About This Class

This course teaches you the basics of Adobe Illustrator while showing you, step by step, how to create a set of amazing Social Media vector icons. By the end of this course you'll be able to take any image on the Web, and transform it in to a vector of your very own. In addition, you'll become comfortable with the Adobe Illustrator working environment, and build experience with a number of key tools, methods and sneaky shortcuts.

You'll create logo icons for:

  • Twitter
  • Vine
  • Facebook
  • Snapchat
  • Instagram
  • and Pinterest!

There are also Bonus tutorials on Transparency and Black and White alterations!

After this course you'll be able to market yourself as someone who can confidently and quickly edit logos, or even create vector logos from scratch, using images you or your client find online.
