Get smart with online design tutorials

Do you see someone’s flyer and say, “How did they do that?” Or you see someone else’s website and wonder, “Where did they come up with that idea?”

I’ve done it too many times to count. But one thing that has increased my skills and opened up my creativity even more during the past couple of months has been online tutorials.

Tutorials are a free, easy-to-understand way of learning the tricks that people use to make such eye-catching design material. Some of them are videos, others you can just read or download, but the end result is the same. These tutorials give you the step-by-step instruction needed to create great effects, learn the proper way to perform certain functions and give inspiring ideas to complement your next design project.

Here are a few great places to find free tutorials:
