This course focuses on Illustrator CS6, the component within CS6 used to create â€œdrawnâ€ 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 â€œwhat ifsâ€ 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 â€œhow goodâ€ your work will appear even at the outset of your exploration of the world of graphic design.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to use Adobe Illustrator CS6 to create illustrations that include graphics and text. You will:
- Identify the components and capabilities of Illustrator CS6.
- Create basic shapes.
- Create custom paths.
- Create graphics that contain custom text.
- Customize objects.
- Customize basic shapes.
