Illustrator CC 2018 Essential Training

Illustrator—the world's leading vector illustration software—can be used to accomplish many different design tasks. This course teaches core concepts and techniques that can be applied to any workflow: for print, for the web, or for assets that will find their way into other applications. Instructor Tony Harmer shows you how to get around the interface, and explains elements of Adobe Illustrator, such as artboards, workspaces, layers, and shapes.

He demonstrates how to combine and clean up paths, and organize artwork into groups and layers.
