  • Christopher: "I just finished this course. I had ZERO experience with a Ai and I feel that this would have been the best path to get familiar with the software. Not only was I new to Ai I was also new to the Mac I purchased specifically for this software. The explanations were spot on especially when explaining the command differences between Mac and PC."

Arthur8 October 2020

La personnalité, la voix, les explications tout fonctionne pour une bonne compréhension, et un bon moment en sa compagnie

Rebecca6 October 2020

Really clear instructions presented at a pace that I could follow and an enjoyable activity to follow along and do.

BatEl6 October 2020

It's a good course, I have learned some good basic skills to use Ai so I'm happy about that. I don't think Section 11 is necessary or at least not in the way it is presented, I would prefer more exercises and less "this is how I did it" videos - though there were some useful tips there that were not covered earlier.

Olinka6 October 2020

I begin with adobe photoshop classes and the experienced user one, doing this one I found a lot of similarity between all the courses. I like Dan courses, he is a good teacher to get into the courses but all the similarity will be problematic for me if it's also present in other of his courses.

Michelle27 February 2020

I think it's going to be great, as I was very happy with photoshop essentials, but the line tool in 2020 is different than in the video so I found a "how to draw a line" article. LOL. Now I'm unsure where the "arrange" took off to. So I'll have to look that up also I think. But I'm sure I'll love it. I just have to get over myself.

Nik27 February 2020

Excellent course -tonnes of valuable information and a large practical element means you easily get a good grasp of Illustrator on this course. The information is never overwhelming and Dan's style is really likeable

Jed26 February 2020

This course struck just the right balance between showing me enough to really get going in Illustrator, but not so much that it was overwhelming. The hands-on exercises and the walkthroughs were all great. And Dan is really fun to listen to. It's nice to have an instructor that's really fun. Thanks Dan!

Marija26 February 2020

I enjoyed this first exercise very much & I learned how to use the basic tools in an easy and fun way.

Dimitri26 February 2020

I haven't arc tool in my panel. So I found the information myself. It didn't take me that much time, but it would be cool, to have this information.

Lynn23 February 2020

Honestly? I was frustrated at first because Dan goes very quickly. HOWEVER...when I woke up and remembered that I could STOP the video (duh) to catch up and repeat it over and over...I fell in love. 2 summers ago I paid $800 for a live online course with GDI. The instructor was awful and I learned basically nothing except how frustrated I could become when I got lost. Dan's approach and methodology is excellent. And how smart to go at the speed he does for users who are looking to refresh without getting bored. I'm half way through and over all - this has been an outstanding experience so far. I'm really understanding this software and I'm very excited.

Jerry22 February 2020

Illustrator was the program I wanted to learn the most but was also the most intimidated by. This course made it easy to understand and has made me much more confident to design my own images.

Naomi21 February 2020

I am thoroughly enjoying this course. Everything is explained beautifully and I'm actually retaining all the information I'm gaining. Fun assignments. I highly recommend anyone who's a complete beginner to AI to take this course.

Zoe20 February 2020

Really easy to follow, no jargon or overly complicated technical words used. Tutor is being real and human and not trying to show their superiority!

Emre20 February 2020

Even if your English is not super you can understand the trainer well. The course is good nough for beginners but could be more detailed. We cannot get the usage of all tools. Do I recommend the course? Yes
