This four-part series training class introduces you to Adobe Illustrator, a sophisticated graphics application that helps you to create complex and attractive designs. You can create logos, advertisements, and other illustrations with ease using this software. However, creating complex designs can be overwhelming if you are not familiar with the tools present in Adobe Illustrator and their features.
In this course, you will learn to use Adobe Illustrator by drawing and manipulating simple shapes to create logos, as well as combining text and graphics to create advertisements.
This class is hands-on and intensive, but designed to help make difficult topics easier to understand. Your instructor, an Adobe Certified Expert, will work with you closely to make sure that you avoid common mistakes in Illustrator and apply best practices when possible.
Who should attend: This course is intended for designers, publishers, pre-press professionals, marketing communications professionals, or for anyone taking on design responsibilities and needs to create illustrations, logos, advertisements, or other graphic documents.
