Why should you learn Vector Graphic Design?
•Graphic Design is an 11 billion dollar industry in the United States alone.
•An average graphic designer makes upwards of $70,000 every year. The best of us make more than $140,000 every year.
•To become a graphic designer, you need to have thorough knowledge of a vector graphics program, which offers far more flexibility in design than a pixel based editor like photoshop.
The best program available for graphic designers to use, is Adobe Illustrator. Illustrator is also the industry standard tool for vector graphic design. This course teaches you Adobe Illustrator completely, from scratch. You will get a strong foundation of Illustrator and Graphic Design which you can build upon. You need not know anything about the software. You will learn every tool, technique and trick in the book. You will learn about the most widely used tools as well as the rarely used but quite useful tools. You will become familiar with Graphic Design terminologies and learn how to work with vector graphics.
Specifically, this course will teach you:
•Basic components of the Illustrator interface like the navigator, panels, work spaces and Screen modes.
•Working with art boards inside Adobe Illustrator.
•The concept of layers and working with multiple layers inside Adobe Illustrator.
•The various versatile drawing tools inside Illustrator like Paths, Lines and Curves, Spirals, Ellipses and Rectangles, Pencil tool and also the different Drawing modes inside Illustrator
•The various selection and arrangement tools inside Illustrator like the Direct Selection tool, Scale, Rotate, Transform, Reflect, moving and duplicating and the concept of Isolation mode.
•The Pen tool.
•Typing, printing and exporting your work.
The course covers everything listed, and more, in minute detail.Whenever necessary, i have provided project files that you could take a look at, before re-creating the files yourself.
The course is structured in a systematic way, beginning with an introduction about Illustrator and a tour of its Graphic Design Essentials interface. From there, we will move forward and introduce the tools available in Illustrator, one by one. You will learn how to work with each tool and the minor details and tricks involved in using these tools. As you learn each tool, you will create a unique illustrator document to showcase the ability of that tool. At the end of the course, you will have worked with all the important tools.
I have also provided a bonus section where i demonstrate the use of these techniques to create actual project files. I will keep adding more content to this course. This course will be expanded and updated regularly. You will need about 6.5 hours to complete this course, the way it is now. I have enabled preview for some of the lectures. You will find that they are loaded with information and are incredibly concise. If you are interested in graphic design, this is the course that you should take. Go ahead. Invest in yourself.
