Design your own WordPress themes from scratch for fun and profit.

Have you ever noticed that web designers make money by developing their own themes for WordPress and selling them on marketplaces like Envato? Well, now you can too! Learn WordPress theme design from the ground up in this massive Stone River eLearning course.

Join award-winning veteran trainer Geoff Blake as he takes you through the entire workflow process of scratch-building a WordPress theme using Photoshop!

About the Course

The training begins in Photoshop, where you’ll be introduced to some setup options and settings to optimize Photoshop for web design. Then, learn about building and using various grid systems, which will serve as the template for the theme layout. Next, it’s on to the next phase in the workflow process, wireframing and UI design in Photoshop. Learn how to stay organized and work quickly and efficiently.

Once the wireframe structure is complete, you’ll see how to apply design to the wireframe, and then move the entire layout from Photoshop into the world of code.

You’ll discover how to construct a WordPress theme from the ground up, starting with a completely blank canvas! You’ll see a variety of techniques for working between Photoshop, WordPress’s architecture, and the HTML, PHP, and CSS code that pulls it all together.

Fast and Beautiful Thumbnail Design!

Fast and Beautiful Thumbnail Design!

See how I quickly make the thumbnail for this class and what I do to make all of my new thumbnails very quickly while showing a consistently branded image plus clearly communicating what the purpose of the video class is!

Jerry Banfield with EDUfyre

In 2005 while I was in college at the University of South Carolina, I tried to start working online. I signed up for an MLM program and a survey website. A month later, I had refunds from both and figured working online was not possible because everything was a scam. The truth was I was afraid to fail again.

In 2011, I moved in with my wife and launched an online business focusing on video game addiction in an attempt to avoid dealing with any of my other problems. In a few months, I changed my business to selling shirts because I realized there was no money in video game addiction. A year after starting my business, I dropped out of my criminology PHD program at the University of South Florida to run my business full time which by then had changed to helping clients with Facebook and Google ads based on my experience failing to do them successfully for myself.

In 2013, I starting sharing everything I knew for free on YouTube because I hoped it would help me get more clients. By April 2014, I was nearly bankrupt after failing at 15+ different business models. I was also nearly dead from trying to drink the pain away and fortunately the fear of death motivated me to get into recovery. Being in recovery motivated me to focus more on being of true service to others and less on what I would get out of it. I started making courses online with Udemy which soon turned into my first real business. I partnered with as many talented instructors as I could and learned from top instructors how to get my courses the most sales.

In 2015, I tried making some inspirational videos sharing what I learned in recovery and got an amazing response on YouTube. To make the background on my videos more interesting, I started making the inspirational videos while playing video games. To make a more helpful website, I hired a freelancer to convert the videos into blog posts including this about page originally.

In the course I am concentrating on creating beautiful designs for Merch By Amazon and other Print On Demand merchandizing sites (like RedBubble, Etsy, Sunfrog, Zazzle, Cafepress, Teespring, Spreadshirt, Teepublic, etc.)

The most important Photoshop techniques for both web and print design

In order to be competitive as a graphic designer, you need to know Photoshop.

Photoshop freelancers can command fees of $100 / hour and yet it is an intuitive, easy-to-learn application.

My name’s Rob Cubbon, and I’ve been using Photoshop for over 2 decades.

In order to be competitive as a graphic designer, you need to know Photoshop.

Photoshop freelancers can command fees of $100 / hour and yet it is an intuitive, easy-to-learn application.

My name’s Rob Cubbon, and I’ve been using Photoshop for over 2 decades.

I want to share with you the best techniques I learned in that time as they’re what you’ll find most useful in real world, hands-on graphic and web design situations. And all the Photoshop documents (PSDs) used in the course are available for download.

I’ll show you:

  • techniques for improving landscape photography
  • how to create three dimensional graphics from 2 dimensional photos
  • how to extend images
  • how to make selections in images with channels to create interesting effects
  • how to improve portrait photography, how to cut out and create montages
  • how to smooth a model’s skin
  • how to create effect with text and typography
  • how to create images specifically for social media
  • how to create images specifically for web
  • how to use guides, to align and distribute objects within an image
  • how to stylise images to maximise their impact
  • all about selections, layers, channels and paths
  • knowledge about file size, resolution and color mode

all this I’ll show you using features that are available in all recent versions of Photoshop (from early Creative Suite versions right up to today’s Creative Cloud).

I’ll show you the short cuts and keystrokes in Mac and PC while I perform these techniques so you can start working like a professional today

and I’ll also explain the technicalities behind file size, resolution and colour modes so you will always supply the correct finished product for all the Photoshop work you do in the future.

Photoshop is my favourite design tool and I want to show you how much fun it is to use.

Rob Cubbon Photoshop- Real World Hands-on Freelance Mastery

Designing A Website in Photoshop, Illustrator (& GIMP)

Designing A Website in Photoshop, Illustrator (& GIMP)

Instructor: Rob Cubbon

OverviewDescriptionAbout

Show a visual representation of a website to a client first. Make the development process easy!

In this course I will show you how to design a pixel-perfect, beautiful website design using the Adobe photo editing (Photoshop) and vector editing (Illustrator) applications – I will also show you how to do most of the same with the free tool GIMP.

In this course I will show you how to design a pixel-perfect, beautiful website design using the Adobe photo editing (Photoshop) and vector editing (Illustrator) applications – I will also show you how to do most of the same with the free tool GIMP.

This course would be extremely useful for graphic designers and web designers who want to show their clients exactly what they’ll get before they start developing the website

By creating and amending any web page to look exactly the way the client wants, you can start charging in excess of $3000 and much more for every website you produce

Because clients will pay extra for the custom feel that you will give their websites

Are you worried that you won’t be able to deliver on the development of this website afterwards? Well, don’t worry!

Because I will show you the tricks to change beautiful WordPress themes (we use the Genesis sample child theme) in a browser using Developer Tools that will be then be easy to develop after client has passed the design.

You will also learn loads of extra tricks in Photoshop, Illustrator and GIMP:

  • I will teach you how to keep the Photoshop layers and elements in order and label them correctly
  • I will teach you how to group layers to further organise your layers in the layer palette
  • I will teach you how to use vectors (live text, shape layers and vector smart object) where ever possible – as resizing them won’t lose you any quality or resolution
  • I will teach you how to use vector smart objects because they won’t lose you any quality after resizing either and you have the added advantage of editing one and all the others changing accordingly
  • I will teach you how to select multiple layers in the layer palette
  • And I will teach you how, with multiple layers selected with the Move tool (V), you can distribute and align the objects by using the buttons in the option bar at the top

And by the time the course is finished you will be able to work up an exact visual replica of any website, mobile app, tablet app or any sort of digital interface that you care to imagine

Join me on my new course Designing a Website using Photoshop, Illustrator and GIMP.

My name is Rob and I have been running a design business since 2006. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
