Description of Essentials for Adobe Illustrator CC for Beginners

I’ve used Illustrator for years as a freelance graphic designer, and I’ve also used Illustrator when I was Internet Development Director at an award-winning advertising design firm. While I was Managing Editor of two international graphic design magazines, one of the magazines I oversaw focused on Illustrator.
For the past eight years, as I’ve continued freelance work, I’ve taught students Illustrator and logo design in classes such as Layout and Design, as a full-time university professor.

Very good Essentials for Adobe Illustrator CC for Beginners course in terms of tools using. It will be much more helpful if you can provide an assessment or a complete project after every section.
The “Essentials” setting for layout isn’t the same on my 2020 PC version of illustrator. I noticed there is a “Essentials Classic,” so I tried that, and it matches the layout that is showing on the screen in the course. I think this is an update that should be added.
It was good. I work in illustrator every day, but still have learned about some new tools and techniques that I can now use in my work
