    Instructor Biography

    Dawid Tuminski, Adobe Certified Expert Designer and Online Entrepreneur

    I've been using graphical software for many years now and I've recently decided to share my knowledge with others and I always try to do it in a straight-to-the-point kind of way with a touch of entertainment.

    To tell you the truth I never thought of taking up a career as a teacher of any kind. In fact, I was always reluctant to agree with people, who always encouraged me to teach, saying: You should be a teacher!

    But here I am and I am really enjoying it!

    At first I started learning Photoshop. Then it was Illustrator and logo design principles. I kind of stuck with these two programs for a few years to eventually start learning web development through Dreamweaver and Wordpress.

    My decision to start teaching was based on the quality of trainings and tutorials I saw and participated in. I thought to myself: Man. I really could do this!

    So here I am now, online on Udemy and offline, in my home city.
