Infographics : Design with Illustrator

One Day Course


Infographics are a powerful marketing tool which allow data to be presented visually and with great impact.

This one day course is designed for those who wish to create Infographics using Adobe Illustrator. The one day course will teach you to create simple icons, how to import and adapt ready made graphics, to create charts and graphs and how to layout your infographic and add text.

If you want to create graphics and drawings in Adobe Illustrator to incorporate in your infographics you should take our two day Introduction to Illustrator course as this will provide a more in-depth understanding of Illustrators drawing and design functions.

We also run a one day Infographics Introduction course which teaches you to find the story in your data and to decide on the Infographics content, message, design and format of an infographic.
You need no previous experience to attend this course.
