Robin is a graphic designer and illustrator working primarily in the publishing industry. Her “real world” experience brings a level of professional know-how that flows, like a river of knowledge, through her insightful Adobe tutorials...
Proper setup is everything. That's why this course launches with some extremely useful setup tips that will save you time and speed up your workflow. Next, you learn Robin's secret layer setup that she's perfected over the countless professional projects she's managed. From there you learn the best ways to arrange the multitude of panels available in Illustrator and how to save and deploy them to create blazingly fast and efficient workspaces.
Why waste time doing the same techniques over and over again? That's what Actions are for. In the next section of this course you learn to harness the power of Illustrator CC's Actions to significantly slash your production time and let the software do the repetitive heavy-lifting for you!
You also learn about the power of repeating patterns. Robin creates several different types of patterns, explains the principles behind them and shows you how to use them in your projects. You also learn how to create custom brushes with which to equip your professional toolbox! While they may appear complex initially, Robin reveals how truly simple and yet powerful they can be.
As you proceed through this course, you gain the knowledge and insight which can only be obtained by mentoring with a practiced and highly skilled professional like Robin Storesund. Be sure to watch all the tutorials in this course and all of our growing library of Adobe Illustrator courses to glean as many juicy but solid professional tips and tricks as you can!
Nicely presented. However, if you've been thru the Illustrator 7 CC 100 series I don't think there's any need to spend the time watching these. There are a couple of cool gems though, for me 'Understanding Colorization Methods' and the pulling-out-of the spiral in 'The Right Tools' almost made it worth matching.
