Adobe Illustrator CC is the industry-standard programme for creating logos, icons, product design, and posters. It’s used to create graphics that can be resized without compromising on quality.

You’ll also learn how to customise your work space and use shortcuts, leaving the session with a range of tips and tricks that will enable you to work effectively with the powerful toolset that Illustrator provides.

Our Adobe Illustrator course is available at our training centre in The Shard, London. We also offer private training at a location of your choice across the UK.
