Live Online Classes - July Intake Only

Live online classes are a friendly and supportive alternative to watching video tutorials – you’re able to ask questions and receive answers from an experienced Yoobee tutor in real time. 

Your tutor will share their screen, demonstrating professional tools and techniques, then support you as you follow along, completing activities during class time.

Live classes are supported by an active class forum where your tutor provides additional information and feedback outside of class times.

Live classes are also recorded, so you can review them in your own time or log in to learn at a time that works best for you.

What you'll learn

Graphic Design Principles

The Graphic Design Process

The course takes you through the graphic design process, from the initial brief and ideation process through to the final product.

We'll look at the practical role of elements such as line, form, value and grids. You'll also learn some technical theory, including colour modes and resolution.

Design Brief

Software

The course provides an overview of graphic design-specific programs included in the Adobe Creative Suite, looking at the purpose of each, how they complement each other and work together as a whole. You'll learn to select the correct application for the task and practice using them together to achieve the best results.

Photoshop: We take you through basic image manipulation, drawing and painting.

Illustrator: Your tutor will demonstrate how to use basic Illustrator tools to create vector images, including drawing, creating basic logos and gaining an understanding of how vector-based images are used within graphic design.
