Course Approach

Our courses are focused on making you a faster and more knowledgable Illustrator user. They are deliberately hands-on, and include lots of practical exercises. This ensures that you spend lots of time actually working with Illustrator. We believe that real, useful skills can only be developed practically. Our exercises are carefully chosen to emphasise the most important aspects of each lesson.

Adobe Illustrator is a very large software package. It can often be very frustrating for a new user, as although they know that the software has a function that they need it is not easy to find it. The use of multiple exercises and examples during our courses ensures that delegates leave very familiar with the Adobe interface. This means that they are ready to apply their skills as soon as they get back to the office.

Uses Of Adobe Illustrator

At heart Illustrator is a piece of drawing software. It is used by graphic designers and artists to create illustrations, diagrams, logos and infographics amongst other things. It is the industry standard for this type of work.

The images that are produced by Illustrator are vector images rather than bitmap images. This means that they can be scaled without loss of resolution.

As it is part of the Adobe suite images produced in Illustrator will work seamlessly if imported into InDesign or Photoshop. While Illustrator is the best piece of software for creating images from scratch, editing them once created is often far more easily done in Photoshop.


The original version of Illustrator was released by Apple Mac in 1986. It was the commercially available version of Apple’s internal font software. It is now on version 17 and available for both Mac and Windows computers. Licences are available both as part of the Adobe Creative Cloud and indivually just for Illustrator.
