Fundamentals of Graphic Design for Beginners in Amsterdam

Do you want to learn Graphic Design in Amsterdam but have NO EXPERIENCE?

I can help you!

With this Design tutoring lessons you will learn the Fundamentals of Graphic Design. We will be covering the fundamentals of IMAGEMAKING, TYPOGRAPHY, SHAPE and COLOR and COMPOSITION. I believe that the best way to learn about graphic design is to work HANDS-ON, learn and practice to develop your design skills.

Fundamentals of Imagemaking
We are going to look at how images function in terms of conveying denotative and connotative messages, I'll show you a range of analog and digital imagemaking techniques and discuss how they work.

Fundamentals of Typography
We are going to look at typographic terminology and the basic rules for creating typography. I'll show you a range of tips and techniques for working with type, in both a functional and expressive manner, and you'll find out about the process involved in making and controlling typography.

Fundamentals of Shape and Color
We are going to look at how designers work with shape and color as their fundamental building blocks. You'll learn about visual contrast, color, rhythm and pattern in design. I'll be showing you the process involved in making an abstract design from shapes, and how to use that element to create a repeating pattern design.

Fundamentals of Composition
We are going to look at how designers work with visual contrasts, cropping, hierarchy and direction in single images and complex compositions. You'll find out how to control and use scale, weight, direction, texture, and space in a composition, and how to compose work that ranges from the complex to the minimal.

Extra information

Bring your own laptop (if you have Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop it is great, however, if not there are alternative softwares for free you can use like Canva, Inkscape...)
Optional: Bring your own art supplies (paint, pencil, watercolor..)

Branding: Develop your visual identity from A to Z
Brand design is what makes your brand unforgettable, therefore it is one of the most important investments you can make in your business or for yourself. When the most used sources of information for the company are websites, social networks, search engines, brochures and catalogs, the brand of the company must be above others for succeed. While good content is important, it's the visual aspect of your brand that gets the public's attention first. Thus, a good visual brand design offers you these competitive advantages. In a constantly paced world with many competing brands and other distractions, your brand identity will often make the difference between the success and failure of your projects. Learning how to design the brand you dreamed of or learning how to create brands for other companies gives you these skills in high demand. In this course, I will teach you how to design brands from concept to finish. The course will be a project-based course and will use the learning-by-doing approach where you will be guided in detail through the branding process from logo design to business cards, branded t-shirts , brochures, leaflets, letterheads, envelopes, website banners, etc. I will teach you how to design a strong visual brand that creates a sense of unity and cohesion, by maintaining a consistent and clear brand across all marketing channels, because only then can customers instantly recognize your Mark. Branding shows that you are proud of your business. Customers will recognize the investment you make in the success of your own business and know that you will deliver with the same passion when it comes to meeting their needs. Attention to detail in brand design, even something as simple as a business card, can reassure your customers that you value every aspect of your business. A professional branding immediately gives people the impression that you are an established, confident and trustworthy business. No matter the size of the business, putting order in the brand design will bring you more customers, make your product more easily recognizable and encourage people to come back for more. Then sign up for this course if you want to become a beginner to a professional brand designer.
