Adobe Illustrator CC

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to use Adobe Illustrator CC to create illustrations that include graphics and text, draw complex illustrations, enhance artwork by using painting tools, customize colors and swatches, format type, enhance the appearance of artwork, prepare content for deployment, set up project requirements and prepare graphics for the web.

Description

This course focuses on Adobe® Illustrator® CC, the component within Creative Cloud 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.
