4.8 stars Illustrator is definitely a meaty program and Eva was able to streamline the basics very well while adding in further detail of how to maximize the use of all the tools. I can't wait to dive in further on my own time and really master this program. I also look forward to taking any other advanced Illustrator courses Training Connection may offer in the future.

5.0 stars Kristian was highly detailed in his course curriculum drawing from his extensive background knowledge and experience with adobe and he was exactly what I was looking for in an instructor, as I was initially nervous to sign up for a bootcamp style class. He understood clearly on how I needed to apply the skillsets I was looking to acquire, for me to apply to my real world business scenarios. He had a perfect balance of high density info delivery in a fun positive full of humor teaching style. It was personal investment for acquiring new professional caliber skills well spent. The training center was very clean, along with the equipment being top notch. I would take classes here again, and the free snacks and coffee were definitely a bonus. This review was for the 5 day Illustrator Bootcamp.Mikala Bautista

5.0 stars I thoroughly enjoyed my two day course that I attended and look forward to the skills and inspiration I gained. Now I will be able to implement these skills in personal illustration projects and graphic design work. Thanks. Cheers!Mathew Ward
5.0 stars Honestly, this class was awesome. I have always wanted to learn more about Illustrator and have been frustrated that my creativity was limited by my understanding of the program. After taking this bootcamp class, I have an entirely new understanding of Illustrator and I'm excited to be able to put these skills to use in my job. Eva was the sweetest teacher and was always available to answer questions and show us real-world examples of projects and ways to use our new skills. I couldn't recommend this program more highly - very grateful to have had this opportunity. Looking forward to returning to take the Photoshop bootcamp class! Thanks! Joel Loera
