To meet the demands of individuals and organizations for flexible, reusable, and easily modified visual content, Adobe Systems has created a cadre of applications that collectively provide a scalable, end-to-end solution for nearly every type of visual design project one can contemplate. Called Creative Suite 6 (CS6), the collection of applications perform specialized design tasks while interoperating among each other to deliver superlative content.

This course focuses on Illustrator CS6, the component within CS6 used to create ?drawn? graphics, while enabling its users to integrate content from other domains (such as photo-oriented graphics and animation, which belong to Photoshop and Flash). With Illustrator's many, easily used tools, you will discover that not only can you unlock the same creative impulses you've always had as you've picked up a pencil to sketch out an idea, but also capture those multiple ideas and ?what ifs? during the creative process in ways that you never imagined. And for those of you who are just embarking on building your creative skills, you will be surprised at ?how good? your work will appear even at the outset of your exploration of the world of graphic design.
