Private in-person Adobe Illustrator Graphic Design Training

Let’s face it, if you are using Photoshop or PicMonkey to create logos, business cards, or anything that needs to be printed, you need to take this course. Adobe Illustrator, unlike Photoshop, is a vector drawing tool. What does this mean? Adobe Illustrator offers an output file in a vector format/graphic that can be resized to any size without losing any quality. For logos, this is a must. When it comes to printing, the vector format of the logo file can print out super sharp no matter the size.
