Adobe Creative Suite | UEWD.X420

Adobe Creative Suite is the industry standard for the production of professional graphics used by graphic, web and interface designers, administrative professionals, photographers, artists, editors, social media marketers, and creative hobbyists. In this class, we will navigate the dense interface of menus, tools, options, panels, keyboard helpers, and fundamental concepts as your graphics reach a new level of creativity.

Implementing the design process in this class provides opportunity for creative development of a unique identity. Students are introduced to software skills via demonstration, participation and hands-on exercises. Create a logo using vector-based graphics with Adobe Illustrator. Engage in photography and photo editing with Adobe Photoshop. Develop a page layout with Adobe InDesign that tells your story. Students will see how these three powerful applications work seamlessly together in a symphony of visual communication.


Learning Outcomes:
At the end of the course, students should be able to

  • Manage a project’s workflow by integrating Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign in unison. Complete a project that leverages all three applications using tools, techniques, options, keyboard helpers, panels and menus.
