About This Class

Hi, Marouane here,

In this class, we're gonna have some fun in Photoshop. We are going to create a design proposal for a pair of headphones by starting out with a simple black silhouette. 

If you want to learn how to sketch products in Photoshop, this class is for you. 

Here's some of what you will learn:

  • How to setup a Photoshop document for sketching - Resolution, DPI
  • What brushes to use (we are going to focus on standard PS brushes)
  • How to create simple silhouettes as a template for ideation sketches
  • Understand where to put light and where to add shading
  • How to create burn points
  • Creating cutlines or section lines between the different parts of the product
  • The easiest way to visualize LED light with specific layer blend modes
  • How to add color to a grey scale rendering in 2 minutes
  • ...and more

If you get stuck anywhere, I'm always available to help out in the class discussions!

See you inside!

Design Professional & Online Teacher


I'm an industrial designer and online teacher from Sweden currently living in the sunshine state of Florida. I've always had a great passion for design and especially design sketching. I began my professional design journey as a freelancer in 2008. 

You could say I'm a wannabe surfer and backpacker (34 countries and counting) who loves design and helping others succeed. I have worked as an industrial designer, concept artist, illustrator and online teacher for over 10 years. Makes me feel old saying that...

In 2010 I moved to Italy to study a master degree in automotive design in collaboration with the design team from Audi and Lamborghini. I graduated a year later.

Since then I've been lucky to have my designs featured online and in numerous magazines such as Auto Motor & Sport, Auto Express, Car Magazine, Top Speed and Car Scoop.

I'm currently living in South Florida with my beautiful wife Lindsey. Here I help the largest privately owned medical device developer in the world solve their design problems and create better products while also creating online products and classes.

Online marketing is another great passion of mine, specifically video marketing, email marketing and social media. This is what I want to share with you in my classes.

I look forward to being a part of helping you get to where you want to be,

Thank you, now let's get to work!
