Photoshop for Graphic Design
Evening course | 3 weeks | 18.30 - 21.30 | 8 places | £239
This course will offer a detailed overview of the tools that every Graphic Designer needs for a client pitch, or to be added to a design portfolio.
Step by step, you will cover the whole design process, from choosing the correct settings and resolution, to producing final output files.
Starting with a full Photoshop introduction from a graphic design perspective, participants will gain an understanding of the main differences when working for print and web, working with different formats and resolutions, and avoiding common mistakes through good file structuring.
Particular focus will be on creating a design following a detailed brief. This will include working with a logo, combining type and textures and blending all elements into a great layout.
You will learn how to master key tools such as adjustment layers, layer masks and blending modes, which will improve your workflow and allow you to produce a design of industry standard quality.
The end of the day will be even more exciting when you will learn how to bring your design to life, into a billboard mock-up, web banner, packaging design or a poster.

‘I completed the Photoshop for Graphic Design and the Retouching for Fashion and Beauty course with tutor Mikael Eliasson. Both were brilliant. I work for a magazine so I am very familiar with Photoshop but I’ve picked up bad habits over the years so I found the courses most useful for learning how to work as efficiently as possible..’

'..great one-day basic course going through the most useful tools - great teaching in a low key and supportive way with demonstrations and exercises and plenty of attention for questions and getting stuck.’
