More info

Adobe Illustrator is the industry-standard illustration application for print, multimedia and online graphics. Whether you are a designer or technical illustrator producing artwork for print, an artist producing multimedia graphics or a creator of web pages for any online content, Adobe Illustrator offers you all the tools you need to get professional results.

What will I learn?

Upon completing the training course students will be able to create their own scalable vector based artwork that can be applied to either print or web outcomes, you will:

  • Create vector artwork using Illustrator
  • Format paths using fills and colour
  • Understand and use the Pen Tool
  • Add type to designs
  • Manage artwork using layers
  • Output graphics in different file formats

Do I need previous knowledge?

There is no requirement to have used Adobe Illustrator before the course begins, although previous knowledge of any Adobe Creative Suite software would be an advantage but by no means essential. A good working knowledge of either a MAC or Windows operation system is required, being able to handle basic file management and navigate/open files from a desktop computer.
