- [Voiceover] Hi there, my name is Mordy Golding and I'd like to welcome you to Creating Infograhics with Adobe Illustrator. You know, at first blush, math and design seem to be polar opposites. But when carefully brought together the result is often a powerful image that clearly conveys information in a beautiful way. Readers are mesmerized and become engrossed in the details, making it possible to communicate a large amount of information to audiences across both print and interactive mediums.
Int this course, we'll start by exploring some key concepts that will help you understand what it takes to build beautiful and effective infographics. Then, we'll dive into Illustrator and discover the often misunderstood and underused graph and charting features. Finally, we'll work together on a project, building an infographic step by step, so that you can get some real world experience while you learn. Join me as we learn all about creating beautiful infographics with Adobe Illustrator.
