Course Overview

The following courses are scheduled to be launched in the second half of 2017. To express your interest to enroll in this course, please write to pme@nextu.com.sg. We will contact you when we get closer to course launch date.

There was a time when it was obvious which software was used to create the design. Artwork produced using Adobe Illustrator had a distinct look that set it apart from artwork created using Adobe Photoshop. Fast forward to 2017 and that distinction has blurred significantly.

This masterclass will introduce participants to hybrid design using a cross between the two applications.

Participants will start a design in Photoshop and bring in vector elements, such as stylized drawings and circular text, from Illustrator. On the reverse side of the fence, a design started in Illustrator will incorporate images that were enhanced in Photoshop.
