Week 1: Introduction
Welcome graphic design students! I’m so glad for our first class last night and super excited to get to know all of you. In class each week, we will review discussion topics, notes on practice projects, upcoming group projects, tips for practicing what we’ve learned, inspiration, and free online resources. For those of you still interested in “jumping in” to the graphic design class, we meet every Thursday at 7 PM at the Creative Arts Academy (please note that advance registration is required, but you can register online right here).
- Inspiration: Get inspired for your project color palette by exploring color scheme websites like Design-Seeds (one of my favorites) and Colour Lovers.
- Free Resources: Free stock photos: Stock.XCHNG
There are tons of free design resources all over the web. Each week I will highlight at least one. Our first is Stock.XCHNG. Stock.XCHNG is free, but you need to register with an email address, and create a user and pass.
