I am Tom Kai, A professional photographer and graphic designer with an incredible passion for creating. I've been working in the creative field for the past 10 years and in that time I've learned a lot of useful information that I want to share with YOU! I am excited to have you in my course "Adobe Photoshop: Album Cover Design"
Why are album covers so important? This incredibly thriving and lucrative niche of graphic design has been around since the 60s and 70s with major bands using album covers as genius marketing material. Think of The Beatles crossing Abbey road, album covers sell the music! In the modern world we see artists popping up all over the place, from soundcloud rappers, to musicians hoping to make it big on tiktok and social media. All these up-and-coming artists need great album cover art to sell their music, which is why I wanted to create this course!
I have sat exactly where you are, going through tutorials, courses, you name it, but it got frustrating when the courses or tutorials weren't comprehensive enough to cover everything that I wanted it to. Now, I value my time a lot, but more importantly I value yours. It is vital to get everything you need from just one video, one course, and that is what my goal is with every single one of my courses. For this one specifically, my goal is to have it be the only course you will ever need to learn about album cover design in photoshop!
