About This Class

Do you want to know how to become a Graphic Designer? Where do you start? This class gives you a good jumpstart and helps point you to the right places to get started. We will discuss how much you can make, what programs to learn, where to find them, the best resources for design elements and we will go over the designer triad (illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign), and why we need to learn each.

This is not a technical class, I do offer technical classes in design, if you are interested. I designed this class for people wanting to explore the possibility of this as a career option and how to get started exploring that curiosity. 

If you are interested in learning the designer triad (Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign) I have several technical classes, just check out my skillshare profile. 

As always, feel free to ask questions of all types in the community section of this class!
