Target Audience

This class is a good fit for:

  • Beginners without previous design experience who want to learn Illustrator.
  • Marketers, fashion designers, and other professionals looking to add Illustrator to their skill sets.
  • Graphic designers who want to refresh on or learn Illustrator for digital design.

This certificate program is for anyone who wants to learn design apps (such as InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator), develop graphic design skills (learn about color, composition, etc), and start building their design portfolio. It’s a good fit for:

  • Those who want to get started as a graphic designer.
  • Anyone who needs to create graphics or marketing materials for businesses. Business owners, people in marketing, or anyone in a company that works with the creation of marketing materials can benefit from design skills. Better looking design can lead to more sales. Not having to hire outside design firms can speed up projects and give you more control.
  • Beginning designers who want to round out their technical skills (by getting better with the design apps) and improve their graphic design skills to be a better designer.
  • Designers who have been away from the design field for a while and want to get back to being hands-on with the design apps, update their skills, and create an updated portfolio of design work.
