If you’re looking for an easy way to learn graphic design, here’s a free video course that will teach you everything you need to know to start your own business in just 10 weeks.
The course, called Minimalist Graphic Design Masterclass, offers students the opportunity to get up-to-date on modern graphic design trends, build a graphic design portfolio and create your own graphic design website or portfolio.
It will also provide them with the tools they need to start a new business.
The course is taught by two graphic designers who have worked with clients from all over the world.
It also has plenty of examples of graphic design work from around the world and how it’s being used today.
The first course in the series, Minimalism Masterclass: The Graphic Designer’s Handbook, was launched in September 2017 and was designed by Graphic Design Magazine’s editor-in-chief, Sarah Mather.
She said she wanted to create a course that would help designers “get up to speed” on how to make graphic design better, so that they can help others to do the same.
“It’s an opportunity for the graphic designer to make sure that they understand the basic principles of graphic architecture and how that relates to the world around them,” she told Digital Trends.
“The course teaches you how to develop a portfolio of work and what you should be working on, what the most successful portfolios are and how to work with clients.”
“If you’re not up to date with the latest trends, you’re missing out on great work,” said Stephanie Beauregard, who designed the first course, Minimally, in 2017.
“If you’ve never worked with a client before, I think that’s a great way to get in touch with that client, to know them and then figure out what they want from you.”
“I wanted to teach people how to get their work done quickly, and get to work on their own projects quickly,” she added.
The second course in this series, The Graphic Design Handbook, is now in its second year, with a new version due out in 2018.
It teaches students how to build their own graphic designs, including concepts like vector graphics, typography, typographic style, typographical design and more.
“We wanted to make the courses more interactive, because it’s a really fun course to go to and to interact with other people and get feedback on their work,” Ms Beaurgard said.
“As the courses progresses, it starts to look a bit more like a tutorial.”
The courses, which are available on Lynda.com, can be accessed for free via the Lynda website, or you can download the free courses in PDF format for a low fee.
“What we like about Lynda is that they offer a lot of resources that people can use for free,” Ms Mather said.
“So we’ve been able to offer the courses in pdf format for people who can’t do the free version, so people can actually access them for free.”
The Lynda course has also been extended with an add-on course called Minimizing Graphic Design.
“The goal is to teach the basics of designing and developing visual content and a graphic designer,” Ms Fennell said.
You can find the course on Lyndas website here, or if you want to purchase the course you can find it on the Lyndas Store for $7.99.
The courses also include free practice quizzes, which can be taken at any time, so students will have something to practise on during the course.
Ms Beaures’ first course was a successful one, with students creating an online portfolio of their work.
“I think Lynda did a really great job in teaching us the basics,” Ms Janson said.
“I think that with the help of Lynda, I got to take the first step towards my professional goal of creating a portfolio.”
