Learn Adobe Illustrator with our Adobe & Graphic Design Training Courses in Sydney.

Learn the basics of Adobe Illustrator CC, and get an introduction to this industry-standard vector graphics software. It is 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.

Adobe Illustrator CC is alive with features which you will learn in this affordable, mixed level Adobe Creative Cloud course, at our city campus.

We expect that you are able to confidently and quickly navigate the computer directory and be able to locate files with ease. Adobe programs are professional level programs 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.
