ABOUT JASON'S CLASS:

Adobe® Illustrator® CC can help you create everything from web icons and product packaging to book illustrations and billboards -- but only if you know all the hidden features. Illustrator CC is one of the best vector graphics software programs available, designed to help you create icons, logos, drawings, type and more for the web, print, or your mobile needs. Yet the extent of the illustrator tools likely means that, if you are self-taught or just opening Illustrator CC for the first time, you're missing out on some key features that not only will bring your designs to the next level, but also streamline your workflow.

When you purchase this course you’ll gain access to an enduring resource to build your skills. You will also receive a tutorial material that acts as a reference guide as you explore the software and tackle new projects.

Join well-known software instructor Jason Hoppe to learn how to incorporate a company name into a logo, make a flyer or mock up your new website. In this 20 lesson workshop, Jason covers setting up your document to exporting your creation for use across devices and everything in between. As a boot camp, this course is structured to allow professional designers to spend about an hour or so each weekday to learn the ins and outs of Illustrator in just four weeks.

WHO THIS CLASS IS FOR:

  • Adobe Illustrator newbies
  • Self-taught Illustrator users ready to uncover the hidden features and workflows design experts use
  • Those looking for explanations on Illustrator's latest new features, like the freeform gradient tool
