Level Up Your Graphic Design Skills with Real World Projects: Logo Design, Photo Manipulation, Digital Design & More!

So, who should take this class? Those with very basic skills in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, you may be familiar with the pen tool basics, understand the layering system and know other basic tools. You have a little experience using these programs, but do not have to be totally proficient. This course is not for those who have zero experience using Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator and some basic knowledge is assumed before starting.

This is a practical design course which is meant to teach while showing and producing real world client projects. 

The first section of the course focuses on Adobe Photoshop and photo editing and manipulation. We will review photo retouching and learn the content aware tool, which speeds up your workflow and works almost like magic. 

We will brush up on our brush tool and learn how to create realistic shadows. 

We will conquer a full photo manipulation project that will turn into a large poster ad. Not only will we tackle a photo manipulation project but will go into detail on typography and proper layout in ad design. 

I focused heavily on logo design and branding in this course as that is a huge part of design today. We will learn how to work with the golden ratio and even try our hand at a logo based on the golden ratio

We will do a full logo design and branding project from scratch including the concept developing phase and how to pick the proper font, style and colors. In the end we will apply it to real world applications and mock-ups 

Learning how to sketch out our design ideas on pen and paper is so vital to creating a unique and interesting brand. I will walk through step by step how to create concepts from simple humble sketches and turn them into actionable branding assets. 

We will even hand draw a symbol and trace it with the pen tool to make it a vector object so we can extend that to anything you can imagine. 

We cannot ignore the critical part digital design plays in the world today.  We will complete an entire digital marketing campaign complete with a wide variety of Facebook and Instagram sizes, including a Instagram story ad. You will see my raw design process, including how I think through design problems, layout and focus on the realistic side of design. 

So are you ready for the next level?
