I took both the Graphic Design AND the Web Design programs at The Bold Edge and boy, was it a smart move for me. It has been a truly invaluable learning experience; I have learnt so much from all of the constructive input and guidance throughout each lesson of the course. The Bold Edge gave me the skills that enabled me to create a career out of my talent and passion for design. I highly recommend The Bold Edge to anyone looking to go into this line of work.
The Bold Edge Web Design Course is an excellent and highly recommended course to take. Besides for the course being amazing, the support is unbelievable. Malkie was always available to answer any questions and was constantly furthering our knowledge with great tips and advice. I was able to feel her dedication and patience to her students which really helped me succeed in this course. I feel that I have gained the skills and confidence to step into the real world of web design
I tend to learn better live than through video, so I was worried about taking a course that would be primarily through video. My concern was absolutely unfounded, everything was given over as clearly as sitting in a classroom with truly excellent support. I looked into lots of courses before settling on the Bold Edge! One of my favorite parts of the web design program was the live office hours, when we were able to sort of meet each other and share in everyone's progress and journeys of creating their websites. and even though the classes are video-based everything was given over as clearly as if classes were live. This course is up- to-date ,expert, and gives you the latest design trends! PLUS, Malkie arranged for each student to have a real client so we will end up with a real website at the end of the course and will definitely give me an edge in the working world when I am already coming in with a website done for an actual client.
I was concerned that the Web Design course would only be on a very basic level or that I would have to do a lot of learning in different areas before starting to work. But it was so in depth and everything I need to get started on my own was included in the course. I loved every aspect of this course. The coding, working out all the programs, the design...so much learning and great feedback and guidance on so many levels! It was fulfilling- and fun too! Best of all, I learned everything I needed to get my business started!
I recommend the PhotoCreative course to people looking to refine their graphic talent- it’s clear cut, hands-on, well-priced, and has amazing support! I took this course after the Graphic Design course. I was afraid there would be repetition but there wasn’t! I spend most of my time designing albums, photo books, collages, etc. There were tons of new ideas, tips, and tricks! Great for anyone looking to expand their graphics skills!
I was worried that the PhotoCreative course won't teach me enough to get into the business scene! Boy was I wrong! I love Malkie’s clear teaching style and emphasis on how to get creative in photoshop. Since I’ve taken other courses I know how great the Bold Edge is! Malkie makes the complicated clear! Sidenote: I even used the knowledge I gained in the course Ito design logos and packaging for clients!
The lessons were very excellent, things were explained very clearly. The feedback that i received from my homework was also great and the fact that i am still able to go back and review things after completing the course is really great - the system is amazing.
I loved being able to go from beginner to expert. I started the course being almost scared of using Adobe programs because when you first open them, they look overwhelming and complex. The course was an amazing learning and growing experience.
So to answer your question: How has working or training to become a Graphic Designer through The Bold Edge helped you out these days? First of all, my whole business credit goes to you - such such amazing training, b"H i hold down quite a lot of jobs... and specifically these days, I'm used to working from home, and have everything all set up. Thanks a ton for such an amazing graphics course! Many other people I speak too never learned so many of the stuff that you taught!
When I first got your email about the online live classes I was so excited! Firstly, I love brushing up on my skills (always ready to learn more!) and secondly it was definitely a good thing to entertain these long boring days!! Thanks so much- you give the greatest lessons!!! Always waiting to hear more tips 😀
