TLDR: The 2020 Adobe Graphic Design Certification School offers training in all three of Adobe’s industry-leading graphic design apps.
From its lofty perch at the top of the creative food chain, it’s hard to remember a time when the family of apps that make up the Adobe Creative Cloud weren’t the preeminent digital creation tools on the planet. But back in the mid-80s, way before easy audio and video editing and website building, Adobe was built on the back of Illustrator, one of the early vector-based drawing programs.
