Instructor Biography

ismail businge, Graphics Designer and webdesigner

Hi ,My name is ismail. I am a graphics designer and web developer/designer .
I have equal passion for both Programming and Designing though sometimes i find my self doing more programming than designing, its easy to dive into just fire up any text editor and you are good to go.

i also make free tutorials on youtube, about web design, web development, making money online and other awesome things to talk about.

I also do some 3d modeling and animation though i haven't done much of that lately as am concentrating alot on web development now days, when i get time i will make a course about 3d modeling and animation in either blender or cinema 4d.

i also love sharing knowledge as this is how i know what i know now.
