About the Course

Adobe Illustrator is a vector drawing program. It’s used by designers to create illustrations, motifs, patterns, cartoons, diagrams and logos which can be scaled to any size without the loss of quality.

On this course you’ll learn the fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator and the essential software skills which enable textile designers to create original vector motifs.

The course is suitable for textile designers or for anyone interested in learning about the rudiments of vector design and improving their computer design skills. The course will be taught on the PC, and participants are not required to have any prior knowledge of Adobe Illustrator.

On this course you will:

be introduced to the Illustrator workspace and how to save files
learn how to draw shapes using the pen tool
select, transform and group objects
use brushes and work with colour, fills and strokes
blend shapes and colours
use and create patterns, including the use of masking and clipping
include text in your designs.

What will I gain?

By the end of the course you’ll have the skills and knowledge to build your own vector image portfolio, and a good understanding of how Adobe Illustrator is being used by textile designers today.
