Learn vector graphics & illustration in Adobe Illustrator with our Adobe Creative Cloud courses in Sydney.

Get an introduction to the industry-standard vector graphics software that is Adobe Illustrator. Used worldwide by designers of all types who want to create digital graphics, illustrations, and typography for all kinds of media: print, web, interactive, video, and mobile.

Adobe Illustrator is used to design vector graphics. Vector graphics are one of the two most commonly used graphic formats in design, the other being bitmap (or raster) graphics. Vector graphics, like those created with Adobe Illustrator, are resolution independent, which means they can be resized infinitely with no loss of quality.

Please note that we currently offer two types of courses – class room and live online via zoom platform. If you choose our live online option, a material kit with all necessary items will be delivered to your door step after enrolment.

Other information

We expect that you can confidently and quickly navigate the computer directory and be able to locate files with ease. Adobe apps are professional-level software and an inability to use a computer confidently will restrict you from progressing in the class. If you are unsure about your computer competency, please contact Customer Service so that we can arrange a call to discuss.
