Illustrator is easier than you think! Once you learn the basic editing of vectors, a whole new world of possibilities exist. For logo design it is not only powerful but essential as a professional graphic artist. I can help.
InDesign is where I put it all together. By using vector graphics created in Illustrator, raster images from Photoshop, and the rich text editing tools and layout features of InDesign I can teach students how to create professional looking designs for print and web. By using layer masks on images in Photoshop and importing them into InDesign one can even produce composite imagery right within the application. InDesign's blending features and vector tools enable a designer to achieve beautiful results. InDesign is capable of producing single or multi-page documents with output options from print to display to outdoor and even web. I have been using InDesign and its robust features almost daily for over 10 years as a professional graphic artist.
