Check out these 6 Awesome Brit and Co Adobe Illustrator Classes for Printable Design! If you want to design printables for profit, for classrooms, or just because, these classes will help you become a pro!
When I started college, I didn’t think I could make the art program, so I didn’t go to school for design. I realize now how short-sighted I was and I should have at least tried…because design is my calling. Friends, if you have a desire to learn how to design in Adobe Illustrator, I implore you to TRY. These Brit and Co Adobe Illustrator Classes are great for learning to design so you can create printables, but you can also design home decor, custom illustrations, or even logos with these techniques.
I ended up teaching myself how to design in Adobe Illustrator. At the time, online courses were not readily available, and because I taught myself, I knew so many people would benefit from my Basic Adobe Illustrator Course.
The following classes are great on their own, but if you are just starting out with design, I highly recommend taking a basic course before your get started, then you can jump in on the more fun aspects of design, like illustration and text effects!
