How to Get Skilled in Illustrator in just over a Week - Guaranteed
If you currently work in video editing, fashion design, web design, graphic design or just want to make your own illustrations; our Illustrator Essentials Hybrid workshop has you covered.
Have you tried to learn software online ??
This is how it usually goes..
Start by watching random YouTube clips - very hit and miss and time consuming with no guarantee that it'll show you how to do what YOU want
Sign up for an online course - usually you have to watch hours of tutorials before you get to the 3 or 4 things you really want to know. What if you just have a couple of questions ??
You have some questions so you try the online forums - you post your question then get 15 conflicting responses and eventually the thread becomes a geek fest with no one actually helping YOU.
Finally you end up just making do and never get your questions fully answered..
Or if you go to a LIVE Workshop
IT'S LIKE THIS..
You struggle to see the Instructors screen and by the time you get a chance to try something the instructor has moved on
You desperately jot down notes and keyboard shortcuts, only to find it all gibberish when you come to actually use it
A week after the course you can barely remember any of it because you had no time to actually implement any of the material.
Time to go back to online training again !!
If any of these sound familiar then check out our NEW very cost effective HYBRID training solution..
