Course Details and Schedule

Illustrator is a software package used for creating illustrations such as diagrams, technical drawings, maps and logos. It produces vector-based graphics which can be scaled without losing quality making them ideal for printed documents. Illustrator can also be used for simple page layout. This course must be taken before the Illustrator: Further techniques course. (Did you know there is a free, open source equivalent called Inkscape? We run Inkscape courses too.)
