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.

About Me

have had many self-made titles over the years: Brand Manager, Digital Architect, Interactive Designer, Graphic Designer, Web Developer and Social Media Expert, to name a few. My name is Lindsay Marsh and I have been creating brand experiences for my clients for over 11 years. I have made more than a half million dollars as a freelance graphic designer and have worked on a wide variety of projects both digital and print. 

I have had the wonderful opportunity to be able to take classes at some of the top design schools in the world, Parsons at The New School, The Pratt Institute and NYU. I am currently transitioning to coaching and teaching. If you are interested in one on one training or coaching, please feel free to contact me.
