Before & After is published by designer and author John McWade. John has been training designers for decades through his magazine and books. I’m a self taught designer and I credit much of what I’ve learned to my interactions with Before & After. I think it was the subtitle “How to design cool stuff” that caught my attention. Back in the day (when magazines came in the mail), I would devour every issue and try to recreate each lesson. Not only did I learn my software, I learned the design “secrets” behind the techniques.
John has a free 1 hour design class Things Every Designer Should Know “filled with some of our coolest techniques for turning your design project from blah into bravo! These design essentials can be used by nondesigners as tips, tricks, and shortcuts, and by professionals as building blocks to greater understanding.”
