What if I told you that they have only been learning graphic design (and Photoshop in particular) part-time since March this year?! I feel so proud!

Here is the magazine cover from one of our early finishers, Megan Sutton. The colours are so delicious, plus Megan’s concept, composition and Photoshop skills are highly developed for the stage she is at in the course. The work is clever and scrumptiously beautiful!
