Do you know how the materials in a winery tasting room are created? Do you know where the tasting menus, event posters/flyers, business cards, wine club brochures, wine labels, nametags, signs, computer displays, video displays etc. come from? Adobe Illustrator is used to design the logo, Adobe Photoshop is used to incorporate photos of people and places into the design, and Adobe InDesign is used to publish the design. Graphic design with these three programs will be the focus of this course. At the end of the semester, we will spend one week on interactive design and one week on video editing. Illustrator and Photoshop psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/illustration/use-illustrator-and-photoshop-to-create-a-3d-string-of- pills-screencast Designers are doing amazing things with Illustrator and Photoshop. Watch this 4-part video tutorial series on graphic design that uses 3D and special effect filters.

Materials drho.ro/lynda I recommend getting a Lynda.com video tutorial subscription so that you can have expert video tutorials guide you through learning Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. These programs are not easy to learn and substandard tutorials cause frustration. Purchasing a Lynda.com video tutorial subscription will be the best $25/month you have ever spent (on marketing education). Try a free one-day pass and decide for yourself. drho.ro/tutsplus I recommend subscribing to Vectortuts+, Psdtuts+, and Phototuts+ so that you can have access to tutorials that demonstrate how designers are using Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign in a cutting-edge manner. These sites offer premium tutorials that you can purchase a la carte, or, you can pay $9 a month for a premium Tuts+ membership. tv.adobe.com Adobe has free tutorials at Adobe TV, which you can search by product. apple.com/ilife/tutorials Apple has free tutorials, which you can search for by product. 5 Tools Retailing with Adobe is designed to be used with the following software: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, and Adobe Fireworks and Adobe Premiere/iMovie. Adobe CS4 is in the computer labs, and Adobe CS5 is the current version. You can download Adobe CS5 at adobe.com and use it free for 30 days. iMovie ’09 is in the computer labs, and iMovie ’11 is the current version.
