This course is for anyone who is interested in becoming a graphic designer, and especially geared towards total beginners. I’ll show you how to make some of the most popular projects in the industry, like:
We will be using Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator; the industry-standard applications for graphic design. I’ll also review relevant terms and design practices to help you create pixel-perfect projects for print and web, with the goal to get you up and running as soon as possible so you can start your new and exciting career as a graphic designer.
If you aren’t looking to learn design for a job, don;t worry – this is a great course for you too! Many of my students are moms looking to make fun cards or invitations, or students looking to spice up their resumes and social media graphics, and teachers looking to add some creative elements to their homework materials – the list goes on and on. Design is for everyone! And this course is, too!
There is also a private Facebook group with over 5600 students and counting, which is an awesome resource for you to take advantage of while you go through the course. The group is an excellent place to post projects, get insightful critiques, and network with other like-minded students and working professionals all over the world.
All project files are included as a free download at the beginning of each section, and you are welcome to use the files however you want, or simply to follow along with the projects as you move through the lessons.
We launched a daily online graphic design newspaper as an added resource for our students! It will be a great companion to our Private class Facebook group (which has 5,600 members and growing). We look forward to seeing you join in the fun!
Have you heard? The latest release of Adobe Creative Cloud 2017 is finally here! I’m both stoked and panicking… stoked because with the new update there are all kinds of new and exciting changes, and panicking because now I need to review the course and make updates to ensure you can still follow along. For the most part, all of the principles you will learn in this course transcend the tools you actually use – There are students using Adobe versions from CS3 up to CC 2017, and there are even students using apps like Sketch and Pixelmator to make some of the projects in this course.
If you see anything in any of the lectures that no longer apply with the software update, please let me know! I’m doing my best to keep this course up to date and continue to add value for you.
