“Far more powerful than Canva, but ridiculously easier than Photoshop.”
-Eliza Nichols, instructor
Hey there! Eliza here, your resident graphic design instructor.
Except. . . I didn’t mean to become a graphic designer.
In fact, I’m a writer. And it wasn’t until I started my degree in Technical Communications that I learned graphic design would be part of the requirement.
I wasn’t worried. My focus would still be on writing. Besides, how hard could it be to design stuff?
Goodness gracious, I was stupidly naive!
First of all...
I wasn’t even an artist! I couldn’t draw my way out of a coloring book.
Yet here I was, learning new software at a cadence no one should have to keep up with. I learned how to make logos, design websites, illustrate graphics, create posters, infographics, even book covers.
Let me tell you, graphic design is no easy-peasy, skate until you make it profession!
And because I wasn’t an artist, I had to devise my own methods for illustrating and designing great graphics.
Or…if I’m being honest, I had to find ways to cheat. AND I GOT GOOD AT CHEATING.
Which made me GREAT at graphic design.
In case you’re wondering, I share ALL of my graphic design cheats in my Become a Graphic Designer in 5 Hours: for Business Owners class.
So quit settling for Canva! Stop struggling to afford a graphic designer! Take this class!
Then I started my career with the federal government.
My job was to write and design maintenance instructions for nuclear reactors on submarines and aircraft carriers [yes, really].
My first day on the job, I fired up my computer, excited to prove myself. But there was a problem. A big problem.
I had NO design software on my computer.
I immediately went to my boss, who smiled sweetly and said, “You know how we said you could get any software you wanted? Well, we weren’t lying, but. . . you can’t.”
In case you’re wondering, I was still very much expected to illustrate graphics and create awesome designs. Software or not.
I remember the next 60 seconds of my life like a bad movie.
I sat back down at my now useless computer. I felt myself flush red. I fought back tears (don’t you dare cry your first day on the job!).
Should I quit? On the first day?
I put my hand on my bag—the one I’d just bought for my new job—the job I’d just moved hundreds of miles to take—and now it was the job that was impossible to do.
Or was it?
If I could cheat my way into becoming an awesome graphic designer, surely I could find a way to illustrate nuclear reactor components without having design software.
So I did!
I absolutely, magically, and incredibly figured out how to illustrate and design graphics without using design software.
And now I want to share my methods with you!
