About This Class

Adobe Illustrator is the tool to use if you want to create simple, clean graphics such as icons, logos, charts or maps, whether for use in print, online or within apps. But this complex program, a key tool of graphic designers, has a reputation of being difficult to learn, especially for those without a design background or experience in related programs such as InDesign or Photoshop.

If you’re a beginner, My Illustrator 101 course will give you the foundation and confidence you need. You'll learn quickly, creating a variety of increasingly complex graphics such as banners, logos and charts, that each build on skills you’ve already learned. To finish, you'll learn how to save a graphic so that you can use it either in a printed document or on a website. By the end of the course you’ll have learned the necessary skills to create your own create simple, beautiful vector graphics.
