Hello budding Graphic Designers! As noted at the top of my profile (in big bold letters) my name is Chris. I am a graphic designer and printing professional, with over 20 years of B2B and B2C experience. Through the years I have had the good fortune to work both sides of the fence, as a supplier, and client. This experience has provided me with an invaluable insight into design preparation; something that I believe is seldom taught today . . . and I’d like to pass this knowledge on to you.

Over the years I have produce work, both design and print, for various industries: City Government, Education, Food and Beverage, Law Enforcement, Manufacturing, and Utilities, just to name a few. All of these projects started with a basic concept or idea, then were developed using the tools of the trade, e.g., Illustrator, Photoshop, etc. Just as a carpenter needs to know their tools, a graphic designer needs to know theirs too, and I want to help.

My knowledge and experience in Acrobat, Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop will get you off and running. In addition, my experience with digital photography, Camera Raw and HDR (High Dynamic Range Imaging) will be an added bonus!

Adobe InDesign

As a graphic designer and print professional who has regularly worked with InDesign (and before it, PageMaker), I have an in depth knowledge to share. We will focus on your needs and the way you need to use InDesign for your particular work. If you are just getting started or feel you have some gaps in your knowledge, I will help you with the fundamentals and help you round off your skills. If you already know what you need, I will help answer your questions and keep you moving forward.

Adobe Photoshop

I’ve been working with Photoshop (Photoshop CS) for over ten years as a graphic designer and print professional. During that time I’ve also trained other professional designers, those creating designs for both print and web.

He really knows his subject — Another great lesson with Chris. He is extremely knowledgeable, and will go through the why's of what he is instructing. I always feel I have gotten more than my money's worth when I finish a session with him. ...
