WHY LEARN ILLUSTRATOR?
Did you know that most fashion design job postings require applicants to be proficient in Adobe Illustrator? This course will get you up to speed and put you ahead of your competition.
Below is what we will cover:
• Create seamless repeating patterns (will be taught in both CS5 & CS6)
• Easily emulate ribbing, ruffles & ruching using pattern brushes
• Make lots of colorways, fast!
• Tips, tricks & shortcuts
WHY LEARN WITH ME?
With close to a decade of experience using Illustrator, much of this time concentrated in the fashion design realm, I not only know the program inside and out but know the tips and tricks of how to make it work for fashion design. You are getting taught by an industry professional, not by someone who just “knows” how to use Illustrator. Learn exactly what you need to know to work in the fashion world!
WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING
“Thanks for the video tutorial. I like it in particular because it doesn’t take short-cuts and is precise. I am a life-long sketcher and, even though I am moderately familiar with Illustrator and enjoy digital brushwork, I just haven’t been able to marry my sketches with the digital format. This may help.”
