Profijt

Heb al wel superveel profijt van de cursus! Zowel thuis als op werk :) Ben allerlei dingen aan het maken ermee.
M. de P.

Zeer degelijk

Dit is een zeer degelijke cursus die goed de basis van Illustrator uit de doeken doet. De sfeer is goed en nodigt uit om vragen en opmerkingen te plaatsen waar ook goed en professioneel op wordt gereageerd. Het cursusmateriaal is uitgebreid en de oefeningen sluiten aan op de behandelde stof. Het huiswerk sluit ook aan op de afgelopen lessen en zijn van goed niveau, zelfs voor de mensen die al wat ervaring hebben met Illustrator. Het vergt wel een paar uur per week om het huiswerk te maken maar het heeft dan ook tot doel om routine op te bouwen.
Tot slot; de geboden faciliteiten zijn goed en er zijn mogelijkheden om met de verschillende versies van Illustrator (CS3/4/5)) te werken.Kortom; deze cursus is de prijs meer dan waard!

Professional training

This school is so different that I hope they will stay this way for ever and not grow into one of those fast-school facilities. Professional training, personal coaching and homework corrections. What more do I need? Thanks miss, had to get used to your sense of humor but wow!
W. Young

Eindelijk leuk

Ik ben al op meerdere scholen geweest, het moest er snel, het moet met standaard materiaal, er is geen begeleiding... Eindelijk vind ik naar school gaan leuk en vooral inspirerend en leerzaam! Deze school is een echte aanrader!
Neil Jurgens

Net begonnen

Ik ben net begonnnen met deze cursus maar het bevalt me nu al goed! Ik krijg na deze twee lessen elke keer trouw antwoord op mijn vragen. Had ik niet verwacht, heel erg bedankt en sorry dat ik zoveel vragen stel!
M. Sluizer

Inspirational

Illustrator is a very extensive application and I must say I dreaded the course. But due to the teacher's patience I found the course to be not only clear and helpful but truly inspirational. I am looking forward to the advanced course.
Bette Lawson

Patience with the pen

I really lost heart when the pen tool was addressed. I didn't understand it at all. Due to the teacher's patience and clear responses I finally got it and I must say I truly enjoy using it now. Excellent course!
Amanda Reyes

Top!

Geweldige cursus! Zo uitgebreid en praktisch. De begeleiding is zeer goed. Ik heb uiteindelijk 3 cursussen gevolgd. Ik ontwerp voor mijn eigen bedrijf en nu doe ik alLessondigitaal en ben zo onafhankelijk van andere ontwerpers. Top! Ga zo door.
Yisa Lin-Ting

Saturated

I learned not only the basics but even features used by professionals. The course was saturated with incredibly useful information. Thanks!

AlLessonafgevinkt

De cursus is heel goed en professioneel. Ik heb voor de cursus een lijst gemaakt van alLessonwat ik wilde leren tijdens deze cursus en heb alLessonkunnen afvinken.
E. van H.

Ontzettend duidelijk

Ik ben echt zeer tevreden over de inhoud van de cursus die ik heb gevolgd. Naar mijn idee wordt de beschikbare tijd zeer nuttig gebruikt tijdens de lessen. Het lesmateriaal is zo ontzettend duidelijk dat je er genoeg aan hebt om alLessonthuis nog eens door te nemen en vervolgens de huiswerkopdrachten te maken. Mij sprak het tempo wel aan, het gaf me het gevoel dat ik snel en veel leerde.
Ook ben ik zeer te spreken over het feit dat ik steeds zo snel een reactie ontving per email als ik huiswerk toestuurde of iets te vragen had.
Aimée Hoen

Er werkelijk iets aan hebben

Lessonkrijgen en weten dat je er ook werkelijk iets aan gehad hebt. Dit stimuleert enorm. Geweldig lesmateriaal!!!

Cursus: eye-opener

Deze cursus is een echte eye-opener. Ik kan nu al mijn ontwerpen digitaliseren wat een hoop tijd scheelt. Bedankt voor de goede begeleiding!
Janneke van Bremen

Bedankt

Ik kijk sinds ik met de eerste cursus begon heel anders naar de wereld en ontdek steeds meer dingen die met Illustrator zijn gemaakt. Het is zo opvallend! En het mooiste is: ik heb er nu werk mee gevonden. Heel erg bedankt!

Great, people!

Thanks for the course. Really inspiring. I am coming back for more courses. Great, people!

Hard werken

Het was hard werken zeg. Maar alle moeite waard! Ik heb er echt tijd voor moeten maken en gelukkig werd me op het werk ook de ruimte gegeven om dat te doen. Ik gebruik het nu in mijn functie van webdesigner en maak de nieuwsbrieven en presentaties op. Echt te gekke cursus!
Joris van Barneveld

Ideaal

Ik had deze cursus nodig voor mijn positie als marketing manager. We krijgen regelmatig Illustrator fiLessontoegestuurd ter revisie. Tot op heden waren dergelijke bestanden abracadabra voor mij. Nu niet meer. Ik redigeer en wijzig alLessondirect en kan instructies geven aan de editors overzee. Ideaal!
Linda d. J.

Illustrator Bijbel

Leerzame cursus, met duidelijke uitleg en uitgebreid naslagwerk ( een soort illustrator bijbel ).
Ik heb met heel veel plezier de cursus gevolgd !
H.M. V.

Dwarfed

I though this course would be easy, I have worked with Illustrator for a few years now. I stepped into your class room with a big ego. I am now dwarfed! But I love it ;)
Andrew Delaney

Illustreren

Al jaren was ik creatief bezig en ik wilde dit uitbreiden naar digitaal tekenwerk. Dat lukt me nu heel goed. Ik kan mijn eigen tekeningen mooi opmaken in Illustrator en ze bovendien van tekst voorzien. Ik ben echt heel blij met deze cursus. En wat een prachtig naslagwerk.
Merel de Jonge

Combine Illustrator with other programs and disciplines. Illustrator is great to design websites, Photoshop adds extras to your Illustrator designs, your Illustrator drawings can be animated in flash or used in InDesign.

Leer Illustrator, Photoshop, Indesign, Dreamweaver en Flash

Illustrator & Photoshop

In practice you will usually combine Illustrator with Photoshop to make your Illustrator designs 'softer', to use Illustrator patterns in Photoshop (or the other way round) or to combine illustrations and infographics with photographic images. You can create the most beautiful backgrounds in Photoshop and use these in Illustrator and isolate photo elements in Photoshop to use them in Illustrator. You can not edit images in Illustrator, you can only do this in Photoshop. Removing spots and blemishes? You really will need Photoshop.

TIPIt is advisable to know both Photoshop and Illustrator.
Photoshop course.

Illustrator & InDesign

InDesign is often promoted as a creative application. And although creative layout techniques are wonderful, InDesign can not be used to illustrate. The combination of Illustrator and InDesign is one you will often need.

Use Illustrator to create text dividers, for one, and logos. Or to create special text balloons and clever special elements. Need a background pattern? No problem, you quickly create it in Illustrator.

Illustrator will be incredibly useful. And the other way round: as an Illustrator user you will benefit from InDesign's tricks. InDesign and Illustrator: they really go well together.

TIPInDesign and Illustrator form a very powerful combination you will often use.

The difference with photoshop
What is resolution independent

What is Adobe Illustrator?

Illustrator is Adobe application, just like Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash and InDesign. Illustrator has been around since the nineties of the previous century. As time progressed Illustrator has developed into a wonderful environment in which great graphics can be created. You are going to explore most options in Illustrator during our Illustrator Course and Illustrator Course Advanced.

In Illustrator you use vectors. Vectors are at the heart of resolution independant artwork. It is a great application to create flyers, posters and business cards and also, as the name suggests, to create illustrations. it is the standard in the world of design to create and edit digital illustrative material.

During our Illustrator Course you will learn how to add and edit text, to create illustrations, how to add graphics to combine all this artwork into a perfect design.

Is Illustrator difficult?

Illustrator can be intimidating because in Illustrator, you create everything from scratch. You have to know different tools to create exactly what you want. But difficult? Not when you learn it at LearningTrain. We are here every step of the way. With our special lesson material with step by step exercises even the most complex and technical things are fun to learn, you will learn it all.

You will need time to practise, of course. And by doing your homework and looking at your personal homework corrections you will learn al there is to know to create everything you need. The courses are well balanced, you will absolutely be successful.

Do I have know how to draw?

Not really. It depends on what you want to do. For instance, you could have a job that requires you to adjust artwork created by others. Or to simply change colours in shoe models.

But if you want to illustrate, chances are you are better at drawing than you think. And even if you're not a professional illustrator, you will have fun. One of the best things happened when a student finished her Photoshop Education and wanted to become a professional designer. She realized she would need to learn Illustrator too. She told me (LearningTrain founder) she didn't feel like it at all and gave me an somewhat angry look, clearly unhappy.
To my (and her!) surprise, she sent me something after the second class, filled with joy. Her first illustration and she loved it. As a matter of fact... She loved it so much she also attended the Advanced course. Well done Mariska!

What can I do with Adobe Illustrator?

 

Design business cards, logos, posters
Adobe Illustrator is used to create digital artwork. You can for instance use it to create business cards and posters. Even smaller brochures can be created in Illustrator. Illustrator is also used to design websites, logos and technical drawings.

Combine different things? Illustrator!
In Illustrator you can combine illustrations (based on vectors) with text and digital images (based on pixels). Think of a big poster with huge text and self-made illustrations with a big image in it.

Illustrator is at the heart of everything you need to create free and fabulous designs and is the program of choice of every creative.

Illustrator for fashion, styling
In Illustrator you can trace your sketches and patterns to create crisp vector artwork. This makes adjusting colours and using special fills a fun and exciting thing todo.

Designers in the world of fashion and styling love Illustrator and it helps them saving a lot of time. More and more fashion designers are switching to Illustrator and make the move from Canvas to the world of Illustrator.

Looking for a job in this industry you can hardly miss any Illustrator skills: LearningTrain has by now trained students from many fashion companies. Think of Tommy Hillfiger, McGregor and Levi's for instance, or Mexx, America Today, CoolCat, Sissiyboy and Hunkemolller.

Free illustrations
Illustrator is also used to create free illustrations. The program after all is not called Illustrator for nothing. With Illustrator, you create special illustrations and designs you can use in images and of course in InDesign: in InDesign, you add them to the design of books and magazines.

Graphs
Creating graphs in Illustator is very simple and you can learn different ways to create and edit them. You can change the colours on the fly and you will learn what to pay attention to when you are creating them, such as the right colours for the colour blind.

When do I need an Illustrator course?

Fashion and styling

The fashion industry is an important user: it is easy to design and present models in Illustrator and the drawings are crisp and perfect. Adding stitches, patterns, creating technical drawings: everything can be done in Illustrator.

Illustrators, artists

As an illustrator you will probably love Illustrator. You can be asked to produce digital material and want to trace your own scans and drawings. This can all be done in Illustrator, then allowing you to change colours, create colour schemes and much, much more.

To add to the real 'drawing sensation' you can even use a Wacom pen: drawing made fun.

pattern designers

Pattern designers love Illustrator. It is often used to trace patterns and to create perfectly repeating patterns. Playing with colour and using seasonal colour schemes and Pantone, for instance, can all be done in Illustrator.

Architects, gardeners, contractors

Another big user group is formed by architects, city planners and garden designers, for instance. They often use CAD and frankly, what comes out of CAD needs some revamping if it has to be presented to clients. With some Illustrator extras the design is made much more attractive for your clients which will make it much easier to sell.

And many more

Many different types of students have so far attended the Illustrator courses. They all put Illustrator to good use. They create models, for instance, for the shoes industry. Others create medical illustrations.

Some students create infographics for use in company flow charts, others design interfaces for apps and websites. They design flyers and designs that can be used in InDesign and Photoshop.

Illustrator will surprise you with it's flexibility and versatility. .

Which course should I choose?

Starting from scratch

You will often enjoy starting at the beginning, even if you have been using Illustrator for a while you will learn lots of handy tricks and things that might save you a lot of time.

You will learn how to use lots of tools and functions and you will use, among other things, pencil and brush, masking techniques and special transformation functions. You will use type in many different ways to help you create layouts for business cards for instance, and for posters and flyers. You can do a lot with text in Illustrator, it is fantastic to discover this.

At the end of the course you can work independently.

To start at the beginning, select one of the following courses.

The basics are the same for all these courses: you need to know the tools to get started. After these first steps the examples are more branche-specific.

Cursus Illustrator vragen.

Do you know who this is? Indirectly, he has something to do with Illustrator. Find out about this during one of the Illustrator courses..

What is resolution independent artwork?

Resolution independent artwork is artwork that can be scaled (resized) without quality loss. In Illustrator you use vectors to draw and create artwork. Vectors are at the heart of resolution independent designs: you can upscale and they will not get blurry, in contrast to what happens when you scale something in Photoshop. This is, of course, a terrific quality..

Vectors                          Pixels

There are of course lots of things to be aware of if you want to create truly resolution independent artwork. Learn all about that during the Advanced and Expert courses. This will help you creating files that are perfect for print and different media.

The difference with photoshop

The biggest difference is that Photoshop mostly uses pixels while Illustrator uses mostly vectors. Vectors can be scaled without quality loss. If you make a design bigger in Photoshop it will turn into an ugly smudge.

Another difference is that you can create powerful combinations in Illustrator, using vectors, text and even pixel-based (raster) files. Think of a poster in which you use a huge photo, adding big text and personal artwork. Doing this in Photoshop takes much more time and is more limited.

In Photoshop, you edit photographic material such as images from your digital camera and scans. You can not do this in Illustrator, you will need Photoshop to do this.
