Adobe Essentials for 2D Jewellery Design: Beginner

COURSE OVERVIEW

Learn the fundamental skills you need for transferring your hand drawing abilities to Adobe Illustrator in order to produce eye-catching, fully rendered jewellery designs. Our Adobe Illustrator classes are ideal for working or aspiring jewellery designers looking to make a move into CAD, an invaluable skill for the contemporary jewellery industry. 

By the end of the programme, you will have an effective Adobe Illustrator workflow, enabling you to take your scanned jewellery drawings and transform them into hand-rendered jewellery images. 

Skills covered by the first part of the course include building and controlling basic shapes, controlling shading with gradients and using Illustrator’s Pathfinder, Align and Pen tools. The second part of the programme focuses on more advanced skills, culminating in the exploration of precision jewellery design techniques using Transform tools, tolerance considerations for jewellery, and exporting vector lines to laser engraving or 3D CAD.
