Learn Digital Photography and Visual Storytelling

Kingston, Ontario, Canada


After teaching and attending colleges, design schools, and universities across Canada, and being a passionate educator of graphic design and digital publishing, Brian Chard Design offers private instruction, courses, classes, training and professional development in graphic design, web design, and visual storytelling direct to industry professionals and students. Contact me to learn more.

Today’s educational institutions and online courses offer expensive learning that are designed more to satisfy the administration of the colleges, than to teach cutting-edge technologies and techniques that are in demand in the workplace. There are very few high-quality design classes taught by actual graphic designers who have worked in the industry for more than 20 years.

Get intensive, time-efficient, digital media training from a respected professional. Some basic abilities will be all you need to open up opportunities that require modern creative skills.

If you desire to learn visual storytelling, social media strategy, modern photography, website design, coding, Photoshop, InDesign, web animation or interactive new media, or if you desire to give your employees a refresher class or professional development in design, please contact me.
