Should I or Shouldn’t I?

Lately I have had quite a few requests for logo/header designs from fellow South African bloggers. Unfortunately, time is a scare resource at the moment, and I have bills to pay. This means my paying clients have to take preference, and my pro bono work has to take a back seat. Of course I’d rather be creating designs for you guys, and I’ll still try to do the occasional one from time to time 🙂

This brings me to my question I have for you? In my blog review over at Domkop, the dudes suggest I post some tutorials on Photoshop, sharing my pretty limited skills. Do you think this is a good idea? Or are they horribly off track? Comment and let me know.

If you are eager to learn some basic design skills, I can start by pointing you in the direction of some great sources of creative inspiration. Pixel2life is a tutorial search engine that covers just about every creative application. So if you “own” a copy of Photoshop, Paintshop Pro, Corel Draw, or Flash, but don’t know how to use it, get on over there and see if you can get some help. I have published a couple tutorials on this site in the past, and might I add, recieved some great website traffic to our company website.

Computer Arts is a best selling magazine that is subscribed to by just about anyone in the creative industry. It is avaliable in CNA at a whopping price of around 130 bucks per issue. Luckily for you, loads of their published stories and designs are avaliable on their website. And their tutorial section is great! Most of their tutorials are downloadable pdf files, averaging around 5mb. They are very detailed.

The promised analysis of this template design is almost complete and I’ll publish it soon. Promise.
