A 12 Week Course in Partnership with WCC
Need to up your digital design game? This project based, hands-on design course begins with a brief introduction to design theory and best practices. From there, participants will transition to the “big three” of the industry standard graphic design software:
- Adobe Photoshop (April 12th, April 19th, April 26th, May 3rd)
- Illustrator (May 10th, May 17th, May 24th, May 31st)
- InDesign (June 7th, June 14th, June 21st, June 28th)
Not only will we teach how to use each of these platforms, you’ll also learn which tool is the right tool for the right job. You will learn to edit and enhance images in Photoshop, create digital content in Illustrator and how to layout and design utilizing InDesign for print or the web. There will be assignments each week to reinforce the skills covered in class.
But wait, there’s more!
You’ll also learn how Adobe Bridge can improve your workflows across the Adobe tool set and increase productivity. Participants will finish the program by applying skills learned and building applicable projects they may find valuable to their organization.
