Stacy has been for providing one-on-one assistance to students on all levels (beginner, intermediate and advance) that have either been struggling to complete their design projects, understand how to use the programs Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign separately or together, help because they are failing their design course or need feedback and guidance in their professional career.
“Best graphics design tutor I ever came across.
I can't thank you enough Stacy!
Very helpful and knows what she's talking about!”
– Zeina Farouki, Private Lessons: Graphic Design Homework Help
Zeina had a week to complete and turn in a snowboard design concept for her final project and she didn't understand the specs of the project, know her target audience or how to correctly set up her file for the printer. She was afraid to fail the class.
We first tackled a niche market of who would buy her snowboard design, and then Stacy had Zeina design the layout on paper first to make sure the idea would work before going digital. Then Stacy helped Zeina build the file in Illustrator and set up the artwork for the printer. Stacy served as a guide and mentor throughout the process.
Zeina turned in her project on-time and received an A grade in the class allowing her to graduate.
Lily was failing her website design course, didn't know HTML or CSS, and had two weeks to complete and turn in a functioning website for her final project.
Stacy taught Lily website design basics, HTML, CSS, and how to use Dreamweaver. Stacy had Lily design a wireframe on paper to decide if any changes needed to be made. Lily could also use the design as a guide while building the website. Lily created the graphics in Photoshop and built the website using basic code in Dreamweaver with Stacy's help.
Lily turned in her website on-time, received an A grade, and was the only student to turn in a complete and functioning website. Her instructor was impressed she hand-coded the website and didn't rely on a template like other students.
Stacy's #1 Design Tip
Before starting any design project, always ask yourself this question...
"Where is it going?"
When you know where your design project will be printed or what hosting platform it will reside on, then you can start designing it.
