Best graphic design courses
« on: November 08, 2020, 05:26:40 am »
I am looking for a beginner's graphic design course on the Internet that will help that beginner design a book that has photos and text on each page and is full color.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

When trying to Google for something, I found that the search term "layout and composition" seemed to give a lot of "decent" hits. Other search terms seemed to give a lot of "false positives".

I did not spent time to check all the individual hits thuogh.

In think web pages or books are better than videos, becuase they give hands on examples.

I once found a text that was typset in like 15 different fonts, just for comparison. And the fonts were not completely different styles, but rather very similar.

I tried to look at my old printed documents for hints to where I found them, but most are in Swedish.

Thanks. Udemy kept freezing last week (they are running a special, taking the money, but not upgrading their backend to handle the load. Skillshare had a useful selection but none of the technical problems.

I found some good "single topic" courses that are about the right length (30-40 mins). Each one covers e.g.
Typefaces
Layout
Color
The Golden Section -- your point from an earlier message of mine.

That is what I was looking for.

Thanks for the help.
