Listen cock-a-roach, my life story is coming to Blu-ray™ on September 6th, 2011. To celebrate the Scarface Blu-ray™ debut, my fans will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to design their own Scarface-inspired artwork.

A presentation about designing movie posters. I design some really cool fictional posters and also recreate some famous and recent films’ poster to show you awesome techniques.

You can learn keyboard shortcuts for the most commonly used text editing options like changing size, font, kerning, tracking, leading, paragraph alignment, baseline shift, style, capitalisation, hyphenation etc.
In this e-seminar I’m talking about the new interactive features of InDesign CS5. I show examples of creating interactive PDFs and animated SWFs files exported directly from InDesign. I speak about creating buttons, page transitions, embedding video files, creating animations and multi-state objects.

In Illustrator CS5 we have lots of interesting new features, which make life so much easier. These new tools can be applied nearly to any workflow, simple or complicated illustrations and they save you a lot of time and make using Illustrator fun.

In this tutorial you can learn how to quickly create a heart shape logo in Illustrator CS5 using the Pen tool, Smooth tool, Reflect tool, Shape Builder tool and Type tool. You can also learn how to save Symbols in Illustrator to reuse them later or to make changes to them.
Keep in mind that a logo should be always as simple as it can be, but at the same time unique. You don’t need complexity to make a good logo design. Less is more 🙂
