In a digital world dominated by Instagram and YouTube, visual communication skills are very valuable. This CPD-certified course shows you how to create stunning visuals for any project—even if you’re a complete Photoshop novice.
The training is spread over four weeks, with eight interactive lessons. The live sessions help you to understand the principles of design, and create stunning logos from scratch. You’ll even dive into typography, user interaction, and printing so you’ll walk away with a wide array of skills. Of course, you’ll also get hands-on experience with the “Holy Trinity” — Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, which any designer is expected to know.
You should come away with a valuable skill set and an impressive portfolio to show to potential clients. In addition, you can add a certificate of completion to your résumé to backup your skills.
Originally priced at $395, this training is now down from $99 to just $29.
