The New Tuts+ Premium
The recently re-launched Tuts+ Premium is a service that provides top-tier training in a variety of creative fields. It includes a library of courses, $470 worth of educational eBooks, and 784 exclusive tutorials (and counting).
While we unfortunately can’t afford to provide the service for free, it’s only $19 a month – less than you’d spend on a couple of pizzas. I hope you’ll consider checking it out! In addition to learning a huge variety of new skills, it’s also a fantastic way to say thank you to Vectortuts+!
