Class Layout


Mondays/Wednesdays in room BE3161 from 1:00-2:30pm.


Here are our priorities:

  • Survey of Illustrator on PC for illustration, layout, wireframe, and creativity work
  • Efficient project planning and workflow
  • Takeaways for future reuse and potential portfolio samples
  • Efficient communications and interactions with each other and clients


At this point, we'll be primarily an assignment/task-based class, although there will be two short quizzes and good attendance/participation is important.


In most cases I'll chat and demo stuff at the beginning of class, set up assignment goals, and see if we can tuck in at least a few minutes per class for working/questions. I'll also aim for one or two short breaks so our minds don't implode.


I'll make sure we all have the basics and are on the same page as we go. I will also will spend a little time in setting up each assignment, with


  • The objectives,
  • Tips and tricks
  • How the assignment fits in the real world, and
  • How to approach it
