So, you want to learn how to make awesome event flyers? Great! I'm Kirk Nelson, and in this course I'll teach you everything you need to know to make your own flyers. By the end of the course, you'll have created two awesome flyers of your own. Let's get started!

1.1 Introduction

Greetings and salutations. Welcome to event flyer design. My name is Kirk Nelson. I'm a regular instructor here at Tuts+. I'm a professional graphics artist with over 15 years of experience. My work has appeared in international trade publications almost 300 times. I'm an Adobe certified expert. I'm just your friendly neighborhood graphics geek. And I'll be your guide on this voyage into designing event flyers. So this is a beginning to intermediate level course. I'm assuming some familiarity with Photoshop's interface and the basic feature sets. You should be familiar with concepts like layers, selections, masks and pretty much with the brush tools. I'll be going fairly slow, and I'll walk you through each step of the process. But still, it's very helpful if you have some familiarity with the software already. The course is broken down into two projects. The first is a sporting event flyer design. We'll create this Global Cup soccer flyer. In this project, we will start with developing concepts, going to sketching. Even doing some custom printable photography in developing those photos. And then assembling all those elements together into a very engaging and attractive flyer design. After that, we'll move onto the concert flyer design. And again, we'll start all the way back with developing the concepts, doing some sketch work. I'll show you how to source some stock photography. And then how to use those as references for some really fun illustration work. I've got some custom stock to use in here for these glowing smoke effects. And along the way, I'll be presenting a plethora of tips, and tricks, and techniques within Photoshop. Some great illustration and graphic design concepts. We're gonna have a lot of fun with this. All I really ask of you is to do your best to learn and grow. That's my goal in every single one of my courses. I'm not as concerned with the end product as I am concerned with the fact that you learned something in it. So mostly, I want to inspire you. I want you to finish the course as a better graphics artist with a little bit more skill. Or maybe even just a little bit more inspiration than you had when you started it. So with that, let's get going. Launch lesson number two, and we'll talk about the tools that we're going to need to use.
