About This Class

Hi there, welcome to this Adobe Illustrator advanced tutorial. 

My name is Dan. I’m an ACI & ACE for Illustrator. 

Download the exercise files and completed files here.

This course is a more advanced look at Illustrator. It’s not designed for people who are brand new to Illustrator.

This course is for people who can already understand the fundamentals of Illustrator. If you already know what an anchor point is and how to adjust it this course is for you.

This course will speed up your productivity & workflow. It is project based, so you will learn the tools & tricks to create some really beautiful current design styles.

Even if you consider yourself an experienced user, I promise there will be things in here that will blow your Illustrator mind.

You’ll learn advanced anchor point & pen tool tricks. There is a really fun section on mastering lines & strokes. You’ll learn the quick way to take hand drawn sketches and vectorize & color them.

You’ll master depth & perspective in Illustrator, creating semi-flat presentations. We’ll set permanent defaults for fonts, colours & learn how to turn hyphenation off once and for all.

We’ll make beautiful charts & graphs for your indesign documents. There is a colour mastery section where you will learn to make quick colour adjustments, gradients meshs & how to blend it all together.  

Your creativity will be doubled once you finish the transform, distort & blending section of the course.

There is an entire section dedicated to learning how to speed up your personal workflow & how to speed up Illustrator and get it running super fast. 

If you’re ok in Illustrator but you know there is so much more in there to be unlocked then please  join me and become an Illustrator super hero.

great and useful material! i tried it all :)
Awesome class. First one I've taken on Skillshare that was this long and this in-depth and I've been on Skillshare for 4 yrs. I love Illustrator and I use it everyday. I used to be intimidated by it when I was an art director and mainly working in ID and PS. But now that I'm a surface pattern designer, AI is my favorite...PS too...but AI is awesome. Thank you Daniel for all the tips, tricks and giggles at the puppet warm monster.

I've really been enjoying this class and have been learning so much. I taught myself Illustrator years ago. Having been somewhat limited in my skills and always wondering how some designers do certain things, Daniel has opened my eyes to tools and tricks I never thought to use in such a well thought out and easy-to-understand way. Pure brilliance. Every few minutes or so while watching I find myself smiling and saying "Aha!" I feel confident to take my design chops to another level. Couldn't recommend this class more.
