    what will I learn?

    Adobe Illustrator Training Course onsite in Northampton or online with live instructorThe course begins right at the beginning by covering the Illustrator interface, Illustrator Toolbox and many of its menu’s and panels. The Illustrator Courses are flexible and can be tailored to fit around your company so you can choose the type of content you want to create on the course.


    As an example over the years companies have opted to focus on info graphics, social media design, fashion design, logo and corporate branding, product packaging, charts & graphs for financials and more. The list is very long and the choice is yours. 


    Do I need to be an artist?


    In short, no! Because by learning Illustrator you will learn how to adapt existing artwork to create your own unique highly effective graphics. 


    Although of course illustrators and digital artists use the software extensively. However Adobe Illustrator provides tools such as AutoTrace and the Pen tool which let you work with existing artwork to produce your own unique imagery.
