Illustrator: Rock-Solid Alignment using Anchor Points

We all know that alignment is a huge part of any design. The more control we have over alignment, the better. After a certain point, 100% alignment control gives way to new opportunities to make Illustrator even more useful, like making seamless patterns for example. I want to show you how “anchor points” work in Illustrator, and hopefully send you into control-freak bliss.

Announcement: The Time Has Come

Hey everyone, I have an important announcement to make. I recently quit my job in order to devote my time to BittBox! In 2 1/2 weeks time I will be BittBoxing full time and taking on select few freelance jobs. You can expect a much more active BittBox.com in the near future. (and a little more insight into who I actually am) It will take some time to get moved and settled, and the next 2-3 weeks will be bumpy for me, but starting in December expect a dramatic rise in activity here. I also want to apologize for a lack in activity recently, but this is a weird time in my career (quitting my job to blog full-time and all). I think you all deserve the right to know what is going on and what to expect. The design below is devoted to this change and is titled “Fresh Start.” Don’t hold back, gimme your critique, it’s how we get better :)
