Course description

Adobe Illustrator Introduction:

This 2-day Introduction course helps you learn about the tools and features available in Adobe Illustrator. We will help you understand how this industry-leading program takes graphical design to a new level. You will learn how to create and manipulate shapes and curves, combining them with text to produce simple logos ready for the web and for print. Together, we will work with colours, gradients, layers, fonts, and photos to create eye-catching illustrations and text effects.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Navigate the Illustrator environment
  • Draw and understand B├ęzier curves, the root of drawing in Illustrator
  • Create a logo using simple shapes
  • Apply gradients and patterns
  • Edit paths and anchor points
  • Set attributes in the Appearance panel
  • Measure objects and place them with precision
  • Trace and colour your hand-drawn artwork with Live Trace, Live Paint, and Live Colour
  • Export illustrations for web and for print

Our goal is for you to gain a comprehensive understanding in the basics of creating and manipulating shapes and text.

Additional entry requirements

This course is intended for graphic designers and textile/fashion designers, and anyone else who has visual-design responsibilities. You will need basic PC or Mac skills, including a solid understanding of a computer's operating system (Windows or Mac OS).
