Join William Everhart for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Illustrator: Package Design.
Now before we get started with the lessons here, I want to take a moment and just tell you a few things that you need to know, before you get started. First, this is an intermediate level course, so a working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator is a must. Among the things you should know about Illustrator are how to work with layers and artboards. How to manipulate color and add swatches, basic drawing and transforming of vector shapes, and finally, how to switch between Adobe workspaces.
Now speaking of workspaces, I have my own custom workspace that you will see throughout this course, and you can see it listed right up here with my name. Now, how did I come about with this? Well I just started with something like essentials, and then began to move panels around, adding and removing panels as necessary, to get the panels that I felt we would be using most often during this course. So I'll just bring this back so you can see that the panels that I choose to work with. And so I'll be sure to save this out and put it in the exercise file.
So if you have access to them, you can certainly download this, and use it for yourself. So now if you're ready, let's get started with Package Design with Illustrator.
