This course teaches basic graphic design principles and examples specifically as they apply to t-shirt and print-on-demand design. It is geared toward beginners and those who may have been designing for a while but feel they're just winging it and would like some real training. This is not abstract theory; rather, you'll see real-life examples of good and bad design and how to make a "meh" design better.
Sellers are entering the print-on-demand field in record numbers. Most have no graphic design training whatsoever. This course gives you a foundation for creating sellable designs, which will put you ahead of 95% of the competition. This can make or break you in the POD field; I want to help you make it!
I use Photoshop and Illustrator to teach this course. However, the principles you'll learn are not software-dependent, which makes it super flexible and applicable to anyone in print on demand, even if you're designing primarily on mobile.
