Adobe Illustrator’s powerful toolset makes it a valuable resource in the graphic designer’s portfolio. Used for everything from fine art and technical illustration to print layout to website interface design, strong Illustrator skills will provide you a distinct advantage in the professional graphic design market.

The projects in this book were designed to represent realistic assignments in a professional workflow. As you complete the various exercises, you will learn to:

  • Combine and edit basic shapes to create complex illustrations.

  • Use time-saving assets such as symbols and libraries to improve your workflow.
  • Create graphic and CSS assets for a web design workflow directly within Illustrator.
