Translate abstract data into a 3D, easy-to-understand illustration in this great Illustrator tutorial by Wendy Ding.


11. Create the callout illustrations and mask each with a circle shape. To do this, create a circle with the Ellipse tool (L) and place it on top of the section of illustration to be masked, then select both objects, right-click (Ctrl + click) and select Make Clipping Mask. Then place a bigger circle underneath to add an outline.



12. Place each symbol of the girls vertically and line them up by selecting them and pressing the Horizontal Align Center button under Window > Align. To place the text, use the Type tool (T) to create the text and place it roughly to the right of each symbol, and then selected each set and align it again using the Horizontal Align Center button.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
