The students were asked to come up with ideas for useful tools in Illustrator, either for their own needs or for something they identify as generally missing in Illustrator's functionality. During one intense week of teaching a mixture of geometry, scripting and designing simple user interfaces and interactions, the students then worked on turning their ideas into functioning products.
With Time Bandit 2.0, the first result of this week just started to arrive on the Scriptographer.org website now, and a quite astonishing one too. Who would have thought that Illustrator would be useful as an animation tool?
Thanks again to all the students for their enthusiasm for the scripts. We hope your work will inspire you and others to take this way of working further, beyond the scope of these workshops.
