About Gabriel

I am 27 years old and I'm an alumni Graphic Designer from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. My primary strengths are in logo design, concept & development, drawing, digital manipulation, ad design, CD cover design, poster design, illustration, and a bit of photography. I have tutored students before at the college I went to from October 2005 to December 2007. Everyone has a different learning curve and way of learning. The key is to break the information down to where the particular individual can understand at their own level.

The program software that I know a lot about are Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Microsoft Word. My English, grammar and vocabulary in writing are very good, too.

I am available anytime of the week, Monday - Sunday, during daytime and afternoon hours from 8:00am - 5:00pm.

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 InDesign

I've been working with Adobe InDesign since 2006 to present day (about 6 years). I first started using the Adobe InDesign software program towards the end of my first year at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. During the course of my education and experience working with the program, I learned how to set up a document (margins, borders, gutters, document size) accurately according to whatever I'm using it for; like a brochure, booklet, or poster. I also learned how to use some of it's special features such as: text thread, text along a path, making a paragraph go around an image, and setting master pages.


I found that the more basic tools in InDesign are similar to that of Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator, which I am also already very familiar with. I took courses like; Digital Illustration, Advertising Design, and Editorial Design, in which the students primarily used Adobe InDesign to complete most of the assignments in those classes. Once I became a student tutor in my second year at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, for 2 years I tutored other students in the basics of using the Adobe InDesign software program.

Drawing

I've been drawing ever since the age of 7. At age 19 I went to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh for a 4 year degree in graphic design. At the beginning of my education there, I had life drawing, perspective drawing, and basic drawing courses. I had these courses twice a week for about two and a half months.

Specifically, light & shadow rendering, and proportion are the particular skills that I have excelled at. About 2 years into my education at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, I took up work/study as a student tutor. For about 2 years, I tutored fellow students on the basics of drawing & shading, perspective drawing, and life drawing courses that they needed help with. I even helped a few students out with marker rendering as well.
