Adobe Creative Cloud 2-Day Intensive Workshop | Chicago

About this workshop series

Immerse yourself in the amazing world of Adobe Creative Cloud applications that designers use to create a variety of brilliant print and digital media. This intensive will take you step-by-step through three of the most-used Adobe applications — 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’s evolved from a photographer’s tool, to now being used to design websites, 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 12-hour Adobe Creative Cloud 2-Day Intensive Workshop is the interactive and hands-on way to level up your design skills. You will dive head first into history and theory, skill up with exercises, and by the end of the day have a refined and powerful design skillset!
