So lets get started without business card.

In this lecture we'll learn how to setup bleeds and safety margin for our document.Which is a required document setup if you want to sell your designs online.

 I will be adding a template of the business card with the margins added, which means you may skip this lecture if you want to go straight to designing the business card. Although it is recommended that you learn how to set the margins up first.

Graphic Designer

Hi, I have been a graphic designer on the side for two years now and started making my living out of it from the second year. I specialize in print designs, game graphics designs etc. 

I find interest in gaming ( league of legends ), reading business books and I am also a musician. I have always loved teaching the skills that I learn my self to others and want to get better at it. I love sharing my knowledge and make it understandable to absolutely anyone. I hope you find my courses useful and valuable.
