Hello and welcome to my Ultimate Guide on How to Become a Designer, my name is Martin Perhiniak. I'm an Adobe Certified Design Master instructor. I am passionate about teaching creative applications and inspiring people around the world. I have several years of experience working as a designer and I worked for companies like Disney, Mattel, Cartoon Network, Warner Brothers and DC Comics. I know exactly what skills you need in the creative industry and I decided to put together an extensive course, which will answer all your questions about becoming and working as a designer.
This is the ultimate guide for you to start your creative career and prepare for all the challenges and excitement along the way. I will provide lots of industry secrets and best practices on what type of workspace is good for designers, what type of tools and applications are recommended and what are the essential skills needed to work on real design projects. I will give you several practical examples about these skills using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign and provide exercise files so you can practice what you learn. I will introduce you to the main design fields and what is needed to get into them plus I will share all my experience with you on how to get recognised as a designer and find a job in the creative industry.
