I am such a huge fan of Dan's courses and the way he teaches! (I am just buying every course he makes, almost :D) Every class is so engaging and fun! Not to forget, the knowledge Dan offers is just incredible! I am so happy I found his courses here - i would rate him as probably THE BEST instructor ever!!! Thank you so much!!!

Personalmente, me encanta la forma de enseñar y de explicar de Dan. Desde ahora cuando necesite mejorar alguna herramienta de diseño, será el primer profesor que busque. Tiene algunos cursos de relleno (repetidos de otros cursos), pero no es nada comparado con la gran cantidad de contenido que ofrece, tips, hotkeys, etc. Además, tiene buena mano en diseño gráfico, lo que se agradece por montones.

Loving it. These are practical issues that I have come across heaps of times and they can be tiny, but frustrating. I may not remember all the shortcuts but at least I know they exist and can go find them. It's not like I'll be stuck there going 'they should really make a way of doing this easier' (with colourful language added if I'm on a deadline). It was great when Dan had the issue with the sectors that wouldn't respond to the shape builder tool (it's validating to see that an expert can be stumped sometimes) and also that he went away and found the solution. I also like that he's a perfectionist and shows how to get that professional finish.

Hi there, welcome to this Adobe Illustrator advanced tutorial.
My name is Dan. I’m an ACI & ACE for Illustrator.
This course is a more advanced look at Illustrator. It’s not designed for people who are brand new to Illustrator.
This course is for people who can already understand the fundamentals of Illustrator. If you already know what an anchor point is and how to adjust it this course is for you.
This course will speed up your productivity & workflow. It is project based, so you will learn the tools & tricks to create some really beautiful current design styles.
Even if you consider yourself an experienced user, I promise there will be things in here that will blow your Illustrator mind.
You’ll learn advanced anchor point & pen tool tricks. There is a really fun section on mastering lines & strokes. You’ll learn the quick way to take hand drawn sketches and vectorize & color them.
You’ll master depth & perspective in Illustrator, creating semi-flat presentations. We’ll set permanent defaults for fonts, colours & learn how to turn hyphenation off once and for all.
We’ll make beautiful charts & graphs for your indesign documents. There is a colour mastery section where you will learn to make quick colour adjustments, gradients meshs & how to blend it all together.
Your creativity will be doubled once you finish the transform, distort & blending section of the course.
There is an entire section dedicated to learning how to speed up your personal workflow & how to speed up Illustrator and get it running super fast.
If you’re ok in Illustrator but you know there is so much more in there to be unlocked then please join me and become an Illustrator super hero.
