  1. Review of Graphic Design Course

    5

    This course was a great introduction to graphic design for a total beginner such as myself. It gives a thorough impression of the kind of work you’ll be doing and how to go about pursuing a field in this career.

    People should be awar though that no detail is gone into about any of the practical work of being a designer but is covered in different courses.

  2. Great course

    4

    Great starter course with lots of Information would recommend for starter

  3. Not what I expected

    2

    This course explains the lifestyle of a graphic designer and the tools needed but it doesn’t give you any foundation training in each tool. This course is mainly to promote all courses available from this particular designer once you have chosen your path, but I personally just wanted to acquire some basic skills in Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.
