Learn the essentials of working with graphics in Adobe Illustrator
There are no available registration dates at this time.
This workshop expands on the 2 day Introduction to Adobe Illustrator course. With a larger scope of the capabilities of this software, in this workshop we will look at strategies for integrating this program into your existing design workflow, switching seamlessly between other Adobe programs like Photoshop and InDesign.
Through demos, independent exercises, and collaborative design challenges, we will explore additional topics such as: graphics optimization for print and web, color management, the development of infographics, and data visualization.
Computer literacy on a Mac is required. This course is recommended for students who have participated in the 2 day Introduction to Illustrator, or have some working knowledge of vector graphics. Experience in other Adobe programs would be very helpful, but is not required.
