Zac Lynn’s Sneaker Design with Artboard

Zac Lynn is from Perth, Western Australia, is 16 years old, and absolutely loves sneakers (as you can tell).

Zac got his start designing for a clothing line when he was looking for software to design on. “I stumbled across Artboard, it caught my eye straight away so decided to give it a shot, ” recalls Zac. “The clothing designs went really good, but then I one day was just searching the web and realised some guy wanted a sneaker design done for the Asics Team with over 10000 followers on Instagram, I messaged the man running it, we started talking and I did a design up, he absolutely loved it. This pushed me to do more.

“I started doing my own designs as well as designs that have already been made by Nike, Puma, Reebok, etc etc.. I posted my drawings onto a page called Perth Sneaker Society where each one got amazing feedback and hundreds of likes. This pushed me to do more and eventually opened a website to sell my designs,” he says. This young designer is now gaining the attention of sneaker design manufacturers. “And its all thanks to ARTBOARD!”

Cocktail Slide Charts – A Kickstarter Project Designed Entirely in Artboard

Kickstarter project “Cocktail Slide Charts” mixes sweet design, cool graphics, and at-your-fingertips information in a tight package – designed entirely with Artboard vector drawing software for Mac OS X. Cocktail Slide Charts are cocktail recipes at your fingertips on fun to use and liquid resistant slide charts.


Project developer Bryan Sweeney of Vancouver, WA, describes how he used Artboard’s layered graphics to manage this graphically complex project. “I just thought I’d share with you my Cocktail Slide Charts Kickstarter Project. I created the entire design using Artboard! I was able to create all 3 slide charts with just 2 files. Each of the files has many layers that I turned on and off to export the correct images for each slide chart. It worked out really slick,” wrote Bryan. The design makes use use of Artboard’s gradient fills, layered graphics, advanced text layout, and fully editable vector graphics. “Thanks for an awesome program at a reasonable price!” 

Check out the project on Kickstarter to view all the images that show the front and back of the external case of the slide charts and give you an idea of which slide charts include which recipes. These Cocktail Slide Charts might just be perfect for your next cocktail party.
