The Annex presents:
The Tool Box - A Beginners Intensive in Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign.
The Annex is hosting Graphic Designer Daniel James to teach an interspersed three day workshop in Adobe CC Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign for beginners.
The intensive will:
- Give you a foundation in graphic design software.
- Image editing skills.
- To use design software for print and web for your business or portfolio.
- To understand technical jargon like knowing your JPEGs to your tiffs!
The three sessions have been designed that you can attend one of the session or all three. It is highly advisable to take all three sessions as most graphic work demands a mixture of these softwares to create.
