In today’s tutorial, I am going to show you how to create Infographic Template in Gravit Designer.
For starters you will learn how to slice a simple circle using Appearance Panel, then combine several parts into one big path and apply an angular gradient to it.
Moving on you will create a plate and place icons and text on it to define neccesery components of the business or studying process, or whatever you want to create Infographic for.
Step 1. New Document in Gravit Designer
Create a 1500x1200px New Document.
Step 2. Background
Cover an entire artboard with the rectangle using Rectangle Tool. Aplly a linear gradient with the
#FFFFFC as the color at the top left and
#FFF5DF as the color at the bottom-right.
Step 3. Draw a Seamless Scale
Select the Ellipse Tool (E) and, holding Shift, drag to create a perfect circle that has a diameter of 332px.
Delete the fill and add a default border to the circle.
Open to the Transform Menu by clicking a large pink (if you use a default “Gravish Theme”) button. In opened panel set the X Move value to 332px and Number of Copies to 2.
Now, you have three equaly-distributed circles that you should slice using Angle fields on the Appearance Panel.
For the left most circle set the 90o as the value of first Angle. All the shapes should be opened.
For the circle in the middle set the 0o in the second field.
For the last circle set 0o as the value of the first Angle.
Rotate the first circle at the angle of the -90o to create a connection end-to-end with all of the circles.
Adjustments to the sectors
Now, you have three sectors, that form a seamless line. Next step is to beef it up a bit. Select all segments and set the Stroke Weight to 60px.
Navigate to the advanced border options (the icon is near the Trash Can) on the Border Panel. Set the type of Endings to the Butt to get rid of the protrusions where the circles connect with each other.
Step 4. Plates
Create a circle with the diameter of 292px using the Ellipse Tool.
Go to the Fill Color menu and apply the Linear Gradient with the
#FFF as the color at the top-left and
#EAEAEA as the color at the bottom right.
Create a duplicate of the circle using Clone Command (
Ctrl/Cmd+Shift+D ). With the duplicate selected navigate to the Modify>Path>Expand/Shrink.
In the opened dialog box, place a cursor into the field and type -4px. Click Ok to proceed operation.
With the small copy of the circle is still selected, return to the Linear Gradient and click to the Double Arrow icon to reverse a direction of this gradient.
Group both circles using the shortcut
Make a couple of duplicates of the plate and arrange them to fill the “gaps” into the seamless line.
Step 5. Convert to Seampless Path
Select all the sectors and navigate to the Modify>Path>Join Path or use the shortcut
It create one path from the three shapes. Keep in mind, that this is a distructive transformation. Read more about this topic in my Boolean Shape Operators post.
Step 6. Angular Gradient
Navigate to the fill dialog menu and apply an Angular gradient. Set the values for the Gradient Stops as shown on the picture below.
Step 7. Inner shadow
Keep selected the path and navigate to the Effects>Inner Shadow. Set these values into the Inner Shadow dialog box:
Apply second Inner Shadow Effect with these parameters
Step 8. Drop shadow
Selecting Plates, navigate to the Effect>Drop Shadow and apply Drop Shadow with these settings:
You are done! You’ve created an amazing infographic template and now need to populate it with the textual and pictorial content.
