Book Description

This book provides easy to understand, step-by-step instructions and diagrams showing how to use Adobe Illustrator to create flat drawings, working drawings and storyboards for the fashion industry. Hand drawings are no longer good enough for an industry which demands increased productivity, profitability and accuracy. Adobe Illustrator enables the user to create clear and detailed drawings that satisfy the industryrsquo;s needs. Adobe Illustrator has become the industry standard, taking over from other software packages. Although Adobe Illustrator is a powerful CAD program, it is difficult to grasp quickly. This book provides the building blocks which enable fashion students and designers to get started quickly while learning the more sophisticated facilities as they become more fluent. Here they are shown simply, concisely and in a highly practical way all that new users need to know to begin to create acceptable work.

I am a CAD designer for a sportswear company and I work with illustrator and photoshop every day.I found the book very helpful in my work.It is good for reviewing applications as well as applying new ones. Everything is explained well and beautifully illustrated. My work has improved. A colleague at work also bought the book and is pleased with the results. I am very happy I bought the book and highly recommend it.

If you are a fashion professional who wants to learn how to use Illustrator this is the book to get! What I enjoyed the most is that this book teaches real world skills that you would need to know in the workplace not fluff that you wouldn't use.

I am so happy I invested in this book!
After 30 years in the fashion industry, I am finally required to use Illustrator for my job. I started teaching myself using another book of tutorials so
I know basic flat technical sketching but I get stuck on some techniques. This book explains so many things in very easy to understand and to follow
steps. I am working with a new fashion school grad and she is amazed with this book as well.
