Adobe Illustrator for Fashion:

This Adobe Illustrator course will give you a strong grounding in the tools and features of the programme, progressing to teaching you how to produce vector flat design drawings of garments and accessories for spec sheets. Emphasis will be placed on learning to use the pen tool to draw designs freehand and also to trace hand-drawn designs and scanned surface textile designs and photographs. You will learn how to use the colour tools to create customised colour harmony palettes and design ranges in multiple colourways. Furthermore, you'll arrange your designs with text annotations in a spec sheet and export them in PDF and other formats for distribution. Finally you will learn how to use Adobe smartphone apps for iPhone and Android to capture colour themes, brushes and shapes that can be used in your Illustrator design details and patterns.
