With a mockup, you get a better idea of how your designs will look in different mediums. On this course you'll learn how to create and work with them, by creating your very own mockup template.
About the course:
A mockup is a representation of a design that we've made digitally; be it a website, flyer, brochure, illustration, photograph, T-shirt etc. These mockups are used to show how the work would look if it were printed out on different mediums, and also to evaluate the quality of a design.
Let's say that someone asks you to make them a business card; if you show them the design on a business card mockup, that gives them more of an idea of what the design will actually look like once it's printed out on a real card.
I'll show you a quick and easy way of creating a mockup from a photograph of a brochure and turning that into a template you can use for any design.
What project are we going to develop?
On this course, you'll learn how to develop a Photoshop mockup from a real photograph. In this case we'll use a bi-fold brochure as a base which we'll to convert into an editable template. We'll then arrange the layers of the the file so it's ready to use and you can make it available to download, which is a great way of earning some extra income. You could also use it to promote your website or portfolio online; you can make the template available to other designers to download for free, but with the condition that they share your website.
Who is this course for?
This course is designed for anyone interested in graphic design, no matter what level of Photoshop you have. You'll learn new techniques and everything is explained very clearly so that even beginners can follow along.
