Adobe Illustrator CC Training Course Beginners

You are inspired to design something. Something that will be used for business cards, brochures, magazines and on your company website. However you need to ensure that your design will appear professional and crisp even when enlarged on your printed materials such as a poster for an advertising campaign. You also need your picture to be the correct format for the web. Finally you don't want to have to repeat yourself or at least waste time converting your file from one format to the other.

This Illustrator training course will allow you to accomplish that elusive goal which is to create an image for all mediums.

Tools you will use:

Pathfinder Tool

Are your drawing skills up to scratch? Now be honest? An artist once told me that objects he draws are simply combined shapes, basically circles and squares joined together to make up a picture. That's where the pathfinder tool comes in. You can use it to create new shapes using the shape modes section. Or you can create combined paths that you can manipulate with the direct selection tool. Go to the pathfinder window then draw two circles on the page. Ensure that the circles overlap. Select both shapes with the Selection arrow then click on the Unite button to merge the shapes.Now you have a shape you could use as a binocular viewfinder or a set of cartoon eyes.

Try the same thing but this time use the divide button in the pathfinder window. Notice that it splits the shape into 3 parts. The parts are grouped however you can use the white direct selection arrow to click on the middle section and press delete to remove it. This way you can create some interesting shapes for computer logos, background graphics to use on business cards, leaflets and other stationery.
