Minimal productivity is something that we all should strive to achieve. It’s very easy to get completely overwhelmed with the amount of systems, apps and planners that have been created over the past few years but the best system is the one you consistently use. Efficiency is very hard to measure in the productivity community; the creators of new apps, methods and knowledge systems will always assure you that their system is the best system, but that’s impossible, and it’s impossible because although people have a lot of things in common when it comes to data processing and habit building, everyone is dramatically different and that means that a universal productivity system that is able to seamlessly apply to everyone, is literally impossible to achieve.

I’m an designer, Adobe Certified Instructor & Adobe Certified Expert.
Together we’re going to learn how to use Adobe Illustrator. During our course we won’t just learn how to use the tools… we will create real world, practical projects together.
This course is aimed at people new to Illustrator & design in general. We’ll start right at the beginning, working our way through step by step.
We’ll start with the techniques you’ll need to create just about everything in Illustrator. Including icons, logos, postcards & hand drawn illustrations.
We’ll explore lines & brushes. You’ll master how to use and manipulate type. I’ll show you the clever secrets Illustrator has which will help you to discover & use beautiful color like a pro.
You’ll learn how to push, pull, cut & repeat artwork. You’ll learn how to redraw real world examples of famous logos. We’ll cover the essentials like correct saving & exporting along with so, so much more.
If you’ve never opened Illustrator before, or you’ve opened it and struggled, come with me, I’ll show you the easy way to make beautiful artwork. – Dan
