【職業心得】活用創意製作專業Portfolio 由Photoshop與Illustrator到InDesign

活用創意製作專業設計Portfolio-由PhotoshopIllustratorInDesign

想擠身設計、廣告或出版等創意相關職業的有志者都應該知道,創意跟學歷未必直接相關,所以在業界的招聘面試中,僱主都會看重作品集(Portfolio)去釐定設計師的「實力」。

[blockquote type=”blockquote_line” align=”left”]我的Portfolio應該有什麼?[/blockquote]

一份專業的Portfolio包含設計師過去商業或業餘的作品,如平面原稿或印刷品,或各種非平面作品(如雕塑、實體模型等)的照片。各種作品當中,印刷作品為最重要,因為海報、宣傳單張、商品包裝、報章雜誌廣告等項目,都是業界最常見的工作內容。此外,為對應近年普遍化的流動裝置使用習慣,相關應用的圖像美工對業界帶來重大的影響,即使微細如一個App的Logo設計,也是市場殷切的技術。注意展示這些印刷及美工作品,要求除了美觀和具創意外,也必須具實用性,及表現到對成本效益的考慮,而要取得平衡,專業圖像處理軟件Adobe Photoshop (PS)與Illustrator (Ai)是不二的工具。

[blockquote type=”blockquote_line” align=”left”]所以,全部印出來就可以了嗎?[/blockquote]很多印刷品都陸續被電子化,PS和Ai盡管能提供最好的圖像處理,但要處理過百頁計的書籍,內容包括文字、圖片,甚至影片的擺放、還要製作多個版本去對應不同的閱讀裝置,甚至輸出成獨立的應用程式,則要依賴全面的版式設計軟件Adobe InDesign。一些聰明的設計師看準這電子化及閱讀應用所帶來的商機,爭相掌握專業的版式設計技術,並在適合的情況下,用平板電腦展示,或以電子方式傳達他們的Portfolio,以表現他們技術的全面性。

[blockquote type=”blockquote_line” align=”left”]我能學到這些技術,並做出好的Portfolio嗎?[/blockquote]天行凝方的設計課程均由專業認可導師所教授,並讓您通過完成課程習作,體會專業的項目管理,製作出屬於你的Portfolio,這些課程包括:

PS與Ai平面設計文憑課程 (CEF認可)

  • 全面完整地傳授學員Photoshop三大範疇-顏色修正(Colour Enhancement)、相片修正(Photo Retouch)及設計圖片(Design Photo),以及Illustrator兩大要素:藝術性插畫(Artistic Illustration)及排版設計(Layout Design),裝備你應付任何圖像創作需求。

InDesign版式設計課程

  • 教導使用Adobe Creative Suite中最易上手的軟件InDesign,讓學員做到易讀性高和令人印象深刻的頁面製作,並通過實習CS6版本的新功能,以達到平板裝置,印刷兼善的閱讀作品,課程相當適合欲掌握出版業標準,或在平面設計技術上進階到更多元化,及更高的生產力的人士。
