    I found the Intro to Adobe Illustrator course helpful and worthwhile. Laura, the instructor, was professional and knowledgeable on the subject. She was able to answer any questions I had and made learning the content easy. I enjoyed the flow of the course. I knew a few self-taught basics before this course, but Laura helped me fill in the gaps and gave me a sturdy foundation in Illustrator. I have a lot more confidence with using the software now. Thanks!

    Can't say enough great stuff about this class! Certainly got my money's worth and much more. Gregory Frank is a terrific instructor - extremely patient and explains the process of each exercise very thoroughly. He goes around one-on-one throughout the class to make sure each person is understanding the steps as we go through them. You will never feel "left behind." I was pleasantly shocked with how much we learned in the 2-day class. Because our class size was small, we even covered elements of Illustrator not laid out in the description - Bezier curves and creating text. Even if you have had no exposure to Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator in the past, Gregory Frank explains things in such a way that you can complete the exercises and feel very satisfied about what you learned.

Once they have designed the layout or design of the website in Illustrator, they will code the images into the website coding so they will appear. 

Fashion professionals can design their next big outfit using Illustrator. They can enlarge the outfit's image without losing its detail.

  • Graphic Design focuses on creating art and graphics that communicate meanings through digital and print media. Graphic Designers make an average of $50,000 annually across the United States. 
  • UI Design focuses on creating the appearance and feel of an application or webpage. Most UI Designers make around $95,000 annually.

  • Fashion Design designs patterns for clothes like dresses, shirts, and pants. On average, Fashion Designers across the United States make $60,000 annually.

You may see some differences from the above salaries based on your location or where a company is located. Here are a few examples of differences in salaries depending on area.

Chicago, Illinois, cost of living is 31% higher than the national average, with housing 52% higher than the average. Nashville, Tennessee, has a cost of living 2% lower than the national average, with housing costs only 6% higher. While these locations have varying living costs, they also vary in salaries. These salaries will depend on demand and tech industry levels in the area.

Graphic Designers in Chicago make an average of $55,000 annually, while those in Nashville see a large difference. Nashville Graphic Designers will make an average of $75,000 annually.

UI Designers in Chicago make around $60,000 annually, while in Nashville, they make around $110,000. 

For UX Designers in Chicago, they bring home $100,000. In Nashville, they make around $105,000.

Web Designers see another large difference in their annual salary depending on location. In Chicago, they make around $50,000; in Nashville, they make around $70,000. 

Fashion Designers in Chicago will make around $60,000 annually, while those in Nashville will make around $70,000. 

The two cities have varying degrees of demand for each of these professions. Chicago is more business focused, with several key industries surrounding the growth of technology. The majority of their jobs are within the tech industry or financial industry. While Illustrator professionals are still beneficial in these industries, they are not as common. This can increase the demand for these positions; however, most creative professionals will see out other industries that might have less demand in the Chicago area. 

Nashville puts most of its money into industries like art, entertainment, recreation, and manufacturing. Because of this, there is a higher demand for creative professionals in the area. A higher demand for professionals to fill these positions will create more competition and increase the area's average salary. 

So despite the higher cost of living in Chicago, creative professionals will struggle to find those higher salaries to match the cost of living. Of course, with remote jobs becoming more popular, they can seek creative positions in other cities that will pay a higher salary.
