Hi Matt Looks like a good course! I've been using Illustrator for basically everything (even simple bitmap editing!) for years and have a great fondness for it. It's certainly a much better web design, UX tool than most people realise. Especially with the rise of SVGs and @x export requirements. I've been using Sketch fairly recently but there are some glaring workflow holes to overcome for the seasoned AI user! I hope PH does wonders for your course, anyway!

@bentossell Heyo... Sure thing! I’ve been using Illustrator for a long long time—ever since graphic design school back in 2004—and I started using it for UX design and wireframing pretty early on in my career. A few years ago a handful of people kept asking me about my process for UX and UI design, so I put together a little wireframing kit on my site: http://mds.is/wireframing-with-i... To my surprise it became super popular, compared to the rest of my content. Because of this I decided to write more about Illustrator and started with a post about understanding vector shapes: http://mds.is/understanding-vect... Again, not really thinking much about it, the post got huge traffic, relatively speaking. Around this same time I watched people like Sean Wes, Nathan Barry, and Ramit Sethi launching courses successfully. The culmination of all these things got me motivated to put the AIUX course together.
