Bespoke Illustrator CS6 - 2 Day Advanced Overview

Illustrator Logo and Intermediate Course Delegates

Adobe Illustrator CS6 is the latest version of Adobe's industry standard vector-based illustrating tool and with the likely demise of Freehand it looks set to retain its crown for some time. It is used by graphic designers throughout the world to create a vast variety of different media including illustrations, package designs, leaflets & flyers, web graphics & animations, notice boards, billboards, and many other graphic objects.

Adobe Illustrator CS6 adds some great new features that beginners can start using straight away such as Control palette, Adobe Bridge, Live Trace and expanded export options.

By the end of this 2 day advanced course you will have refreshed your knowledge of the features in CS6 and developed your understanding of the more advanced features and tools of Adobe Illustrator CS6

(This course is also available as a 1 day course. This advanced course covers most of the advanced features of the 2 day course but allows less time for experimenting and creating completed designs.)


Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites

This course is intended for those who wish to enhance their existing knowledge of Illustrator and who work as graphic designers and textile/fashion designers. The course will also suit anyone else who has visual-design responsibilities.

You will need basic experience in using Illustrator. Ideally, you will have taken our Adobe Illustrator CS6 Intermediate 2 Day course.
