This course focuses on Illustrator the component within CC used to create “drawn” graphics, while enabling its users to integrate content from other domains (such as photo-oriented graphics and animation, which belong to Adobe® Photoshop® and other applications). With Illustrator’s many easily used tools, you will discover that not only can you unlock the same creative impulses you’ve always had as you’ve picked up a pencil to sketch out an idea, but also capture those multiple ideas and “what ifs” during the creative process in ways that you never imagined. And for those of you who are just embarking on building your creative skills, you will be surprised at “how good” your work will appear, even at the outset of your exploration of the world of graphic design.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to use Illustrator to create illustrations that include graphics and text. Students will learn to:
- Identify the components and capabilities of Illustrator CC.
- Create basic shapes.
- Create custom paths.
- Create graphics that contain custom text.
- Customize objects.
This course is intended for designers, publishers, pre-press professionals, marketing communications professionals, or people switching to a design job or taking on design responsibilities and who need to use Illustrator to create illustrations, logos, advertisements, or other graphic documents.
- Premiere Pro.
