How to Become an Online Graphic Designer without Going to School

As a creative person, you’ve dreamt of being a graphic designer but never take the first step. Just the thought of going to school and spending a ton of money and time is enough to squash that dream.

And sitting for months learning Photoshop or Illustrator is something you can only afford to do once you’re making money and somehow, through only a miracle, have the time.

The truth is that going to school or learning a complicated graphics program may not be right for you, or even necessary at all.

So here’s the good news:

You can become an online graphic designer by getting an easy-to-use design tool, watching quick but helpful tutorials, and spending a few minutes practicing what you’ve just learned.

And you can do all this without going to school or spending ridiculous amounts of time and money learning design software.

If you’re ready to start a full-time business using just your desktop or laptop computer or excited to have a part-time designer gig working from home, you can start right now making graphics for online businesses.

Here’s how!

How to Learn Graphic Design on Your Own

There are really only two things you need to be a designer in the online world:

  1. Graphic design software that’s easy and starts you off with design inspiration… yet is powerful and flexible enough to let your creativity take over.
  2. A short course or tutorial series that helps you learn with hands-on action as you go.

Below you’ll find a free graphics software app and a short, 9-part video tutorial series that’ll get you started towards becoming an online designer… in under one hour.

So, what are you waiting for?!

Just think about this… if you were to have gone to a graphic design school instead of watching this video tutorial, you might have only just finished the first chapter or two of your brand new, and expensive, design theory book.

Instead, you’ve just learned actionable design that you can build upon each day. And you can now offer your graphic design services to other businesses who want online images for advertising, social media, products, and content.

More Design Inspiration

I hope you’re excited for what the future holds for you as a graphic designer. From working part time to making it a full-time career… either way, you’ve discovered a fun and creative way to earn some cash, work at home, and serve others with your design talent.
