19 Activity 4 Vector graphics In this activity, you will be making a logo using shapes. The finished graphic will be exported in both a vector format and a rasterized format for comparison purposes. 1. In Affinity, create a new file. Set both the Page Width and Page Height to 300 px. 2. Set the fill colour to light blue: RGB (108, 185, 255). Click on the dropdown near the fill colour circle if you are in HSL mode and switch to RGB mode: 3. Use the Ellipse Tool from the Shapes Tools to draw a circle from the top left corner to the bottom right corner, filling nearly the entire size of the canvas. Move your mouse left and right to make a thin oval and a fat oval and release when you are near a circle. 4. Hit Ctrl+Z and this time hold down the Shift Key while drawing your circle, notice that it only allows you to draw a circle (not an oval). Try to fill up most of the canvas with a blue circle 5. While you are drawing the circle, look at the little window showing the size and make it 290 px by 290 px. 6. If your circle is partially over the edge, use the Move Tool to move it fully on the canvas roughly centered (try to have about 5 px of white space around it). 7. Name this Ellipse layer "Big Circle". 8. Hit File > Save As and save this file with the name act_4 in cs1033/lab03 . 9. Select the Crescent Tool in the shapes menu under Ellipse Tool. 10. Draw a crescent moon shape on top of the big circle. 11. While this crescent shape is still selected, change the fill colour to medium blue: RGB (0, 107, 196) 12. Resize the crescent shape to make it similar to the image below

Use the Move Tool to place this circle about 1/3 down from the top and a little right of center horizontally. 16. With this small circle still selected, change the fill colour to purple: RGB (100, 0, 150). 17. Name this layer "Purple Circle Top" 18. Right-click on this layer and select "Duplicate" 19. Now you should see two consecutive layers with the same name and thumbnail. Click on one of them and change the name to "Purple Circle Bottom". 20. Use the Move Tool to move this second purple circle straight down from its original placement (where the first purple circle is) so that it looks roughly

21 symmetrical (it also looks like a very happy face on its side!) 21. Now use the Ellipse Tool to draw one final circle between the two purple circles. Make this circle 60 px by 60 px. 22. With this layer selected, change the fill colour to yellow: RGB (255, 245, 39) 23. Name this layer "Yellow Middle Circle". 24. The overall logo graphic should now look like this: 25. Hit File > Save to save these changes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
