Adobe Illustrator For Fashion and Textile Designers : Module 2

One Day Course

Overview

We've been training the London's top design houses and fashion retailers for many years. We've channelled that experience into a brand new suite of courses specifically created to ease the challenges faced by textile designers working in a digital world.

This one day course builds on the skills learned in the first module and enables designers to start using Illustrator to create more complex and technical flats and float designs in an intuitive and productive way.

This course is run as private tuition for one or more delegates. The content can be tailored to fit your requirements or those of a larger team of designers. If you wish to tailor this outline to your exact requirements, please call or email. You should have attended the first module of this course or have a similar level of experience.

  • Private Courses

    One to one tuition or a private group with just your colleagues. Your choice of duration, content and location. We can train at one of our centres or onsite with you wherever you are located.

    We offer a free consultation service to help work out every detail and build the perfect course for you.
