Depending on your goals of tuition I will tailor the lesson to work on the skills that you want to focus on. Prior to the lesson we will discuss objectives and I will devise a plan to work with you.

As an experienced graphic designer and web designer I have the advantage of being easily able to create my own marketing materials, products, graphics and website to promote my illustration. Whilst you have an eye for what looks good without some technical know-how or an understanding of the design ‘rules’ you may be struggling to create what you envision and to ensure the outcome meets your own high standards.

Things we could cover

Design fundamentals:

  • Working with grids and guides

  • Typography

Guidance to create your own:

  • Business cards, postcards, graphics, products such as greeting cards or stationery

Software skills:

  • Recommended for affordability: Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher

  • Adobe Creative Cloud: Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign

  • Online tools such as Canva


This is online tuition via Skype. You will need a connection to the internet, a microphone (in-built is okay) and a webcam to enable me to provide feedback.
