Overall, great course, I'm light year ahead from where I was when I opened the course (maybe the third time I've opened InDesign)
Good starter course for ID essentials

Graphic & Web Designer

As a Graphic Designer, it is my job to create and produce an identity for my clients that is in-sync with their business and/or individual vision. By following a set process which begins with researching and initial concepts and ends with final designs and development, I am able to present my clients with well thought out and customized products.

In addition to my work as both an in-house and freelance designer, I also provide lessons both in person and online on how the various Adobe Programs as well as WordPress.

I firmly believe that as we continue to grow as the 'tech era' that everyone should have at least a basic understanding of the technology and elements used to create the things we see daily.
