From logos to patterns, from packaging to type, you’ll learn a lot of what Illustrator can do. You’ll create numerous graphics throughout the course, using the standard drawing tools, the Pen tool, type, compound paths, effects, layers, masks, patterns, blends, colors, and more.
Mastering Illustrator’s vector Pen tool is not the most intuitive process, but using our drawing templates we’ll help you to master this tool. You’ll also learn ways to more easily create complex shapes out of basic shapes that are easier to draw. You’ll be able to use these techniques for any kind of graphic, whether it’s for print or web.
This class was the perfect course for me to level up my knowledge of Adobe Illustrator. I already use Illustrator on a daily basis in my graphic design role, but there are so many different tools and panels inside the program that I've never explored. I feel confident that I can start using these new skills right away in my illustrations, iconography, infographics, and more!
I would recommend to new students that it's great to take these courses, especially as supplements if you are familiar with the programs.
This class made everything super clear and simple for someone who has no prior Illustrator experience!
If Illustrator leaves you in the dark, let Noble Desktop be your torch. The classes are very well taught, easy to follow along, and the instructor very helpful, and friendly. You can count on me coming back for more classes. THANK YOU
I was always intimidated by Adobe Illustrator and never properly learned the program. After taking the Noble Desktop class I started using it immediately in my concepts and designs. It is a valuable program to know and Michele taught the class in a simplified and easy to use manner. I highly recommend it.
Whether you are a complete beginner or a professional just wanting to beef up your skills, Noble Desktop is the premier choice for computer training in NYC. I’ll definitely be coming back for more courses.
This class was very comprehensive for three days—I learned so much about Illustrator! The instructor was perfect: knowledgeable, attentive, and dynamic, delivering rather dry material with a sense of humor and fun. I’d recommend Noble Desktop courses to anyone.
Eugenio is very thorough in explaining the step-by-step process on everything. Whether it’s creating your own brush or gradient, he explains a few times and is eager for feedback and if anyone needs help.
Adobe Illustrator is overwhelming with a lot of information and tools to master, but the instructor made sure everyone can follow and understand the concept before he moves on to the next topic. This is a great introduction to Illustrator and is open to all levels, from someone who has never used the software before to even professional designers.
The Illustrator class was great. We covered a ton of material over the course of three quick days, and the material really filled in my knowledge gaps. I'm more confident now in my Illustrator skills...and what I can bring to my business and clients! Thanks Noble Desktop. :)
After using Illustrator for over 15 years I now understand how to use the pen tool more efficiently and will be able to do my job faster! Fabulous class.
I absolutely loved this class! I had no Illustrator experience going in and now I feel like an Illustrator ninja. Ethan, the instructor, moved quickly enough for those of us already experienced with other Adobe products, but explained everything so clearly that I think even a straight-up beginner would be able to follow along with no problems.

The class was great! I needed an Illustrator refresher course since I hadn't used it since college and needed it for my current job! I learned so much in 3 days. Michele was patient, thorough and fun. Great job! Looking forward to taking the Photoshop course!

Noble Desktop has taught me the technical skills I needed to harness my creativity. Before starting the Graphic Design Program with Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator boot camps I opened the programs maybe a few times before ever in my life. After 3 weeks of class with instructor Dan Rodney, I felt inspired, motivated and have begun creating my first graphic design portfolio!
A rapid, thorough program with good instruction, good instructors, and good online facilities for anyone (currently everyone) unable to attend the classes in Manhattan..

Amazing instructor!!! Extremely knowledgeable, knows so much about what he is teaching and super passionate about the course. I've taken Noble Desktop classes before and I will keep coming back because you guys have the BEST instructors.
I have taken Noble Desktop classes in person as well as online and both types were excellent! Great teachers, and I love that ND allows one to retake a class within 6 months. I took the Graphic Design certificate class with Eugenio during fall of 2019, and ND allowed me to retake the 3 Adobe bootcamps online via Zoom with Dan Rodney in June 2020. Retaking it online allowed me to gain additional insight and acquire a much more solid foundation in Illustrator, PS, and InDesign. Thank you ND! Highly recommended.
A plentiful dive into Adobe Illustrator as a powerful tool for any professional!
Well worth the time and investment!
Noble Desktop's Illustrator Boot Camp is awesome! I've added so many colors and gradients to the "swatch panel" of my design skills. Thanks Sneha! You've changed my life!
Eugenio was an awesome teacher. He demonstrated the capabilities of Adobe Illustrator beautifully while making it relevant and impactful for every individual. He is amazing at troubleshooting within the program, which shows how well he knows and understands its functions. I'd love to take another class with him.
Well worth the time and investment! I learned more in a single class than I have after weeks of watching videos online!
The teacher was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. The class was very interesting and learned a lot of new things that will help me in my next job.
I learned what I came here to learn. The exercises were great for walking us through skills. Sneha was amazing. She's very thorough and excellent at explaining the reasons behind what we're doing. There wasn't a problem she couldn't solve. She also created a wonderful learning environment and made me feel comfortable.
Very comprehensive lessons! Eugenio gives a rundown of Adobe Illustrator and touches on each tool to varying degrees in content-focused lessons. Eugenio is always friendly and knowledgeable - logging on for class is a joy!
