About This Class

No more excuses! Today is the day you start using Adobe Illustrator. It's SOO easy. By learning just a few tools I will have you up and running in no time. I'm not teaching everything. But just enough so you can start creating logos and vector graphics. These are the tools I use every day as a graphic designer.

This is ALMOST the class I was looking for. I am a total NEWBIE... seriously. I learned a lot. I love the LIVE style of filming so you get the mistakes and problems as they occur. However; I would have liked to learn more about the select tools and what the differences between the two are, at the very beginning of the lessons. What is second nature to the instructor (like deleting things and using the selection tools) is foreign to me. The end of the lessons began touching on more advanced techniques which is fun to see what I can move on to... but too much time was spent on them. Over all.... GREAT class!
This class is excellent for beginners. After trying many different tutorials this one really worked for me due to the slow pace, Jason's narration of shortcuts used and explanation of mistakes and why they occurred. It really is the best introduction to illustrator I have seen. If you have been frustrated by other tutorials who have been either going too fast or not explaining how/why certain things have happened, be sure to give this a go. Thanks Jason!
Lots of useful tips
