The 15 project-based lessons in this book show students step-by-step the key techniques for working in Illustrator and how to create vector artwork for virtually any project and across multiple media: print, websites, and interactive projects.
In addition to teaching the key elements of the Illustrator interface, this completely revised edition covers the new Touch Type tool for manipulating individual text characters, other type improvements like faster performance and a new font search, new brush options like painting with a brush made from a photo or auto-corners for seamless pattern brushes,¿transforming the visual designs in Illustrator to CSS style, and much more. New to this Illustrator CC edition—students now download the lesson files from the Peachpit website, so they can work along, step-by-step, with the book.
Instructor Notes for this title are available on the Pearson Higher Ed site.
When instructors adopt the MyGraphicsLab Adobe Illustrator CC Course for Graphic Design & Illustration, ISBN: 0133511456, (which includes the Adobe Illustrator CC Classroom in a Book), their students will have access to projects and project files, videos, presentations and quizzes!
