In this video, we are going to be focusing on type in Adobe Illustrator. It would be pretty tedious and difficult to create brochures, magazines, newspapers or books in this program but illustrator does offer a range of tools to be creative with type which you may find useful for logos, Tshirt designs, posters or book covers.

In this tutorial we are going to be looking at the Type tools on offer, and how we might use them.
