On this one-day course, you'll learn how to work with shapes, colour, effects and typography. We'll teach you how to prepare and optimise your graphics to make them ready for web, print and video.
You will learn how to customise your work space, use short cuts and a range of tips and tricks that will enable you to work effectively with the powerful tool set that Illustrator gives us.
