Designing Basics | Clipping Mask with Text in AI

In this super easy step by step show you how to use the Clipping Mask function with text so you can add an image background. I love this effect because it is such an easy, effective way to express your style, keep a consistent brand and make yourself stand out.

In a future post I will share how the Clipping Mask function works great for cropping images with shapes and how you can use it to fit images in a design layout. Perfect for creating social media posts, blog post headers, shop announcements and website headers.

Designing Basics - Knock Out Banner in AI

I get quite a few emails asking about design basics and using your images in Illustrator and Photoshop so I thought I would create a web series of 'Designing Basics' in easy to follow steps to answer your questions and help you create fabulous graphics.

For my big Christmas Sale in December I created a graphic that prompted a lot of you to reach out and ask how I did it so today's 'Design Basics' will be on creating a knock out using text.

As with most things, there is more then one way to create something and for the purpose of teaching I won't be using keyboard short cuts or multi layered files.  Keeping to the basics, I will break it down into steps that you can follow, do yourself and refer back to as often as you need.

I would love to see what you have created using this tutorial! If you'd like to share, post an image of what you have created below and a link it to your website so we can get to know you better!
