While many aspiring designers consider Photoshop to be the industry standard, Adobe has created an entire suite of design software for a reason. Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator serve different purposes. While they can sometimes accomplish the same design tasks, certain things are easier to do in one program over the others.
By the end of this 12-day course, you'll have learned all three, giving you a leg up on the competition. Take your newfound skills back to your current job, or use what you've learned to launch a new design business. You'll have made multiple portfolio-worthy projects by the end of this certificate program.
