Julián Ardila-Colombian designer and illustrator-currently has his own studio: Franca, with which he seeks to work with entrepreneurs and brands that aim to generate a positive impact, but his beginnings in design go back to advertising agencies, such as Leo Burnet and Sancho BBDO Colombia, time in which he had the opportunity to be part of the project "Empresarios de Andén", helping small merchants and street vendors, who did not have the resources to promote themselves, to have their own graphic image.

In this course, Julian will teach you how to make an illustrated poster using Illustrator and Photoshop, from the conception of the idea to the final art. In addition, it will teach you to convert that illustration into a simple animated gif so that the image gains even more strength.
