Graphic Design for Everyone
Graphic design is everywhere you look; some of it good, some of it bad, and some of it just plain ugly. In this 3-day course you’ll learn the four secrets to great graphic design that'll ensure your promotional materials always looks their very best. Each design secret will be revealed, defined and then put into practice on several projects including business cards, ads, and more. You'll also learn a lot about typography and color theory, both of which are essential for your design success. No matter which software you use—Photoshop, InDesign, Pages, or even Word—these design techniques will serve you well!
