Adobe Illustrator for Graphic Design
6 online courses: Adobe Illustrator for Graphic Design

Before you start using Adobe Illustrator, become familiar with the basic interface elements and how to customize them. Learn the difference between a pixel and a vector, creating documents, as well as key components in the workspace like the properties panel and toolbar.

After you’re done with the tour of text tools, learn how to create and edit vectors. For example, design a company logo using a typeface and then convert it into an editable vector. Then do a small illustration of basic lines for a symbol before joining both elements with path and shape modifying tools, which will give your design more identity using the Symbols panel.

Next, design an advertising poster. You will learn how to work with pictures and convert them into vectors, as well as create special paints, gradients, and strokes to make your poster truly eye-catching. After that, you will edit bodies of text and arrange your piece using layers so it’s ready for final publication.

To finish these courses, investigate all the possibilities that Adobe Illustrator has to offer for storing and exporting projects. Examine the various settings and options for creating PDF files and learn how to configure the print settings of your files.

After finishing all six online courses, you will have all the skills you need to create professional-grade work for any graphic design project using an efficient workflow in Adobe Illustrator.
