Individual needs will be catered for where possible. This course will be taught using the latest version of Adobe Illustrator/InDesign/Photoshop CC; the concepts covered are relevant to earlier versions too. Our courses are taught on Apple Mac computers; skills are directly transferable to Windows PCs. Where there are differences in the way the software works between the two systems, the tutor will point these out. A good working knowledge of Mac or PC systems is advantageous: we recommend attending our Introduction to Apple Mac course if you are new to the Apple Mac, before attending any of our digital courses.
