Adobe Illustrator CC

Vector graphics editing through our Adobe Illustrator course in Abu Dhabi

An illustrator is an artist who specializes in enhancing writing or elucidating concepts by providing a visual representation that corresponds to the content of the associated text or idea. The illustration may be intended to clarify complicated concepts or objects that are difficult to describe textually, which is the reason illustrations are often found in children’s books.

The Adobe Illustrator is based on a similar concept in that it is designed to help users visualise and create images through a digital platform. It is basically a sophisticated vector drawing tool that allows you to create distinctive designs with precise shape-building tools, fluid and painterly brushes, and advanced path controls. Our course aims to introduce students to the tools and capabilities of this software, and empower them with the knowledge to create from their imagination.
