Students use Adobe Illustrator to create and manipulate vector graphic images into personal artwork and commercial output. Students generate effective typography and vector shapes, utilize a variety of color palettes and libraries, develop unique brushes and patterns, and convert raster images into vector art. Through hands-on instruction and multiple projects, students transform objects, manipulate perspective, utilize blends and gradients, understand the differences between CMYK and RGB, and import and export different graphic file formats.
