I love vectortuts.com They have great tutorials that are clean, easy to follow and relevant. Although I’ve been working with Illustrator for a while now, I learn new things every day and I say, wow! “I never knew you could do it that way!”
Here is a great tutorial I came across the other day. Illustrator isn’t the best for word processing, but sometimes when combining text and illustration, I find it’s easier to work in Illustrator than going back and forth in another program like InDesign. If it’s the same case for you, here’s a great tutorial to help you out with typography in Illustrator. It’s pretty elementary but you might find some tricks you didn’t know before!
Have a great weekend!
