Getting Started with Adobe Illustrator: Learn Through Projects


Adobe Illustrator is a powerful vector-based tool for designers, I have done around 80 percent of my design work throughout my 14-year freelance career in Adobe Illustrator and it has become the cornerstone software for my graphic design business. 

This extensive course will first walk you through the basics of Adobe illustrator as we review how to create shapes, the curvature tool, and go into full detail on how to master the pen tool where we can to trace and recreate simple and complex shapes. 

We will quickly move into our first project, creating an icon set.  We will learn and practice many tools while creating our icon set including reviewing the stroke panel, alignment, the width tool, artboards, shadows, gradients, exporting and more!
