I have been interested in Graphic Design for sometime now, and I’ve seriously thought about learning how to be a graphic designer. Sadly, I must admit that I have not even started! But 2016 is long gone, and we are now eighteen days into the new year. So, there is no time like the present.
As I have stated before I am setting out small goals for myself. So I am giving myself until December 2017, to learn as much as I can about Graphic Design. I am giving myself so long for a number of reasons.
- I have no time
- I am not going to be spending any money, until I have to.
- I have a toddler
So how in the world am I going to learn Graphic Design?
With good old fashion You Tube, and of course diving head first into a designing program like Adobe.
I am not sure if I can use these “self-learned” skills for a job in the real world but I do know that I can make myself that much more efficient. And I do love being efficient. As you may have noticed I have been playing around with my graphics here this site as well as my Patreon site. With experimenting I feel as though I am really creating something that is more authentic to me and my brand. Just recently I started dabbling in a watermark! Which by the way is sort of the “new thing”.
Learning graphic design not only helps me with my blog, it also gets me closer to my over all goal. (we will discuss that on a later date) But for now, I believe that this new skill will make me that much better as a writer, producer, and whatever.
I do hope you enjoy what I create and look forward to the next.
Until next time!
