Adobe Illustrator – The Essentials to Get Started
When I first started doing graphic design, I was using Microsoft Image Composer and PowerPoint! I can’t even imagine doing what I do now using those tools. The problems with using Adobe products was that they intimidated me. There are so many tools and I had no clue where to even begin. With the seven videos below, you can do a good majority of the basics in Illustrator so you look like a pro, not a Joe Schmo.
I’ve been doing web and graphic design now for over 11 years. What started as a hobby has become my full-time job and I freaking love it. No one person taught me how to use Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator, and it has taken me years to get to a level where I am comfortable using both tools and knowledgeable enough that I can share some basic information that will save you hours of head scratching.
Instead of typing out these instructions, I’ve taken the time to find the best tutorials on YouTube so you don’t have to wade through the crap and waste your time like I did. If you are new to Illustrator, watch these vides and start using this amazing tool with confidence.
