Lecture description

Adobe Illustrator is the industry-standard vector graphics application that lets you create logos, icons, sketches, typography and complex illustrations for print, web, interactive, video and mobile devices. The advantage of working in Illustrator is that your work will be resolution-independent, which means that you can print it out in whatever size you want without losing image quality. For instance when you design a logo in Illustrator it will look just as crisp and detailed printed on a business card as on the side of an airplane. While working in Photoshop usually requires a photograph to start with, in Illustrator you can create amazing designs very quickly by starting with a blank canvas thanks to its outstanding variety of tools and techniques.

In this course we are going to start from the very basics like how to draw circles and rectangles all the way to creating complex illustrations, logos, business cards and so much more. My aim is to teach you the best ways of doing everything in Illustrator, to make you confident that you will always know which tool or feature to use in every situation.

Although we have a lot to cover I managed to boil down everything you need to know into a few hours of video tutorials that will not only get you good at using Illustrator but also help you to understand core concepts of graphic design, brand design and illustration. Learning Illustrator from this course will also provide you with plenty of best practices that I picked up and developed while working as a designer on projects such as Pixar Cars and Toy Story style guides, Hot Wheels posters and illustrations for companies like Accenture.

So what are we waiting for? Let’s get started and master Adobe Illustrator!
