Case Based Critical Thinking

Mark’s design team has taken on a number of projects that involve display text and gradients. Mark considers typography to be a fine art, and he thinks that gradients are often a very effective component of good Illustrator design, so he is excited to take this opportunity to put his team through typography and gradient boot camp.
 

 20. 

The specification for all body copy in a series of ten related fliers - all designed in Illustrator -   calls for 11pt type with 12.5pts leading and -10 tracking. One of the designers flows body copy text into the main text box on flier number five, formats it, then realizes that one paragraph is overflowing the text box. He tells Mark how he solved the problem, and Mark tells him that, of all the choices he had for fitting the text, he chose the worst option in terms of the overall design of the total project of ten fliers. The designer’s bad choice was to ________.
a.
increase the tracking
c.
reduce the point size of the body copy
b.
reduce the overall leading
 

 21. 

One project that the team is working on involves display type that will appear very large on a billboard. Mark tells the team that, of all the ways to modify text in Illustrator, ____________ is the most essential for perfecting large display type.
a.
horizontal/vertical scaling
c.
baseline shift
b.
kerning
d.
tracking
 

 22. 

One of Mark’s designers is having difficulty with tracking and kerning - specifically, when to use tracking and when to use kerning. Mark asks four other designers to provide an analogy for tracking and kerning. He is pleased with all four analogies, but he says that the best of the four analogies is that tracking is to kerning as ________.
a.
brushing is to flossing
c.
hugging is to pinching
b.
book ends are to books
d.
group is to individual
 

 23. 

Mark knows that his designers aren’t programmers, but he feels it’s important that a designer has some amount of understanding of how a program works. He asks his team that, working in Illustrator, if they wanted to create a linear gradient but couldn’t use any of the  gradient tools, they could create the gradient with which of the following ________.
a.
filled rectangles
c.
both a and b
b.
stroked lines
 

 24. 

Mark considers gradients to be an important design component for many types of Illustrator artwork. He tells his team that gradients can be ________.
a.
used to fill multiple objects simultaneously
c.
radial or linear
b.
made of multiple colors
d.
all of the above
 

 25. 

Which of the following is the best comparison to a radial gradient?
a.
a circle
b.

c.
a chain of interlocked circles
d.
a small circle within a big circle
 

 26. 

In a radial gradient, the starting color appears where?
a.
at the center of the gradient
b.
halfway between the center and the edge of the gradient
c.
at the outside edge of the gradient
d.
it depends on how the Gradient tool is applied
 

 27. 

A linear gradient can be positioned from left to right, top to bottom, or on any angle.
 

 28. 

Once text is flowed into an object, you can no longer manipulate the object as you would have previously.
 

 29. 

An imported Swatches panel is editable.
 

 30. 

By default, guides in Illustrator are blue; you cannot change their color.
 

 31. 

Hiding objects is one way of making it easier to select objects on the artboard.
 

 32. 

The Hide Selection command and the Show All command are both on the ____________________ menu.
 

 

 33. 

When text is flowed on a path, which feature of the Character panel allows you to increase or decrease the distance of the text from the path?
a.
baseline shift
b.
vertical scale
c.
the Offset Path command
d.
none of the above
 

 34. 

Text in Illustrator can never be positioned upside down.
 

 35. 

When you click the Gradient tool, the gradient control bar appears in the object itself.
 

 36. 

Even after text is converted to outlines, you can still change the typeface.
 

 37. 

When you click the Show All command, all the hidden objects are selected when they are revealed.
 

 38. 

You can define the angle of a radial gradient in the Gradient panel.
 

 39. 

When you float your cursor near the endpoint of the gradient control bar, the ____ icon appears.

copy

flip

Type
c.
Units & Undo
d.
Guides & Grid

 42. 

In the above figure, a 50% vertical scale has been applied to the text. This means that the text was shorter before the scale was applied.
 

 43. 

The command to show the Character panel is on the ____________________ menu.
 

 

 44. 

The midpoint, by definition, must be positioned evenly between the starting and ending colors of a gradient.
 

 45. 

When locked objects are unlocked, they are all selected.
 

 46. 

The Stroke panel is where you move sliders to mix new colors for fills, strokes, and gradients.
 

 47. 

Text flowed on a curved line will often require kerning, especially when it is set at a large point size.
 

 48. 

The midpoint is identified on the gradient slider by a triangle.
 

 49.
