  • Adobe Illustrator Training - Introduction Course

    Illustrator Introduction Course

    This Illustrator training course does for artwork what the Photoshop Course does for photographs. It shows you how to produce drawings from scratch by working with many of its tools and features, learn tips and tricks and use colour, precision positioning & graphic’s effectively.  On this Adobe Illustrator training course in the Midlands you will learn how to create, edit and retouch images for a range of different purposes including both digital media, print and the web. 


    These Illustrator Courses are fluid and can be specifically tailored for you. On this Introduction to Illustrator Course you will produce various vector artworks including logos, icons, symbols, flyers through to more complex image creation and manipulation using tracing and pen tools. It is ideal for company groups or tailored one to one sessions. Most of the Illustrator Creative Cloud Training is delivered on the latest version currently CC 2018 but can also be delivered on legacy versions including CS 4, CS 5, CS 6, CC 2015, CC 2017

    What are the Benefits of:
    Onsite Illustrator Training?



    Onsite training is extremely flexible and can be organised for one to one sessions, larger team roll outs or company groups/workshops. There are a range of pluses to opting for onsite courses but the main ones are:


    • Training is hands on meaning they will retain more than if they watched a tutorial, read an article or viewed a presentation

    • No traveling involved for you or your team saving travel & expenses

    • Cheaper than traditional training 

    • The approach is focused specifically on you and your specific needs this is not a generic one size fits all course. 

    • No external attendees on the course
    • Prior to the training you chat with me about your aims, content preferences and levels of delegate /s knowledge which means we both have clear guidelines for the Illustrator Training

    • Flexible dates & times to suit you


    Illustrator Course Info

    This Illustrator Course content takes between one and two days depending on the amount of people sitting on the training – for one person a day usually suffices but for small groups of between 4 and 6 people two days is more realistic.   


    Laptop Hire

    Short of a laptop or 6?  If so, then I can supply laptops and projector hire and take care of all aspects of your Illustrator training course – again, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat about your needs.


    Thank you for visiting my site.

    Don’t have a good day have a great one.
