This course is for anyone who is interested in becoming a graphic designer, and especially geared towards total beginners. This course will show you how to make some of the most popular projects in the industry, like:
- custom logos
- business cards
- web graphics
- and more.
You will be using Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator; the industry-standard applications for graphic design. You will also review relevant terms and design practices to help you create pixel-perfect projects for print and web, with the goal to get you up and running as soon as possible so you can start your new and exciting career as a graphic designer.
If you aren’t looking to learn design for a job, don’t worry – this is a great course for you too! Many students are moms looking to make fun cards or invitations, or students looking to spice up their resumes and social media graphics, and teachers looking to add some creative elements to their homework materials – the list goes on and on. Design is for everyone! And this course is, too!
There is also a private Facebook group with over 5600 students and counting, which is an awesome resource for you to take advantage of while you go through the course. The group is an excellent place to post projects, get insightful critiques, and network with other like-minded students and working professionals all over the world.
All project files are included as a free download at the beginning of each section, and you are welcome to use the files however you want, or simply to follow along with the projects as you move through the lessons.
You will cover a lot of program shortcuts in this course as well!
For the most part, all of the principles you will learn in this course transcend the tools you actually use – There are students using Adobe versions from CS3 up to CC 2018, and there are even students using apps like Sketch and Pixelmator to make some of the projects in this course.

Until recently I didn’t realize how versatile Adobe Illustrator was as a program. I have used the design program for year but I never imagined using Illustrator for anything but logos and flat illustrations. That was until I joined Instagram and begun stumbling though the many fantastic designer profiles. @fugstrator (seriously check out his profile) was the first designer I’d seen using Illustrator to create realistic illustrations using the feather effect and his artwork has inspired many of my own works.
