Adobe Illustrator is the industry-standard illustration application for print, multimedia and online graphics.

Whether you are a designer or technical illustrator producing artwork for print, an artist producing multimedia graphics or a creator of web pages for any online content Adobe Illustrator offers you all the tools you need to get professional results.

There is no requirement to have used Adobe Illustrator before the course begins.

Previous knowledge of any Adobe Creative Suite software is an advantage, but by no means essential.

Knowledge of either Mac or Windows operating systems, and being able to handle basic file management and navigation, is essential.

What will I gain?

Upon completing the training course, you will be able to create your own scalable vector-based artwork that can be applied to either print or web outcomes.

Tutor profile: Mark Williams teaches software skills on the undergraduate programmes at NTU.

He has a degree in graphic design and 17 years' experience working with and teaching Adobe products.

Mark has developed and delivered training courses to large and small businesses all over the UK.
