Today at work, I spent some time learning about functions in Adobe Illustrator that I’ve never used before; compound paths. Before you say “How on earth could you be without that tool?” thing about this; the industry standard design programs that I use on a day-to-day basis have huge capabilities and so many functions that it seems impossible to not keep learning new ways to perform a task. Everyone has a preferred practice for doing what needs to be done, but more often than not, if you compare methods with a colleague or friend, they are completely different.

I constantly use Adobe Illustrator, InDesign & Photoshop, and I don’t think I can ever hope to know every single thing that they can do; they are all such vast programs.

I do enjoy finding a good tutorial and going through it section by section until I’ve mastered what I need to do, and can remember it for future use. At work we have a subscription to lynda.com, but I can’t say I’ve really taken advantage of it yet. It’s nice to have access to fantastic resources though, as and when I need them!
