Adobe Illustrator - past versions

Professional Artwork and Graphic Creation

Illustrator is a solely professional tool and is astonishingly powerful at graphics, cartoons, logos and icon-creation. Super sharp and fully-integrated with the remaining raft of programs in the Creative Suite, this program even boasts 3D functions and super-enhanced persepctive grids. If you create a logo you can save it in a a format that scales to any size, and we MEAN any size. Strictly for people serious about professional graphics: don't even whisper CorelDraw or you'll be laughed out of town.

NEED A MIX? WE CAN CREATE: A MIXED SOFTWARE COURSE THAT COMBINES ILLUSTRATOR WITH OTHER SOFTWARE COURSES; A TOTALLY CUSTOMISED COURSE; OR MIX IT WITH A DESIGN WORKSHOP. WHATEVER BLEND YOU WANT, YOU'VE GOT IT.

Our trainers aim to cover all topics described in the full course description, but occasionally they are required to cover some subjects in more detail, at the expense of other material on the day. We entrust course content to the tutor's discretion.
