    Materials, Tools, and Productivity
The focus of this class is on designing the point of sales (POS) materials of a retail environment. Do you
know how the materials in a winery tasting room are created? Do you know where the tasting menus,
event posters/flyers, business cards, wine club brochures, wine labels, nametags, signs, computer
displays, video displays etc. come from?
Adobe Illustrator is used to design the logo, Adobe Photoshop is used to incorporate photos of people
and places into the design, and Adobe InDesign is used to publish the design. Graphic design with these
three programs will be the focus of this course. At the end of the semester, we will spend one week on
interactive design and one week on video editing.

Materials

I recommend getting a Lynda.com video tutorial subscription so that you can have expert video tutorials
guide you through learning Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. These programs are not easy to learn
and substandard tutorials cause frustration. Purchasing a Lynda.com video tutorial subscription will be
the best $25/month you have ever spent (on marketing education). Try a free one-day pass and decide
for yourself.
drho.ro/tutsplus
I recommend subscribing to Vectortuts+, Psdtuts+, and Phototuts+ so that you can have access to
tutorials that demonstrate how designers are using Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign in a cutting-edge
manner. These sites offer premium tutorials that you can purchase a la carte, or, you can pay $9 a month
for a premium Tuts+ membership.

Exchange is not necessarily the best place to get Photoshop resources, but it gives you a good idea of
the types of Photoshop resources that are available. For example, Photoshop layer styles are similar
to Illustrator graphic styles. Because Photoshop is more popular than Illustrator, there are more free
Photoshop layer styles available on the web.
