UPDATED! Now featuring over 15 hours of on-demand content, including getting your design portfolio up and running online using  Adobe Portfolio and Behance!

Welcome to the Graphic Design Bootcamp! This course has over 6,000 5-star reviews, and has been a Udemy bestseller for more than a year!

Do you like to learn in a project-based environment?

Do you want to learn the basics of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign?

Do you want to tackle BOTH print and web design projects?

You’re in the right place! This course is for anyone who is interested in becoming a graphic designer, and especially geared towards beginners. When you enroll in this course, you will have access to over 15 hours of on-demand content, as well as the opportunity to join a private Facebook group with over 13,000 members.

I move quickly through the content, since many students enjoy a quick learning pace. Prefer a more laid-back pace? Many students find that re-watching lectures or pausing the lectures during key learning points is a helpful way to digest the information.

I also make use of shortcuts – something that all great designers learn how to do to increase their productivity and maximize their workflow – so once you enroll, be sure to download the course shortcut hotsheet: a PDF listing many of the most-used shortcut codes so that you can follow along easily and get ahead quickly.

In this course I'll also show you how to make some of the most popular projects in the industry, like:

· custom logos

· business cards

· brochures

· flyers

· web graphics

· and more.

What Students Are Saying About This Course:

· "I have used Adobe CC for a few years now, but everything I've learned I've learned from doing. While some of this has been basic as I'm already familiar with the tools, there are tricks and advice that I would have never known that make life MUCH easier (the "content-aware" fill is a game changer) and I really enjoy the pacing and manner in which he explains the tools, techniques and theory!" - Nikki Tetreault

· "This course is good. The tutor is really nice and clear (US accent is alien to me so I sometimes find it difficult to understand - the tutor here is great, doesn't speak too fast & is clear, without too many colloquialisms). Enjoying the classes. Feel prepared enough for the purpose I took the course. Would definitely recommend and also do other courses by this tutor" - Alvira Kiss

· "I started this course with little experience and thankfully I have learnt a lot throughout this course. I can't wait to learn more about this industry and make my mark on the world and its all thanks to this course which has kickstarted my journey!" - Charles Vaughn

· "So far it's been great. I'm a student that struggles largely in traditional school settings, the ability to pause, take notes, rewind, and move back and forth as I need has been great. The instructor has been clear and precise, and has given plenty to think about as we're creating files." - Samantha Finn

· "For a guy whove been working with photoshop for nearly 10 years Im still learning from this course." - Aryne Neil Cabatan

What to Expect:

We will be using Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator; the industry-standard applications for graphic design. I'll 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 of my 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 13,000 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.

As mentioned before, I 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 2019, 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.

The Graphic design masterclass intermediate level, are you ready to level up your design skills

Who should take this class? Those with very basic skills in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. You already may be familiar with the pen tool basics understand the layering system and know a few other basic tools. You have a little experience using these programs and have a solid basic working knowledge of these programs.

Or you have taken my Graphic Design Masterclass: Learn Great Design, the first in this masterclass series, although taking this class is not a requirement to join on this one, just those basic software skills. But this class Is a natural next intermediate step.

This is a practical design course meant to teach you techniques and skills by producing real world projects.

We will first talk about intermediate techniques when it comes to Adobe Photoshop, like diving deep with removing complex objects from photos and using the content aware tools. We then will talk about photo composites and put two totally different photos together using curves and other more intermediate Photoshop tools.

We will brush up on your brush tool in Photoshop to learn how to paint on realistic shadows that can be applied to a variety of situations.

We quickly get into real world projects by tackling a fast food burger ad that is both dynamic and helps us practice working with typography, headlines and effects in Adobe Photoshop.

This course includes a fairly large logo design section. We talk about the power of sketching our ideas on paper or in a digital sketching app. This course even includes an extensive downloadable logo design worksheet and we will work through the entire logo design process with the help of this worksheet. We talk about client presentation, when to present to clients, color and even exporting files.

The golden ratio is a great intermediate logo design concept to master and we will do just that in this course.

Speaking of grids we will not stop there, we talk all about the isometric grid system and work through an entire project using isometric grids to create a realistic 3D illustration.

New to this course is an intermediate InDesign section. We will walk through the creation of a magazine spread and cover and talk in more depth about creating strong editorial designs, headlines and crafting compelling stories with photos.

Infographics is a tough topic for designers and can have a steep learning curve, I thought it would make for the perfect project to work through together in this extensive section.

We will walk through topics about how to legally and safely use fonts photos and downloadable vector resources as this is impotent to any maturing designer.

Knowing how to craft effective ads is a great quality to have and can help you have more success as a designer, we will talk about how to create effective advertising as well as work through an entire social media campaign.

There are tons of extra project sections including one on creating a poster using just typography.

Package design is another great intermediate topic and we will go in-depth about the package design process including how to work with files, set them up and create a rich looking package design for a chocolate bar.

Graphic design is more than just creating projects it also about finding work and clients. I have included an entire portfolio building section where we talk about how to create stunning portfolio presentations and how to build them online and offline.

I hope you decide to join me for this incredible journey through lots of fantastic intermediate design topics, projects and more.

The Ready for the next Level?

This course is dynamic, so new lessons and bonus content will be added frequently!

Graphic Design Elements: Color Theory and Application

Hello I am Adam Chraibi a professional graphic designer and animator. This course is about color theory and how to get the most use of it and apply it as a fundamental to your graphic design projects.

Color is one of the most Important and tricky elements of graphic design because it is always a shifting course. But it is also one of the most powerful tools a designer can use and effectively  communicate with clients and invoke meaning. With Successful color combinations you can attract the right customers to buy your services or products and easily increase your sells.

As much as color can help. The designer can face a lot of difficulties and challenges working with colors, part of those challenges are:

• The subjective nature of color, it may cause a designer to be afraid of using bold combinations or from experimenting new things, using always the same color combination may get in the way of the approval process with the client.

• Cultural connotations may lead the viewers to misunderstand the information.

• The technical difficulties of representing a color on a screen in print and other media.

Fortunately, this is what this course is all about. You will learn how to use the right hues for any given design project by studying color relationships such as which color work the best with one another and how to create a successful tonal relationships. Learning this will help you as a designer save time and money and most importantly help you elicit the correct response from an audience and produce successful color solutions.

It's a huge endeavor to get a business off the ground - especially if the business is in creative production ( like graphic design, 3D modeling, illustration, etc). Not only are you responsible for your day-to-day deliverables, but you also have to market yourself, bill clients, network, and so much more!

Ready for a freelance mentor? Here I am! 

20 years of design experience, 10 of which as a fully self-employed design professional- I've worked for many household brand names, but that wasn't always the case... I started in the basement and hustled my way through 80 hour work weeks to cut ties with the day job life and get out on my own. I have my share of networking horror stories, deadbeat clients, and way too many things I would have done differently if I had only known better! And that's what I bring to you! 

You can learn design in school and off youtube for sure, but when it comes to the reality of making this your livelihood? Well, that's where I'm handy :)

We are going to go into:

Where to best use your time so you aren't spinning your wheels

What needs to happen FIRST so you don't waste time backtracking

How you can set up client boundaries to protect your sanity

Social media starting with fan #0001

Great multitasking hacks to get the most out of your time spent

By the end of this class, you'll be well on your way to having that freelance side hustle up and running the right way - FAST! 

Avoid the mistakes and time-wasting pitfalls so common in the industry so you can focus on the creative part - the whole reason you got into it in the first place!

This ambitious class aims to tackle the entire branding and design process.

We will dive deep into creating our logo, how to create and expand our branding standards and produce our color palette and logo variations.

We also dive into ad design and layout including layout design for digital and print graphics. We cover the package design process as we develop our series of lotion bottles. Stationary design is also covered including letterhead and business card designs.

This class leaves nothing out as I teach you how to prepare each file we produce for press and how to work with ad specs, Pantone inks and package design.

We will also learn a few new programs along the way including Adobe dimensions a 3d mockup program where we will take our package design and apply it to a 3d lotion bottle to produce some pretty cool graphics for our ad and website design.
