About This Class

Hi, I’m Marouane and welcome to my class Photoshop for Designers, part 1.

This is the first class in a series of classes to come that will help you understand product design sketching in Photoshop better.

In this first class, we are going to be covering the basics such as what tools to use when sketching digitally, how to fire up your creative side of the brain in a matter of minutes. I’m also going to show you two ways of shading in Photoshop and we are going to practice this using a simple cube.

As a final step in this class, we are going to jump into texturing. We are going to use the cube we create in this class as an example and add different textures to it such as wood, fabric and metal and I’m going to show you a trick that will speed up the process and make it look really cool.

Thank you for you interest in my class, now let’s get started! 

PS. Make sure you download my brush set here! Makes it easier to follow along :)

Marouane Bembli

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!
