  1. Appreciate Video! Excuse me for butting in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you thought about – Fiymaria Graphic Gainer (should be on google have a look)? It is a good one of a kind guide for getting the best graphic design for your project without the hard work. Ive heard some decent things about it and my friend got astronomical success with it.

  2. I just discovered your channel and I found your video really helpful already. With the lockdown I want to use time to dive into graphic design. I'm a total beginner and can't wait to discover more. Thanks for creating this

  3. This year marks 10 years (a whole decade) of being a professional graphic designer for me. I have never been able to draw/sketch much more than a stick figure, and it has never affected my job. All that to say, if you’re not a good artist with pen & paper, don’t let that deter you from becoming a digital designer.

  4. And if I don't know to draw but I'm still learning to design, it does matter anymore? I mean, if I have already some experience and I wanna learn more from tutorials to improve my designs, it matters to know how to draw?
    My opinion is, if you're going to be a freelancer on a niche like graphic design, drawing skills don't matter because you can use your tools as a method to express your ideas from a vast imagination as in my case.

  5. Hey there. I'm quite a newbie when it comes to graphics design, despite that I used Photoshop before (During the CS3 era) while playing Counter-Strike. To be honest, I ain't that well-versed in drawing, but I'm a but good in typography, since I write letters in a more, futuristic way using different lines. I'm having a hard time to draw something, despite I can imagine or picture something, since, I have to admit, my drawing skills are just like kindergarten drawings. Is there a way to improve it? I really do hope to have a feedback from you, sir. 🙂

  6. New subbie here 🙂 Thank you for sharing this useful content! Do you have any tips on drawing for design when it comes to interior book layout's? My main confusion is about choosing how much written content should go on a page. Thanks for your time!
