About Robert

Professional graphic artists often turn to me for advice on how to accomplish tasks in graphics software. The questions range from how to use their software to how to be technically compliant. Some even refer to me as a Guru, a title I don't deserve, but I have been able to help them nearly 100% of the time. I am mostly self-taught, but I have gained much of my knowledge while on the job.

As a student, you will benefit from my 2 decades of experience using Adobe software as a professional graphic artist. I use InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator daily, and love sharing my knowledge. For any challenges you face as a student student, I hope to present simple and clear solutions.

Adobe Illustrator is my go-to app for creating logos and vector illustrations. Vectors are easier than you think and Illustrator has powerful editing tools to see your ideas through. InDesign is the most feature rich app for page design; in unity with Illustrator and Photoshop it efficiently pulls everything together. InDesign is a must-know app for any graphics pro.

With a keen understanding of its rich editing tools, Photoshop is considered by other pros to be my specialty. Combined with artistic ability it can produce spectacular results with retouching, compositing, and getting the most from your photos.

Whether you are aiming for a career as a graphic artist or adobe software is a requirement in your curriculum, a tutor like myself with practical experience and a love for graphic arts and helping others can help you get the most out of your course.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Illustrator

Illustrator is easier than you think! Once you learn the basic editing of vectors, a whole new world of possibilities exist. For logo design it is not only powerful but essential as a professional graphic artist. I can help.

Adobe InDesign

InDesign is where I put it all together. By using vector graphics created in Illustrator, raster images from Photoshop, and the rich text editing tools and layout features of InDesign I can teach students how to create professional looking designs for print and web. By using layer masks on images in Photoshop and importing them into InDesign one can even produce composite imagery right within the application. InDesign's blending features and vector tools enable a designer to achieve beautiful results. InDesign is capable of producing single or multi-page documents with output options from print to display to outdoor and even web.
I have been using InDesign and its robust features almost daily for over 10 years as a professional graphic artist.
