1.1 Introduction

[MUSIC] Hello, everybody. My name is Simona, and welcome to Envato Tuts+ and our coffee break course on the curvature tool in Adobe Illustrator CC. The curvature tool in Adobe Illustrator CC is fairly new and it's a really fun little tool. Unlike the pen tool, which can be quite daunting in the beginning when you're learning Adobe Illustrator, the curvature tool creates curves for you on the fly. The curvature tool in the toolbar of Adobe Illustrator is right next to the pen tool. And it's really simple to use. You can create quickly, shapes like circles, wavy lines, straight lines, zigzag lines, or even more intricate designs. And all that without the pen tool.
