Basic Digital Design – Intro to Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign
This course is the little Swiss Army Knife of graphic design programs. The course runs ten weeks (Tuesdays, 6:30-9:30pm, NSCC IT Campus, Leeds Street – starts Sept 27) and covers the basic operations of three industry standard design applications. This is a “just the facts” course; there are no lectures in design philosophy or colour theory, just elementary application operation and tool use. This a “discussion” class, not a lecture series, so students are encouraged to ask questions and have a plenty of fun with their learning.
The first class begins with a tour of the Adobe application general interface, then moves into basic operations of the “Big Three” (AI, PS, ID). The class also takes a look at some auxiliary programs of like Camera Raw and Adobe Bridge. The following classes then take on Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign for three nights each, providing a useful, fun introduction into the wonderful world of graphic design. These applications are the backbone of the industry and a little knowledge can often lead to bigger things!
