« I have worked with Paul for several years in the web development area. While I did the development, he was the brain behind the design and illustrations, which was what brought our projects to life. Paul is an extraordinary illustrator both on and offline and has already proven his capabilities as a tutor by teaching Adobe Illustrator at the SAE institute in Amsterdam. He has come so much further than that now and owes it to the world to share his talent to eager learners. »

Learn Adobe Illustrator from a teacher with 20 years professional experience in Devon

Methodology

My name is Paul and I give lessons to aspiring artists, designers and other creatives wanting to master Illustrator and vector graphics. I begin with teaching the fundamentals of vectors and teach by giving a series of exercises that reveal new areas of the software at a rate that can be understood and built upon.

Background

I was head lecturer Rotterdam SAE college teaching Illustrator among other classes to over 600 students in my time there. Alongside this I ran my own graphic company and have been running another for the past 6 years back here in the UK. I have been using Illustrator professionally for 20 years

I have worked with Paul for several years in the web development area. While I did the development, he was the brain behind the design and illustrations, which was what brought our projects to life. Paul is an extraordinary illustrator both on and offline and has already proven his capabilities as a tutor by teaching Adobe Illustrator at the SAE institute in Amsterdam. He has come so much further than that now and owes it to the world to share his talent to eager learners.

Daniel

Paul rose up from being a star student to one of the best Illustrator instructors we’ve ever had. He’s not only technically gifted, he also has that rare ability to put students at ease and ensure they have fun while they are learning. It would be hard indeed to find a better tutor than Paul.

Steve

Paul has many years experience in the illustration and design field. He has a very high reputation and I feel the knowledge he can share with Adobe software is invaluable.

Dennis

I've worked with Paul for many years, working in Creative Media Education in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. He is a passionate graphic designer, a great teacher and goes the extra mile with his students. I've never met a person who is so in love with Illustrator as Paul does. If you are searching for an Adobe Illustrator teacher, Paul Smith is the go-to person. ~ Dennis
