2-Day Adobe Creative Cloud Crash Course | June 19
About This Workshop Series
Immerse yourself in the amazing world of Adobe Creative Cloud applications that help designers create a variety of brilliant print and digital media. The Adobe Creative Cloud is composed of three industry standard design applications that seamlessly connect with each other. Becoming proficient will set you on a path to success with the design industry’s latest tools and techniques.
This two-day workshop will provide step-by-step instruction leading you through three of the most-used Adobe applications. We'll spend the weekend learning the ins and outs of Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator.
InDesign is the professional publishing software used to create and design books, brochures, magazines and newspapers. Photoshop is the professional digital imaging software, that has evolved from a photographer’s tool and is now used to design websites and create interfaces and original iconography for digital screens on any device. Illustrator is the industry-standard vector graphics software for creating logos, illustrations and original typography.
This is a hands-on crash workshop and through step-by-step instruction, you will be led through the most important tools, concepts and techniques for all three programs.
If you want to level up your design skills and master the most used creative software out there, join us for an incredible weekend of learning. You'll walk into Monday with a refined, powerful skillset!
