Creating graphic, illustration, design and then writing tutorials covering all functions in Adobe Illustrator. »Illustrator Aktuell« has been a collaboration with other artists, my part being writing, research, project management, editing and tech editing.
The magazine »Illustrator Aktuell« had 32 editions (with 64 pages each) starting from 2007 and since 2015 has been included in »Creative Aktuell«.
»Creative Aktuell« covers Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, PDF, sometimes touching other Creative Cloud apps as well as third party plug-ins, my part being the Illustrator section. Also covering Illustrator Draw, Photoshop Sketch, Adobe Capture CC, Adobe Comp CC, Adobe Animate, Astute Graphics plug-ins, CADtools plug-in, Vectoraster, Inkscape.
