Description

Project 1: Learn Photoshop by Making a Card Game from Scratch!

Have you ever wanted to make a card game to play with your friends and family? In this course, we're going to design the cards, rulebook and box cover for a Crazy Eights-type card game, and upload them online and get them printed on-demand.

I will start by showing you a completed deck, then we will go into Adobe Photoshop and make the entire deck, the rulebook, and the box from scratch. I will also show you how to make the same rulebook in InDesign.

When all the parts are finished, we will upload it to a game manufacturer and get it printed, as well as ready to sell to others.

If you've ever wanted to make your own card game, this is the course to watch!

Within a few hours, you should have a complete card game to sell online!

Who is the target audience?
  • For those who want to make a card game, but don't know where to start
  • For those with a card game created, but need to know how to publish it
  • For those who want passive income selling their games online
  • For those who want to practice common skills in Photoshop

Certified Technical Trainer

I've been teaching since 2004. I have a background in photography and graphic design, and also computer programming and repair. I currently work at several corporate training centers, teaching Adobe Creative Suite and the Microsoft Office Suite programs. I also teach computer programming on a one-on-one basis.

I've done multiple types of projects throughout my career, and I will bring many of them to you through Professor's Projects, using the same techniques and skills I used for the original projects. From games to newspaper ads to filming and editing, I will show you what you need to know to get the job done.
