- [Instructor] In this course, UX Design Tools Illustrator, you'll dive into the features I find very useful for web and app design projects. That includes topics like setting up your files, this includes creating artboards, working with documents, working with grids and guides. Working with text and shapes, not just the basics of creating shapes, but working with text formatting like styles, working with global swatches and a whole lot more. Creating usable artwork and formatting, this is where we're going to get a little fancy and make it so that we can reuse content, and work smarter, essentially.
Working with symbols, working with graphic styles, and a lot more. Organizing your content, being able to set up layer content, being able to work with artboards to show things like states, just doing a lot of different things. Exporting, being able to export what you see in Illustrator as PDF, or even export individual assets when it comes to that time. And then a little bit about beyond Illustrator, so to speak. This is taking what you've done in Illustrator, perhaps, and going to another program, like an Adobe XD, or Experience Design, or taking your design and going in prototyping.
A lot of times, Illustrator is just a step in the process that we have for designing a website or an app.
