Illustrator is a programme to make up non photographic visuals. You can make images that usually have a 2D cartoon feel but differ in style enormously. Illustrators use Illustrator to make up artwork. Logo’s are usually made in Illustrator and any graphics supporting design. This Vector drawing programme is great for people working in small businesses and taking on some of the design work, visual artists wanting to explore their designs in vector illustration and Social Media Managers wanting to explore this style of design or young professionals wanting to up-skill in this area.
With these skills you could design your own logo and import the graphics into an animator programme. You could build backgrounds to greenscreen on video and use for graphics in social media posts. You could design and make icons and graphics to build on the existing brand if working for a small company or as the entrepreneur yourself.
We will be exploring how to do simple animations with the graphics you create at the end of the course.
In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2 ½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.
