About the course

The “vector graphics from scratch” course is aimed at anyone wishing to learn how to create vector graphics. When learning digital graphics apps, most people end up in bitmap programs such as Photoshop first and get used to working with rich visuals. Once the need for clean visuals and vectors arises, the learning vector programs such as Illustrator becomes a must. People usually find it quite a challenge as drawing is initially somewhat counterintuitive. However, once you get to grips with the basics—and give yourself time to practice—vector graphics and their creation becomes an extra tool in your toolbox for graphic and web design, or any other creative endeavour. This course aims to help you along in your journey into vectors, hoping to enthuse you with the clean and beautiful lines.
