In the following tutorial we take you through the practical process of producing a large black-and-white wall decal and applying it within a physical space.

We start by offering some general planning tips and then take you through the steps needed to create a digital illustration in Illustrator. Things then get more hands-on with the intricate process of cutting vinyl and applying it within your prepared space.

From start to finish we show you how this is an achievable project; how you can turn something produced on your computer into an extraordinary decorative object. Once you've seen how it's done, you can tailor the process to your own ends and fully explore all the possibilities that vinyl decals hold.
