Day 1 Wrap-Up

All right. Well, what a great day. It's been a fun. It's gone by so fast. You know, things are good when it the way. All right, So, um, we are done for the day. Lisa, tell us what we're gonna be doing tomorrow. When we come back tomorrow morning, we're going to dive into the land of logos. We're gonna look at art based logo's graphic locus as well as typographic Lugo's. We're also gonna look at creating or altering some of the fonts, turning it in outlines and making custom type out of existing funds were also going to dive into color 3101 I'm gonna teach you just enough so that you can accurately pick colors to go in your promotional pieces that convey the right message that you're trying to sin. So there's some really easy tips on which colors to pick. We're gonna take a look at a color will, so we can take the color that you're starting out with. And I'm gonna teach you how to find colors that go with it very easily, okay? And then we're going to dive into creating business cards we...

've had alive. We're gonna have a live makeover in class. One of you lucky folks. At least I hope you feel like you're you'll be lucky after I designed it. If you like, it will do a live logo and business card makeover here in class. But I also have a big reveal of the two Internet winners that we had that have sent me their old business card as well as some of their prize winning photos. So we're gonna have the big reveal on those two makeovers and then last but not least, we're gonna dive into designing ads for magazines. So very cool looking forward to it. All right, well, I have to announce an upcoming course for everyone that is watching. International best selling author Josh Kaufman is coming to creativelive. He's coming February 5th, 14th and 15th. So that's Valentine's A. And this is the personal MBA. So the course is going to give you a foundation of knowledge that everyone needs to succeed in their business. Um, he's going to teach us the master to master the fundamentals, to hone our business instincts as well as save a fortune intuition. So we like that Goto Josh coffins course page and watch his video there, and that will give you more information about how you can come and join Josh in the Creative Life studio and be part of it here. So, I mean, I can't imagine a creative entrepreneur who wouldn't need that class speaking for myself, too. So, like Susan said, today has been day one of three days of this graphic design class with weeks up, and I'm loving it so far. And I think my favorite thing is that Lisa is telling it like it is one of the things that you'll get with this course is Lisa telling you what not to do, which I think is just a valuable is knowing exactly what to dio. So sometimes you know, if you're looking on YouTube or whatever for how to design something, nobody's gonna really tell you what looks good. Like Lisa is telling you. So I appreciate that, Lisa, And if you appreciate that, too, you can purchase the course for $149. That's all three days. But if you buy it right now, you can get it for $99 watch it whenever you want. So there you go. I'm really excited about this, and I'm excited to see what we learned the next couple of days. I think that's a wrap for us. Thanks for joining us.

… exactly what I needed for current and upcoming projects! Actually, it was much MORE than I thought I needed. Once it all sank in, I realized just how much I didn’t know, but needed to know. The training is top-notch and very effective, and just to top that off with a cherry, Lesa Snider is the most engaging instructor with whom I’ve had the privilege to learn. I can’t recommend this course, Graphic Design for Everyone enough. … talk about “clicking” with an instructor… A self-professed Southern geek/nerd with a sense of humor is a darned near perfect click between that instructor and this student. I love to learn anyway, but Lesa Snider’s classes are a wonderful blend of fun that runs throughout the entire course of technically advanced concepts and application. Where do you find a course where you laugh as much as you learn (both massively)? … a Lesa Snider course. I’ve already put the course material to good use and look forward to using the class info and skills even more in future projects.

I've been a fan of CreativeLive for along time. I've attended many classes, but this is one of my most favorite sessions. I think Lesa is a great trainer and find I am learning a great deal. I liked it so much I actually purchased this course. I would watch any course she was part of. Great graphics design course and wonderful tips.

I enjoyed it very much. However, I hated that I could not pause or rewind,,,so I had no choice, had to purchase. :)Lesa is a terrific Instructor. She takes the hardship out of the learning process with her wonderful ever so friendly personality. She instead turns it into a joy and I enjoy very much her courses! Thank You Lesa!
