Description

This course is for the beginner designer, animator, motion designer, or student who is looking to learn more about Adobe Illustrator and After Effects, and how to apply these skills in a professional setting.

In this class you will learn how to illustrate flat vectors in Illustrator.

We'll start in Photoshop where we will make a rough sketch to lay out our ideas.

We'll bring our sketch into Illustrator to refine our design and illustration using shapes and the pen tool.

We'll bring the Illustrator file into After Effects and convert them to shape layers.  We'll animate the shape layers using shape parameters.

In addition to the lectures, throughout the course I will be supplying my working projects so that you can use them as a downloadable resource as you follow along.

At the end of this course, you'll be able to design and illustrate flat vector illustrations in Illustrator and animate them in After Effects using the shape layers.
