Hello Lunacy <3
My road towards 2D Vector Graph Design and Motion Graphics started with something as simple as drawing Spiderman in MS Paint. I then started doing some more fashionable pieces in programs like Google Slides, Google Drawings and MS PowerPoint. I was creating presentations and simplistic (no colour) UI designs for mobile devices.
Later I got tasked with creating a bunch of icons, maybe 30 or so icons. The icons needed to be delivered asap, and the format needed to be SVG. At the time I had no idea what an SVG file was, and I had no interest in paying expensive fees for software to do some work in a field I’m only just testing out. So I came across Lunacy.
I downloaded Lunacy and started trying to figure out how to use it. I spent all sleepless hours of that night trying to make icons in Lunacy. I had never before actually worked with any type of vector software. It took time, lot’s of it, to figure out vector logic as well as what I could do with it in Lunacy. But it was always Lunacy that I used, and it was from Lunacy I learned my first set of skills in vector design.
I have now used Lunacy for about 8 months, and I’ve now moved on. But I will always remember Lunacy, because this was the software that gave me all of those “aha” moments, “so that’s something you can do”, “oh, I didn’t know that” and so on. I’ve also taught some basic vector design to a group of students using Lunacy, as it is a completely free software.
Lunacy will always have a special place in my heart, but I have now completed my transition to another more powerful (paid) software. It is with a bit of pain in my chest that I pressed the uninstall button today.
A big thank you to everyone behind the beautiful, wonderful, ludicrous Lunacy software!
Keep up the fantastic work!
