Alignment & Distribution of objects
• CorelDRAW lets you precisely align and distribute objects in a drawing. You can align objects with each other and with parts of the drawing page, such as the center, edges, and grid. When you align objects with objects, you can line them up by their centers or by their edges.
• You can align multiple objects horizontally or vertically with the center of the drawing page. Single or multiple objects can also be arranged along the edge of the page and to the nearest point on a grid.
Basic shape logo design in CorelDRAW
One of the biggest challenges for any company, big or small, is image and branding. What do you look like from someone who has never heard of you? How can you ensure the impression is a good and memorable one? One of the most important tools is the company logo and it’s also one of the first places things can go wrong. We’ve all seen a logo in the past and thought, “What a mess.” It could be too small or too large, overly complicated, perhaps the colors look terrible together or the contrast makes it unreadable. Whatever the issue, we want to highlight some of the best practices in design to help you in the process. After all, your business is often an extension of you and we want it to look great
Redraw & sketch with a pen tool
The Outline Pen tool is part of the Outline Tools tool group. These tools are not displayed by default in the toolbox that runs along the left side of the CorelDRAW interface. Windows users can add them to the toolbox, by clicking the plus icon at the bottom of the toolbox, scrolling down to the end of the list, and adding a checkmark beside Outline Tools.
There are several ways to access the settings for the Outline Pen tool, including:
• Outline Tools tool group in the Toolbox
• Keyboard shortcuts: F12 for Windows and CMD + SHIFT + P for Mac
• Outline tab on the Properties docker
• Outline swatch on the status bar
• Property bar
Color fill with the pen tool
With the Fill tools in CorelDRAW, you can add colored, patterned, textured, and other fills to the inside of objects or other enclosed areas. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to use the Interactive Fill tool to fill objects with uniform fills, fountain fills, pattern fills and texture fills.
The Uniform Fill option applies the current fill color. You can click the Fill Color dropdown and choose a different color or use the eyedropper to sample a color anywhere in CorelDRAW or on your desktop.
The Edit Fill icon opens a window in which you can set exact pattern values or choose your own pattern image. This window is available for all fill types, each of which have their own settings.
Transparency & Drop shadow
• Drop shadows simulate light falling on an object from one of five particular perspectives: flat, right, left, bottom, and top. You can add drop shadows to most objects or groups of objects, including artistic text, paragraph text, and bitmaps.
• Drop shadows created in CorelDRAW are ideal for printed outputs, but are not appropriate for output to devices such as vinyl cutters and plotters. Cuttable shadows are needed for such projects. To add a cuttable shadow to an object, you need to duplicate the object, fill the duplicate with a dark color, and then place it behind the original object
Font Theory in Coreldraw
The fruits of graphic design labor – advertisements, websites, and so much more – will be viewed without the designer present to clarify the meaning of elements used. The work has to communicate clearly on its own, making typography a fundamental piece of graphic design. The font used must be consistent with the tone used in brand messaging.
Selecting fonts in CorelDRAW
“Font” and “typeface” are two typography terms that are often used interchangeably, but they do not have the same meaning. A font is a collection of characters that includes letters, numbers, and symbols of one variation of a typeface, such as bold or italic. A typeface, which is also known as a font family, is made up of several fonts that share similar design characteristics. In other words, a font is the mechanism that allows you to render the characters onscreen or in print, whereas the typeface, which embodies the style and visual distinctiveness of the characters, refers to the design and style of the type.
Layout & Design rules in Coreldraw
We can work over drawings by describing various settings for layout style, orientation, and size of a page. Various options can be selected if describing the page layout could be applied as the default for each new drawing we create. Also, we can adjust the orientation and size settings of the page for matching the paper settings to print.
Understanding different theme & layout in Coreldraw
Page layout details the basic design of the elements of a page. A design template might give you a basic idea of where you should put your page’s visual elements, from the images you want to use to the photos. You will often start with a mock-up of your finished design to give you a better idea of what you want the finished product to look like before picking out the specific images and content you wish to use on the page.
Types of Page Layout
• Yearbook Page Layouts
• Magazine Page Layout
• Comic Page Layout
• Manga Page Layout
• Landing Page Layout
• Landing Page Layout
Creating different layout designs in CorelDraw
Page layout is an important aspect of web design. Your layout design can either captivate your viewer or drive them away. CorelDRAW’s intuitive page layout tools make it easy to visualize your design and get feedback before you begin working on the page.
• Open CorelDRAW with a blank page.
• Add images, graphics, and text. Use an empty Power Clip frame as a placeholder if you don’t have all the objects you need.
• Move and align the objects as needed
• And you are done. Save before you close.

Understanding conceptualizing logo design
The purpose of a logo is to represent the company and its brand. The logo should be memorable and it should have a strong visual impact. In order to create an effective logo, one must know how to design in CorelDRAW.
