Build a Custom Profile Avatar with Inkscape

Coursera Project Network

By the end of this project, you will build a customized profile avatar in Inkscape—a free, open-source graphics program. You’ll build complex shapes that can be expanded and resized without losing image quality, so you can resize and use the same image in different social media profiles and on other websites. You will practice working with vector graphics, including path editing, and you will feel comfortable using Inkscape to build basic and complex shapes, using align commands to accurately and easily position those shapes, and adding color and stroke to create eye-catching images. To build these skills, you’ll build a custom avatar from scratch, then add details and color to customize your profile. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
