Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

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 industry'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.

Format: Paperback
My teacher for Illustrator and Photoshop reasons that you can't like one program better than the other. I agree with him... personally, I hate both equally. BUT, it seems computers are a necessary evil in the fashion design world now, so I selected the first edition of this book from my school library. YAY! Very easy to follow instructions and a few 'cheats' that we weren't taught in our class. Doesn't speak 'computer-ese', uses everyday english to teach. I'm ordering the new version to keep on hand in case I ever need it for my further forays into fashion design.
