I need a graphic design crash course to build more visually appealing websites. I am currently using Wordpress + Thesis theme and the idea is to integrate graphics into my websites.
I don’t have any graphic design background and would like to learn any open source tool (freely available for download). I’m not sure if GIMP would make it but maybe Photoshop or similar application.
I run Ubuntu Linux and Mac OS X so I guess it’ll be easier to find an application for Linux but if you know of any FREE Mac software to do this I’m open to suggestions.
Ideal candidate will reply to this post with a tentative program including estimated number of hours to complete the course, suggested software tools and availability.
This is something I would like to have completed THIS YEAR and I may be available starting December 28. I’m located at GMT-5 so please consider this when applying.
How would you suggest conducting this training? Video conferencing? Desktop sharing? I have a skype userID if you think we can make it trough skype.
I am running on a very tied budget so please take this into consideration when bidding. I understand a professional may spend years of studies for graphic design but I just need somebody to put in the right track.
I would think out of the top of my head that this tutor might eventually become a partner when needing graphics to my sites so if everything goes smooth this could be a long term relationship.
