Graphic Design & Web Design 2018 Master Bundle

Mike Davies
3.5 10/12/2017
What I would highlight: I feel grateful with Learning247 for such an amazing selection of training courses. I have always wanted to get into graphic design. Thanks to Learning247 I am now designing mugs, T-shirts, posters, and so much more. The training videos are very easy to use and offer outstanding explanation of every program. Adobe Illustrator was my favorite course and I was able to design and get printed a 7 foot tall self standing poster for my friends business. A huge thank you to everyone at Learning247.

What I would highlight: I'd already took a PRINCE2 training course and to be honest this Learning24/7 online course was far more beneficial. It was easier to understand and you can go at your own pace. I recommend it.
