This course, starts from the ground up. Beginning with the very basics of drawing, working with circles and using/combining other shapes Together to create Illustrations. After we have covered all of the basics it will move on to far more complex techniques. These will allow to produce your own illustrations, logos, business cards and so much more.

Value & Experience

(for students just starting out)

Great Beginner program, A-Z MasterClasses, student community 

More personal experience, with higher accountability, but you can't go at your own pace

Some really good instructors, but there is an overwhelming selection and no guidance whatsoever

No curation, learning good things in the wrong time may hurt your progress and motivation 

Value & Experience

(for more advanced students)

Pro community, advanced webinars, creative projects 

Much fewer advanced trainings, high chance of no added value

No real progression here just an endless library of promising course titles

If you find a good channel and already have solid grounds you may find great inspiration 

Total cost in a Year

You can tie your fee to your XP level paying month-to-month

$ - $$

Live, classroom-based training is the most expensive option by far

$$$ - $$$$

Marketplaces are cheap but there is little quality control

$

Nothing is really free, you pay in time of searching pieces of info

Depth of knowledge you gain

(beyond how-to skills)

Insider tips, design principles covered in great detail, by a highly accomplished designer and veteran instructor

Progress at the pace of the group, little time to cover more than how-to-do skills, 

Anyone can upload a course on any subject, there are some really good teachers, but most keep their prime content to their own site

There is so much content it is hard to tell, you need to know exactly what you are looking for to find the gems

Finding exactly what you need

Some niche application or exotic subjects are not covered, but all that a graphic- or motion designer needs 

There is far less variety and levels, depending on where you live there might be none

These marketplaces have a huge library favor courses you might find exotic subjects also but it's not easy to spot bad quality 

The opposite, you will be shown a great lot of distractions and click-baits that you don't need

Getting help when you are stuck

Great engaged student community, fast email support 

Live help during the training with some follow up, but you can't hold the class for long

Usually at this price there is little help in short answers if any at all

The search algorithm is your best bet, in smaller channels you may get short answers

Career advancement

Insider tips, career advice, portfolio friendly project briefs and exercises, student collaborations 

For working in-house, sometimes the certificate from a reputable training center is enough 

For freelancing there is little help

You might find tips or content on the subject in general, but beyond that you are on your own

No credibility of a formal training, no curation or expiry date on content, very high risk of finding bad advice that take you off track

Finally a comprehensive tutorial of how to navigate Ai! I have designed with many programs but never needed to understand and use Vector graphics until recently. As a newbie I have been struggling with learning and creating in these design spaces! I am still slowly getting through these courses... but wow, what a difference it is making so far. I am actually learning !

I actually took Martin's InDesign Masterclass course several years ago when I started working in communications, and I came out of it with the ability to be extremely efficient with one of my recurring tasks (monthly PDF newsletter). When the opportunity for professional development came up at work this year, I decided to go back to Martin's courses after having tried to up-skill other Adobe software using our company's Pluralsight subscription and not being too happy with the results. I was so glad to find out that Yes I'm a Designer now offers Premiere Pro and After Effects courses along with Illustrator and Photoshop, which made the monthly subscription a better sell for me at work (when I took InDesign, I only signed up for that course instead of going with the subscription, since there were much fewer courses back in the day). I just finished the Illustrator Masterclass and am working my way through Photoshop, and I can recommend the Masterclasses even for people who already use the software regularly but were initially self taught, so perhaps didn't know all the tips and tricks that can end up saving a ton of time on a project and make the tasks more fun. Obviously, if you're a beginner (like I was with InDesign back in the day), these courses are also perfect.

I have watched numerous Photoshop tutorials in the past to improve my skills. I am so glad I found this course, I just wish I had have found it sooner instead of wasting my time with Youtube tutorials. Martins teaching style is fantastic and he explains things in such a clear and concise way. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to learn how to use photoshop. Honestly don't waste your time with Youtube tutorials just sign up to this course it really is worth it.
