Overview

Adobe Illustrator CC is the industry standard program for creating logos, icons, product design, posters and anywhere you need to create graphics that can be resized without loss of quality.

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.

Our Adobe Illustrator course is available at our training centre in The Shard, London.

We also offer private training courses tailored to your needs, which are ideal if you have a digital team that has recently migrated onto using Adobe products.
