Creative Suite 6 Design Masterclass 5 Days Overview

Design Logo and masterclass course participants

This 5-day Masterclass course consists of a comprehensive introduction to some key Creative Suite design programs. Here is some of what you will use these Creative Suite programs to do:

  • Adobe Photoshop CS6: paint, retouch, and enhance images, and work with layers and layer selections
  • Adobe InDesign CS6: create and deliver eye-catching documents for the web and for print
  • Adobe Illustrator CS6: design illustrations, logos, and advertisements, using type and graphics for the web and for print
  • Adobe Bridge: view and manage all creative assets

The course pays special attention to keyboard shortcuts, automating workflows, and special-effects techniques, all of which will help you produce professional results in less time.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Create a logo using simple shapes, custom paths, and with special effects
  • Create an advertisement and import body type
  • Design documents and save them as Acrobat PDF files
  • Paint, retouch, and enhance images
  • Work with layers and selections
  • Use colours, swatches, and gradients
  • Manage transparency and use tables
  • Prepare for hand-off to a service provider
  • Manage the Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign environments
  • Manage your creative assets in Adobe Bridge

Our goal is to give you a comprehensive understanding of each of the Creative Cloud programs covered, and the way in which they interact with each other.

This course can be taken in a single 5-day block or split into a 2-day block (InDesign), then a separate 2-day block (Photoshop), and then a final 1-day block (Illustrator), each taken on different dates.


Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites

This course is intended for designers, pre-press professionals, architects, production managers, marketing staff, small business owners, web designers, and anyone else who wishes to master the Creative Cloud.

You will need basic PC or Mac skills, including a solid understanding of a computer's operating system (Windows or Mac OS). You will also need to know how to launch a program, create and save files, and copy files from CDs and other media.
