Most projects require at least a little bit of graphic design. Even if the project isn’t about images or even totally reliant on them, you’re going to want to add some highlighting graphics that really sell your concept, and that’s not something you can fake. Making, or even identifying, good images requires a solid foundational knowledge of what makes high-quality graphic design. And if you want to build that skill, the Graphic Design Diploma Masterclass is here to change your life.

These are eight classes, spread out over a one-month period with about three hours of coursework per week that will teach you everything you need to know about the nuts and bolts of graphic design. You’ll learn the “Holy Trinity” of graphic design apps: Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign. You’ll also develop a “Designer’s Eye” — an intuitive understanding of what makes an image engaging and powerful. And most importantly, you’ll learn the secret language of images: what lines, shapes, colors, texture, and space communicate to the human brain, and how to harness that language to accomplish your design goals.

The Graphic Design Diploma Masterclass also awards you a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) certificate, which is a quality mark indicating high quality training according to an independent body operating across all market sectors.

If you work in publishing, or design, or anything where you are involved with things people see in real life or online, all these skills will make you more hirable and give you more control over your career. Even if you’re not making the images yourself, your knowledge of how it all works will allow you to manage artists and graphic designers on your team with real knowledge and insight. In short, this is a valuable skill and a worthwhile way to spend your time, so what are you waiting for?
