What does it take to be a graphic designer? Design is a complex art that involves many different skills and tools, but by breaking it down into four main topics, Justin Seeley shows how you can get your start in the design world. First he covers the theory: high-level concepts like layout, typography, and color. Then you'll get hands-on, using Illustrator to build a custom logo from scratch and practice your vector-drawing techniques. Next, Justin takes you into Photoshop, where you'll learn to creatively adjust, repair, and retouch the kinds of images you'll use in design projects. Last, visit InDesign for an overview of the layout and print preparation processes. By the end, you'll have a better grasp of what graphic designers do and what you'll need to learn next.
