Description

Hello and welcome to Adobe Illustrator Course.

Illustrator is one of the most used software by artists.

With it, you can create a variety of digital and printed images, including cartoons, charts, diagrams, graphs, logos, and much more.

My name is Youssef Zidan, and I will be leading you throughout this course.


What is different about this course?

There are thousands of Illustrator Courses online, why you should take this one?

There are two kinds of teaching methods, the first one is by telling you how the tool works and that’s it, which is not a bad method, yet it’s not perfect.

Because the student needs to know how to use this tool in a real project to fully understanding.


And the other method is teaching the tool directly in a project, which is also a good method but also not perfect because students might get lost between learning the tool itself and doing the project, especially because making a project, even if it’s a simple one, requires more than one tool.


So in this course, I merged the two methods, each chapter we will talk about a specific topic, and explain all the fundamental tools and options individually, then we will use what we’ve learned and more by making a simple project.


So, that way we get the best of the two worlds.

This course is divided into chapters.

Each chapter talks about a specific topic.

I highly recommend walking through each chapter one by one because each chapter depends on the chapters before it.

At the end of this course, you will be making 8 different projects that you can put in your resume.


You will have 30 Days' money-back if you dislike this course.

Also, each lecture has English Subtitles if your native language isn't English or if you don't understand my accent.


So, What are you waiting for? Enroll now and meet me in the first lesson.


Who this course is for:
  • Graphic Designers
  • Artists
  • Anyone wants to learn a new skill
  • The people who has knowledge about Adobe Photoshop
