Adobe Illustrator For Fashion and Textile Designers : Module 3

One Day Course

Overview

We've been training the London's top design houses and fashion retailers for many years. We've channeled that experience into a brand new suite of courses specifically created to ease the challenges faced by textile designers working in a digital world.

This one day course builds on the skills learned on the first two modules and turns an intermediate designer into a power user with complete control of the software as an aid to the design process.

This course is run as private tuition for one or more delegates. The content can be tailored to fit your requirements or those of a larger team of designers. If you wish to tailor this outline to your exact requirements, please call or email. You should have attended the first two modules module of this course or have a similar level of experience.

  • Private Courses

    One to one tuition or a private group with just your colleagues. Your choice of duration, content and location. We can train at one of our centres or onsite with you wherever you are located.

    We offer a free consultation service to help work out every detail and build the perfect course for you.

We know training inside out. We can advise you on all the options to make sure you get the best possible course.

Tell us you need to cancel 5 working days before your course and there’s no charge. Great for your peace of mind.

Our trainers bring their years of industry experience into the classroom. You'll leave confident and prepared.

The smallest class size in the industry. More one on one time with the trainer and a less intimidating group size.
