I just finished the 2-day Adobe Illustrator course. The course was one of the better computer software courses I have taken. The instructor, Eugenio, took the time to find out about us and tailor much of what we covered to our interests and needs. He gave welcome advice on where we should go next and what we should investigate to further our knowledge and our careers. Eugenio knew Adobe Illustrator inside and out so when I pressed the wrong keys, he knew exactly what I had done and got me on track again without numerous explanations. We were on the computer from the very first minute until the last; he walked us through each assignment. I particularly like that NYIM has the computers and the software on site for use (no need to bring your own). Loved the coffee available upon arrival on a Sunday morning!

I took a two-day Adobe Illustrator course here and found it well worth my time. Eugenio was the instructor and covered everything I was looking for, and more. The class was small, so he made extra effort to make sure our individual needs were met. His teaching style is mostly hands-on, and very quick, which I find to be helpful in courses like this, where there's a ton to learn and you really just need an overview. He had many examples to test out the tools in real time, printed takeaway material, and his contact information for questions later. If you're looking for a beginner to intermediate course on Illustrator, I'd definitely recommend NYIM, especially with Eugenio. Bring ideas and questions if you want more personalized help - there's time allotted for this.

Graphic Design is visual communication through artwork or combined images and text. Both print and digital designers often use the same processes and Adobe programs including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. Graphic designers create product packaging, advertising materials in print and digital formats, logos, and much more. Print designers typically create brochures, business cards, product packaging, subway banners, books, and other physical products or documents.

To stand out among the pack of designers, many designers are adding motion design to their portfolio. The most important part of motion design is choosing what to animate and when. Motion designers combine graphics, sound, motion, and visual design techniques to create more compelling visuals.
Adobe After Effects is used to animate graphics and text, while Premiere Pro edits video. A growing field within motion design is web animation. Web animators use GreenSock to animate pictures, paragraphs, and any other element on a website. Adobe Photoshop is also used for web animation, specifically to create simple animated GIFs. For more complex animated GIFs, After Effects is also used. Animated GIFs are often used in HTML Email.
A UX designer is a “people person” that focuses on the needs of users to enhance a product (website, app, etc). Rather than designing graphics, UX designers conduct user research, create and test ideas with prototypes, and do user testing to see how things perform. They communicate these insights to visual designers and developers.
User experience research takes many forums. UX designers observe customers interacting with a product and conduct interviews to understand their needs. UX designers also use stealth research methods like the A/B testing to test out different experiences to see how they perform in the real world, allowing them to see which perform best.

UI or Visual designers work with UX designers to design visuals for websites, apps, and more. They determine the colors, typography, and appearance based on insights gained from the UX design process. Visual designers typically use Sketch (available on Mac only), Adobe XD, or Photoshop to lay out web pages.
