  • Event Description
    Due to the success of our Q&A-based InDesign course, SMPS-LA is proud to bring you our next installment in this year’s Adobe CC Tips & Tricks series – Adobe CC Illustrator: The “Path” to Success!

    Adobe Illustrator has become a “love it / hate it” portion of the Adobe CC Suite. Those who are graphically inclined LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Those who learned how to work with images in Photoshop can’t deal with all the anchor points and lines (along with the lack of pixels). And then there are those us who get a little scared when someone mentions vector and EPS files because we simply have no idea what’s going on in this arena.

    Join us in Pasadena as Brandon leads us through the maze of Illustrator “paths”. We will cover creation of complex geometries from simple geometries in the bulk of the course, and a few useful ways to manipulate those geometries. Beginners and absolute novice users will learn new concepts, while intermediate users who have opened the program more than once will learn to use some features that you probably never noticed before. Seasoned users are more than welcome to attend and pick Brandon’s brain!

    Please send all questions and course topics to Cindy Ionita (cindy.ionita@swaarch.com). Due to the overwhelming response last time, only the first FIVE questions will be guaranteed a spot in the course. Please also feel free to bring questions and examples to the class if it's difficult to explain in an email. We will try our best to accommodate your questions throughout the session and at the end.
