During this week I’ve continued with my graphic research as well as starting to learn how to use indesign to be able to start designing.
Graphic design research:
After looking a little bit online I decided to go to the library and get some books related to graphic design. The section was so trapping that I ended up taking a large list of books home that I read through the week. The titles of the books are:
- The graphic artist’s book by jack Buchan
- White graphics by Gail dribbler
- Type and color by Michael Beaumont
- Graphic design school by David dabner
- Letters and image by massin
Learning to use indesign:
I tried to set a meeting with Chris so he could teach me how to use indesign but the MacSuite was already booked so I watched online tutorials from youtube to learn the basics and then asked my brother, who is a graphic designer, to teach me over FaceTime about more specific skills. After that and the notes I took I started playing around with it and experimenting to learn while practicing.
