Last week, I was stuck in the middle of a design project because I wasn’t sure what tool and method to use for what I was envisioning. I was pressed for deadline and didn’t have much time to figure out how to create what I wanted on my own. At that point I thought to myself, this is the 21st century! Surely I should be able to find out how to do this online. So my search began to learn this trick. In less than 3 mins, my problem was solved. Although I didn’t end up using this in my final design, I was grateful for the knowledge I gained. Also, I felt a sense of togetherness and “having each other’s back” kind of feeling. Well all know that there is NO way for each of us to know everything there is to know about our design programs. As a matter of fact, I learn something new almost all the time when I explore in my design programs and sometimes even when I don’t explore. So the sharing of information is useful, to everyone.
So thank you fellow designers for sharing your knowledge through tutorials and articles online. It was refreshing to know that the exact information I needed was out there. So, for that, I am creating a tutorial myself that I soon will share in hopes to “give back” to the design community some how.
Here are some links that I found that have tutorials using various design tools:
