How to Make a Shiny Heart in CorelDraw

Impressing a girl with art work

CorelDRAW is a software for editing vector graphic. A vector graphic is comprised of paths, instead of grid of pixels. This makes it easy for designers to use CorelDraw to create line arts, draw simple and complex diagrams. The versatile nature of CorelDraw and its simplicity will help you quickly create a design to impress a girl you like.

This quick guide to CorelDRAW is for both beginners and advanced learners who wants to learn how to impress a girl with graphic design.

Examples of Things You Can Do to Impress A Girl with Graphic Design

  • Picture – one of the commonest things to do is interjecting her photo into a background she admires e.g., Black Star Square, exotic hotel room, White House or throw in both of your images in an expensive ride.
  • Name – as an artist or graphic designer, you can become more creative than many competitors. With pencil and paper or a graphic software; spend some minutes to design her name in a romantic style.
  • Calendar – if you happen to get this post somewhere at the end of this year, design a calendar for her with her photo on one side while the date on the other. She’ll love it.
  • Frame – still on photo, you can ask for her picture, crop it nicely and pick a beautiful background, print it and frame or laminate it as a Valentine or X-mas gift.
  • Wallpaper – this will make her happy, find a romantic photo of her, design something impressive for her to use as smartphone or pc wallpaper.
  • Logo – if you are advanced designer, you have designed one or two logos for your clients – you can do same for your girlfriend if she has a business.
  • Flyer – same as logo, you can design her a flyer for her business to share online or printable.
  • Banner – if your girlfriend has an office, you can design a banner for her – a friend of mine did this recently for his girlfriend and her heart is touching the skies honestly – in fact, he got more than a kiss for this.
  • Cartoon – there are many easy ways today to turn yourself into anything at all with few clicks on your smartphone – it doesn’t mean it won’t impress your girlfriend should you use a professional graphic software to do this – if you are advanced CorelDRAW user, import her image, and use ‘Bezier’ tool to trace her, after that, color it and present her.

That’s all!! We done. Bye!!

No, I won’t leave you in the wind and walk on!
