ATLANTA, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ledet Graphics Training, world-class provider of Adobe® and Apple® Authorized graphics training programs, today announced a new series of Vector Basic Training Boot Camps to help graphic designers and illustrators master the fine art of creating precise vector graphics in Adobe Illustrator. Conducted by renowned vector graphics expert Von Glitschka, the two-day workshops will help designers and illustrators improve the efficiency and quality of their logo designs.
The two-day Vector Basic Training (VBT) Boot Camps will be offered on the following schedule at these Ledet Graphics Training locations:
- Thursday and Friday, July 21-22 in Atlanta;
- Thursday and Friday, Sept. 22-23 in Park Ridge, Ill.; and
- Thursday and Friday, Oct. 27-28 in Washington, D.C.
"This course is a must for anyone who works in the graphic design business, and for any designer or illustrator who wants to hone their skills and equip themselves to achieve a higher level of craftsmanship in their work," said Sterling Ledet, founder of Ledet Graphics Training. "Von's systematic approach to vector building makes it easier and more precise for both new and experienced designers who want to master this critical skill."
Based on Glitschka's highly acclaimed book, "Vector Basic Training: A Systematic Creative Process for Building Precision Vector Artwork," the hands-on course will guide participants through a systematic process for developing vector form graphics using both analog (hand-drawn) methods and digital methods with the use of Adobe Illustrator. A fully-equipped iMac including the software, plugins and source files required, as well as an iPad for enhanced learning during the course, will be provided by Ledet.
Using the methods showcased in Glitschka's Vector Basic Training book, attendees will learn the creative process of taking a drawn form and building it precisely in vector format.
Course attendees will take away various examples that are featured in the VBT book, all source files used throughout the course and helpful scripts Glitschka has developed that plugin to Illustrator to make vector-based file management more efficient.
"Even if you've already read the book, this course will provide a powerful hands-on opportunity to explore these methods in a collaborative environment," Glitschka said. "Designers will come away with tools to expand their creativity and build more sophisticated and precise vector graphics."
Registration for the three VBT Boot Camps is on a first-come, first-served basis and class size is limited to 12 participants at each location. For more information on the VBT Boot Camp agenda or to register, visit http://goo.gl/y96mw.
