Illustratorâ€”the world's leading vector illustration softwareâ€”can be used to accomplish many different design tasks. This course teaches core concepts and techniques that can be applied to any workflow: for print, for the web, or for assets that will find their way into other applications. Instructor Tony Harmer shows you how to get around the interface, and explains elements of Adobe Illustrator, such as artboards, workspaces, layers, and shapes. He discusses vector graphicsâ€”which are composed of paths, strokes, and fillsâ€”and shows how to create and edit them using the Illustrator drawing tools. He demonstrates how to combine and clean up paths, and organize artwork into groups and layers. Tony also covers typography and text editing, color, expressive brush drawing, effects, leveraging CC Libraries, printing and export, and much more.
