When we launched Design Instruct a little over 2 years ago, we had one goal in mind: to publish top quality creative content for artists so that they may do great things with their talent and creativity. Our tutorials were just the beginning.
Design Instruct has always been about learning. Whether you’re a student in a design course, a professional looking for some inspiration, or a self-taught enthusiast, Design Instruct was always meant to serve as a stepping stone to doing great things.
We wanted to be that place that you go to when your creative juices start to run a bit dry. We wanted to be that place where you find some brand new techniques that artists are discovering every day. We wanted to be that place where new ideas and creativity were always exhibited. We wanted to be the catalyst for some awe-inspiring work!
Suffice it to say that we love the creative arts. Whether it’s designing t-shirts, posters, graphics, photography, and everything else under the sun, we love all of it. Design Instruct comes from a place of passion and respect for what creative professionals do on a daily basis and we hope that it shows in what we’ve published so far.
The eBooks that we’ve put together symbolizes the last 2 years of Design Instruct. We looked back on what we’ve been able to achieve and what we haven’t yet and the one aspect of Design Instruct we knew were very proud of was our tutorials. In the eBooks, you’ll find some of the most beautiful, most loved, and the best techniques that we’ve published all in an easy to read, easy to follow package.
The eBooks are provided in various formats for use on the most popular eBook readers, tablet computers, and other mobile devices so now you can take your tutorials anywhere and learn anywhere.
The covers were designed by two of Design Instruct’s contributors, Miguel Cardona and David Peña. We think they’re just great! A bonus cover was also designed by Zena Santos whose work never fails to impress.
In the eBooks, you’ll also find some interview questions that shine some light on what makes Design Instruct contributors tick. Including what their best projects were; what they’re working on now; and we asked them about whose work they admire.
All in all, we think we’ve put together a really nice package that not only pays tribute to the last two years of Design Instruct but also serves as a milestone as we move forward in the years to come.
