Graphic Design Masterclass The Next Level
This course is not for those who have zero experience using Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator and some basic knowledge is assumed before starting. OR you have taken my Graphic Design Masterclass.
Learn Great Design, the first class in this series and you are ready for the next level or step in the series. This is a practical design course which is meant to teach while showing and producing real world client projects.
The first section of the course focuses on Adobe Photoshop and photo editing and manipulation. We will review photo retouching and learn the content aware tool, which speeds up your workflow and works almost like magic. We will brush up on our brush tool and learn how to create realistic shadows.
We will conquer a full photo manipulation project that will turn into a large poster ad. Not only will we tackle a photo manipulation project but will go into detail on typography and proper layout in ad design.
We will do a full logo design and branding project from scratch including the concept developing phase and how to pick the proper font, style and colors. In the end we will apply it to real world applications and mock-ups…
Learning how to sketch out our design ideas on pen and paper is so vital to creating a unique and interesting brand. I will walk through step by step how to create concepts from simple humble sketches and turn them into actionable branding assets.
We cannot ignore the critical part digital design plays in the world today. We will complete an entire digital marketing campaign complete with a wide variety of Facebook and Instagram sizes, including a Instagram story ad. You will see my raw design process, including how I think through design problems, layout and focus on the realistic side of design.
