Course Outline

To meet the demands of individuals and organizations for flexible, reusable, and easily modified visual content, Adobe Systems has created a cadre of applications that collectively provide a scalable, end-to-end solution for nearly every type of visual design project one can contemplate. Called Creative Suite 6 (CS6), the collection of applications perform specialized design tasks while interoperating among each other to deliver superlative content. 

This course focuses on Illustrator CS6, the component within CS6 used to create €oedrawn€ graphics, while enabling its users to integrate content from other domains (such as photo-oriented graphics and animation, which belong to Photoshop® and Flash®). With Illustrator's many, easily used tools, you will discover that not only can you unlock the same creative impulses you've always had as you've picked up a pencil to sketch out an idea, but also capture those multiple ideas and €oewhat ifs€ during the creative process in ways that you never imagined. And for those of you who are just embarking on building your creative skills, you will be surprised at €oehow good€ your work will appear even at the outset of your exploration of the world of graphic design.
