Illustrator Introduction /Design Bespoke...

All objectives were met and I learnt much more than I expected, many things I didn't even know existed on Illustrator. Really good and engaging course that felt like fun not hard work.

Designer - VillaNova Brand

The Trainer was brilliant and enthusiastic about the software, her method of teaching kept us all engaged all day.  I already knew Illustrator but learnt a lot more things to take back to the studio with me.  Today was good fun and we learnt useful things to do with colour, pattern, texture, repeats and a general knowledge of what all the tools do.

Adobe Illustrator Training...

'I recently used Curve and Learn for some Adobe Illustrator CS6 training and I would not hesitate in recommending their services. The Illustrator Trainer was very friendly and approachable and is quite obviously very passionate about what she does and has huge knowledge on the software - she tried to help with all of my questions and I came away feeling far more confident with the programme than when I started. Thank you!'
