Dear Prospective Student,
To succeed one must ask the right preliminary questions.
The best approach to successful mastery of life, teaching, graphic design, visual thinking and making music is to approach it with "open thinking" not "fix thinking". We are all here to learn from one another and seize the day toward our potential.
With over 37 years experience in the graphic design industry serving clients including IBM, AMD and Silicon Labs and with over 11 years as an Austin Community College adjunct instructor teaching Graphic Design, Digital Publishing (Adobe CS6 InDesign), Digital Imaging (Adobe CS6 PhotoShop) as well as traditional print production classes; I have much to contribute and to learn.
A serious teacher only has meaning in relationship to a serious student.
As an instructional tutor my job is to help equip you with the knowledge, craft and skills to successfully master graphic design and publishing industry practices and technologies.
Look forward to an opportunity to work with you.

Best Regards,

Mark
Visual Thinker, Senior Graphic Designer and Seasoned Instructor
