FreeHand tutorial: Designing with imported artwork

If you completed FreeHand tutorial: Illustration basics, which is the first tutorial of this two-part series, you designed a product logo. In this tutorial, you'll incorporate that artwork into a larger document: a sales brochure. Although you're not required to complete the previous tutorial before beginning this tutorial, Macromedia recommends that you work through the previous tutorial for a more complete experience with the new Macromedia FreeHand features and MX interface.

The tutorial takes approximately 1 hour to complete, depending upon your experience, and teaches you how to perform the following tasks:
