WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR

Coaches, creatives and solopreneurs:

If you want to learn how to design your own graphics in Photoshop Creative Cloud and aren't sure where to begin, and want to know exactly what tools you'll need.

If you  want to design unique visual graphics and learn Photoshop basics:

Canva is great, but having control over your own graphics is better. Paying someone is also a great option but can add up fast. Learn step-by-step how I design all my own visuals in Adobe Photoshop.

If you want to attract your ideal client with beautiful design:

In addition to visual design and Photoshop basics, you'll learn how images, graphics and text areas work together for a wonderful client experience. 

If you like learning at your own pace:

You have access to the entire course as soon as you register and pay so you can binge watch or go slow. Also, you can get email support when you need it too.

If you are creative and ready to empower yourself with some design tech:

I know learning tech can feel a little overwhelming so I teach you the most essential tools without too many bells and whistles.

If you are cool with subscribing to Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud:

This course is pretty much how to design with Photoshop so if you want to dive in I think there is a monthly fee for the Creative Cloud. It's so empowering to know how to use it. Let's do it!
