Great Course and Wonderful Instructor

Aloha Chad, Your course on InDesign is fabulous. You teach it so well, that, after watching your course online, I designed the interior of my own paperback book–and that was my first time ever using InDesign. Now that’s a great course and a wonderful instructor. Thanks to your online course, I am able to handle all my interior layouts myself, so my books look exactly the way I want them to look. Thank you so very much!

Logo Design and Illustrator

I highly recommend taking this course! I’m studying UI/UX design and decided to take it to help me acquire logo and iconography skills. I’ve been using Photoshop for the past couple of years, but needed a good beginner introduction to Illustrator that would also teach related topics like clients, finding work, etc. This course definitely gave me the solid base that I need to continue learning Illustrator in even more difficult courses. Knowledgeable instructor that teaches in such a way total beginners can learn it, but also shows you more difficult techniques that keep it exciting but not overwhelming. I also appreciate the fact that I’ve learned far more than just how to make a logo in Illustrator. Contracts, pricing, conceptualizing and everything that is essential for designers to know is covered in detail so you get a complete course that covers the entire process from beginning to end.

Apply Graphic Design in Practice

Despite working as a designer for a few years, I didn’t major in design, and this course helped me feel more confident that I can apply design theory in my practice. I am taking Dr. Neuman’s logo design class and it’s just as good.

Outstandingly Useful Course

Outstandingly useful course. If you’re new to Photoshop, this course is a must watch. Even those with some experience of Photoshop will probably learn a thing or three. Explanations are clear and comprehensive and the videos are high quality–pin sharp and great sound. Highly recommend.

Illustrator Mastery

For some time now, I’ve been just “winging” it in Illustrator. I’ve been using Photoshop for most of my design work, knowing that I needed to also be using Illustrator, but most courses I’ve tried really weren’t giving me the instruction I was seeking . . . either way too technical or not technical enough. This course gave me all the tools I needed to feel confident in transitioning to using Illustrator. The instructor is both comprehensive without being overly technical, the quality of the videos is wonderful, and the instructor’s delivery was interesting and engaging. I love this course!
