Have you heard? The latest release of Adobe Creative Cloud 2017 is finally here! I’m both stoked and panicking… stoked because with the new update there are all kinds of new and exciting changes, and panicking because now I need to review the course and make updates to ensure you can still follow along. 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 2017, and there are even students using apps like Sketch and Pixelmator to make some of the projects in this course.
If you see anything in any of the lectures that no longer apply with the software update, please let me know! I’m doing my best to keep this course up to date and continue to add value for you.
Who is the target audience?
- Someone in the corporate world who is looking to gain skills in graphic design so you can produce graphics and print materials for your company.
- Someone looking to start a career as a graphic designer.
- Someone wanting to start their own business as a freelance graphic designer.
- Ideally, you are someone who would consider yourself as “creative” and you often find yourself doodling on a notebook or napkin. You notice artwork around you, and when you see cool graphics on posters or in catalogs and brochures, you stop to admire them and wonder how they are made. You might be the “family photographer” and you always find yourself taking photos or videos with family and friends. You also have a strong attention to detail and strong focus to stay engaged in a project even when it might be boring.
