and build an accurate prototype sample for you. Useful for all designers interested in building complete and comprehensive Tech Packs for their design projects.
