Design is a very lucrative skill...nice try though

You need to perfect photoshop; you’d need to work on some pictures before you inject them into your design....

You’ll also need to learn more about proportion so pictures won’t appear smudged

Color combo too you gotta work on....

If you wanna design for commercial purposes, better start learning coreldraw now, thank me later!

And try and recreate nice designs you see around....

You’d be fine!

Female Designer? that's what I've been expecting to see long on nairaland.

You still need more than Illustractor to perfect your work, try to also learn CorelDRaw and Photoshop, it'll help you alot.

Welcome onboard

Hi....Dear,

There are lot of places you can intern, but make sure they are good in this art!..(Lagos has alot of them compared to other states)

as for the designs above, they are still far from been "there", someone already pointed out the issues already..

•••ways to get better••••

Discipline and practise...very key
follow very good guys online (that are in your niche)
Attend design workshops and courses
Pay to learn, its worth it
watch tonnes of videos
Intern.
Get a design mentor, who can criticize your jobs and help you get better.
etc..

I could help possibly for a short while due to my schedule, in reviewing your jobs...say a week!
I work majorly on PS

All the best!

So color separation on AI is as effective as that of Corel?

Bro, you can achieve the same thing with both of them.
I started out with Corel but now focused on Adobe

nice work! Corel draw isn't really necessary IMO since illustrator does the job better. there are a lot of YouTube tutorials that can help you develop your skills though, cos judging from the images above you still have a lot of work to do.
Big ups. photoshop will be a plus too, but I'd advise you to take it one step at a time
Re: Calling All Nairaland Graphic Designers by CHRISLINGO(m): 4:56pm On Aug 26, 2018
I guess i am very late here, nonetheless, will stil say a thing or two. much ve bin said by the dsigners above. in addition, i will advise u go on with photoshop. u can acomplish alot with it. start by learning the basics. then move onto typography, then colors, composition and image basic edits. learn these wit patience, dnt wori too much on wat all tools does, jst focus on basics. afterwich take tutorial video courses on flyer dsigns, u wil find a great deal on youtube. there is usualy a pattern asociated wit evri individual dsigners. identify nd folow d paterns. practise wit abt 10 flyer vids until u can recreate dem witout using any guides. do dis wit logo tut vids also. making sure u undastand color theory in dsign. on d long run, recreate any gud dsign u cme acros. dis builds up ur creativity prowess such dat u ve d ability 2 conceive ur own unique concept for any design... i wil sugest u take youtube tuts like mirrom channel, nd also find sm1 2 guide u tru d process. note: criticism is necesary 4 grwth
