"...Should I take online classes?"
If you're wondering this, my answer is Yes! Don't be afraid or doubtful because you'll learn a lot.
Yesterday, July 17, I took my first ALT online workshop and let me share that experience with you. The workshop lasted 5 hours, included 4 classes and between each one of them a 10~15 minute break. The session where curated by Laurie Smitwick who talked us about Basic Design, and Mike & Alma Loveland about the use of design programs.
I must say I LOVED Laurie Smithwick of LEAP Design, she talked us about "Design Basics" like: 'Colors and Fonts in Graphic Design' and 'Logo Design'. She taught us how to design our blogs with the right colors by using a color palette, and also showed us how to choose fonts that could create the best impact in our design. Also we learned the process to create a logo; from brainstorming until the final product.
It was awesome! She made it very easy to understand and learn. At the end of each class there were Q&A sessions, and I was very happy to have one my questions about my logo answered; one that I had been wondering since a few days ago.
Even though I use Photoshop, I learned how to use some tools that I've never used before because I didn't know how to use them, and some new tricks that'll save me time. Finally I'll be able to design using Illustrator's pen! haha :)
Overall, the classes and curators were awesome; they have a lot of knowledge and shared it with us in a very simple, dynamic and fun way. About the platform in which the workshop was held: It had a nice layout, a friendly interface, fast connection, and a blog roll in where everybody shared their website, blog, instagram, etcetera.
Everybody was so nice, can't wait to visit their websites and blogs to leave some comments :) Remember I'll see you on Tuesday with an announcement of new and nice blog changes. Have a nice weekend ♥!
