We’re not new to Illustrator (Ai). We go back to Ai 3 (in the minds of many, the first real Ai). Before that, we used Aldus Freehand. In 1987, when Adobe introduced Illustrator 88, their first app, vector drawing was primarily used for creating lines, shapes, and type. Illustrator 88 was something of Adobe’s in-house tool for creating fonts. Feeding the need for typefaces, on Macs, and their PostScript printer output language, was Adobe’s key revenue stream, before Illustrator changed their business model.Classroom In A Book (CIB)This is our 108th CIB. These editions have been our verification that we are up to speed on what’s happening with the Adobe apps since the first CIB was released for Photoshop 4 in 1997. With time, other educators of creative professionals have adopted Classroom in a Book as the gold standard for what needs to be taught, not just to be proficient in a specific software program, but as an essential stepping stone to becoming an ACE (Adobe Certified Expert).Here’ a bit of a disclaimer, so we don’t mislead anyone. There was a time when you could read a CIB, cover-to-cover, and know everything the ACE exam included. And, you were very much an expert in that app.The days are over when all the lessons you need to know about an Adobe app can be taught in something less than 500 pages. This CIB is Illustrator CC 2014, which is better known as Ai 18. In 18 versions, since 1987, Adobe has packed enough features into this app to require well over 1,000 pages to teach them all.A year and a half ago Adobe made the move from their CS6 perpetual licenses to the Creative Cloud subscription model.
