Digital Graphic Design Online Short Course

This course will show you how to use graphic design software (Adobe CC) to turn your creative ideas into digital reality. The course focuses on the workflows and processes used by professional designers to work efficiently, and to get the best results from the digital tools.

At each stage you will receive personal feedback on your work from the tutor, as well as help with shortcuts and practical tips.

You will gain a better overall knowledge of design software, and become much more confident in using software to create design solutions, and preparing them for print or web.
