Course Description

Have you ever asked yourself:

  • what you should wear to look good?
  • how to improve your home's interiors?
  • how to shoot better looking and more meaningful photos?
  • why some graphic design works are better than others?

The answers to all of those questions is found in the elements and principles of art and design. They are the general rules and guidelines that help to make a design look as good as it can. In this course I will explain how you can apply them easily to your life to dress up fabulous, shoot better photos and decorate your home's interiors. If you are a novice graphic designer, you will also learn how to improve your graphics' look and meaning.

In clothing, elements and principles will help you to look good. They can flatter your figure and optically correct your body's imperfections. At home, elements and principles will help you to improve the look of your interiors, to optically correct your rooms' defects and to introduce any atmosphere you want. In photography and graphic design, elements and principles will help you with communication and will affect your image's mood.

If you want to look better, learn some new ideas for your own home and improve your photography (or even graphic design) skills, this course is for you. These simple rules work for anyone, anywhere in the world, any age.

Instructor Biography

Asia Ciesla, Senior Graphic Designer, Animator, Microstocks Author

Graphics and animation have been my work and passion for over 10 years. I can't wait to share my passion with you. My experience contains e-learning, TV, advertising and press. I have designed, animated and sometimes done some programming for Oxford University Press, BBC, Johnson&Johnson and others. I like taking up new challenges and experimenting. Proof? I created, designed and released Pablo the Pixel Art Builder, the first ever Photoshop pixel art building add-on. My latest Photoshop plugin was featured by Adobe on the Adobe Exchange website. I consequently extend my knowledge as far as video productions, multimedia and innovation are concerned. I live and work in London.
