Instructor Biography

Benny Thaibert, Designer and trainer in Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.

I teach you by giving you hands on task. The teori is stored in the task. And pops when we need to do something we want. That's fast learning very suitable for online training.

I'm a Danish designer and photographer living in Copenhagen, Denmark. I'm Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI). I've taught students and professionals since 2003. They all now know how to make it the easy way in Adobe Software.

I know a lot of dirty tricks, due to my extensive design experience. And I know how to smack it together when a tight deadline show teeth. Because I'm not just a teacher. I'm also a professional designer.

All things may change and will change during time. That's why structure is crucial. With a proper and tight structure you will always make reviews and changes with a smile. I have that in mind when I teach you. I like to share.

My design style is Scandinavian but sometimes I travel (design wise).
