Deconstructing Design in Photoshop
with Dave Clayton
Take inspiration from good design and make it your own. Join Dave Clayton as he takes you into Photoshop and demonstrates how you can start with an existing design and build on top of it to make something completely unique as a tool to help you learn and improve your craft. When you learn an instrument you play other people’s music, when you learn to cook you use other people’s recipes, and it is no different when you are learning design. In this class you’ll learn how to find inspiration, extract from PDFs, add vector images, incorporate stock photos into your design, work with templates, as well as tips and techniques for adding all the final touches needed to create a complete design.
