About this course
This course is for Photoshop CC beginners that want to learn digital graphic design for responsive web sites, mobile, email, Facebook/Instagram ads and much more. This class is about much more than Photoshop. It’s about using Photoshop for graphic design, the creative process, UX/wireframing, how to use graphic design tools, presenting your designs, pro tips from professional graphic designer, working with clients and much more!
I will not only teach you about Photoshop but I will teach you the entire creative process that I’ve been using with clients for over 20 years. I’ve created an example real client, Lava Restaurant and Bar, that we’ll be working for. I’ll teach you how to work with a client and multiple ways you can present your designs. I’ll give you pro tips and insight into using photoshop as a design professional. I’ll show you how to UX (user experience)/wireframe like a pro then convert those wireframes into an amazing looking design. I’ll teach you why this part of the process is important and how it will save you time and make you a better designer and also make you more money. I’ll show you how to take the web site design then create not 1 but 3 Facebook ad designs for the client. I’ll teach you how to design an email and then create a 2nd option in minutes. Throughout every lesson I’ll show you the tools as we need them and how use them. Very importantly, I'll show you how I use the most common tools for design everyday. As a professional designer, I work in Photoshop every day, all day, it’s what I do.
What makes me qualified to teach Photoshop?
I've been working in advertising in downtown Chicago for over 20 years. Sometimes I have only hours to design an email, a banner or even concepts for a web site. My job is demanding so I need to move fast and efficiently in a program that is known to be slow. I will show you how to move like a pro and create designs at blazingly fast speeds. As we say in advertising, everything is due yesterday because it is such demanding job. I’ve worked with some of the largest companies in the world such as McDonald’s, Purina, Nintendo, Milk campaign, Nestle, Harley Davidson motorcycles and many more. One of the greatest projects that I was the lead designer on was the web site for the famous movie Avatar. Yep, I designed and oversaw the entire web site but did so with a team of great creatives. The Avatar web site launched in over 20 languages and was the largest web site global marketing campaign ever launched in the world.
I wanted to bring all my years of experience, knowledge and hard work to you so you can see how someone who earns their living with Photoshop works. So, buckle up and prepare for an energy filled, pro tip packed, information loaded course from a 20 year pro who uses the exact same design approaches everyday to design for the top companies in the world.
My promise to you is that you will learn a ton about design, creativity, presenting, technical knowledge and most importantly you'll feel like a pro and can in Photoshop by the time you complete my class. Thanks in advance. Reginald.
