Cool, trippy stuff! Enjoyed it. Learned some new keyboard commands and tricks. Love the Australian accent - very enjoyable to listen to.
Graphic Design Professor
Good: Excellent content. Direct and to the point. No fluff. Definitely a worthwhile class to learn the techniques for creating badges. Highly recommended. Bad: During the tutorial the instructor moved far too fast. You don't need to pause for 10 minutes at each step, but you do need to pause for a moment. That way people can see what you're doing as they follow along and try to mimic your actions on their computer.

Hey I'm Jeremy Mura, a graphic designer and illustrator from Sydney, Australia. After graduating college with a degree in graphic design, I started working with design agency's doing branding and web projects. Short while after I launched my personal brand, applying my knowledge to help other designers become greater.
I help start-ups and emerging brands communicate to their audience through design and illlustration. I love working with vector illustration, identity design and typography.
Look forward to making more classes and helping you create something awesome!
