Description

This course has been created to provide the user with the skills required to incorporate all the packages of Adobe Creative Suite CC so as to develop all print requirements in-house.

Day 1 & 2 – Illustrator CC

Illustrator is used to create eye-catching vector illustration such as logos and background graphics. This course covers working with shapes and closed paths, including painting, grouping and colouring, plus placing and adjusting type. We will demonstrate how to select fonts, create hanging indents and tweak the kerning and leading of your text.

Days 3 & 4 – Photoshop CC

In this course the learner will develop the skills to build simple to complex graphics with the emphasis primarily on print-ready production using Photoshop. This course covers the image-editing process from the very beginning and progresses through the concepts and techniques that photographers and graphic designers need to know.

Days 5 & 6 – InDesign CC

InDesign will be used to assemble the elements together, using its intuitive page layout features to create all your print requirements. Amongst other features, in this course we demonstrate how to navigate and customise the workspace, manage documents and pages, work with text frames and graphics, export and print finished documents, and create interactive documents.
