“I decided to do a training course in Adobe Illustrator to improve my almost non-existent skills using the software, and I'm really glad I did. The training I received during the two-day course at Creative Studios, was in-depth and gave me a thorough grounding in understanding how to use Adobe Illustrator proficiently. Mark was very helpful and explained each step and tool carefully.”
