Let's kickstart this week with a series of gradient exploration by Yuliya Shumilina, a Miami-based designer. I love these! If you remove the factor of the colour palette, I just liked how each pieces create an atmosphere with the shapes, shadows and lighting. Especially the lighting, it's just gradients but it does have a sense of depth across. This can definitely go into abstract art, what do you guys think?
Let's kick-off the week with a case study by Evgeniya Righini-Brand about gradients. Not only that but they are only made in Adobe Illustrator. We are covering her experiment that she did for her Mastering Gradients in Illustrator class on Skillshare. It is such a lovely case study that we dearly love on Abduzeedo, please note that her experiments took from 30 minutes to an hour. It's all possible when you are willing; check it out!
