Confidence through tailored lessons. Graphic Design, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign tutoring tailored to the needs and level of the learner.

Methodology

I strive to teach my students through their own experience. My lessons are based on the Learning by doing methodology. As a subject and professional field Graphic Design also suggests a lot of practice. But in order to exercise anything it needs to be properly introduced beforehand. Therefor my lessons include a piece of solid theoretical background in order to provide my students with the confidence needed for practicing with thought. I'm trying to answer not only the how questions but also the whats and whys, that the less experienced creatives sometimes forget to ask.
My main program includes Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Indesign competences, as well as general concepts of colour theory, composition, visual communication, design principles, elements of art in design, prepress and publishing, creative thinking, photography, visual identity and much more.

Experience

I'm an experienced graphic designer and tutor that loves to help creative minds of all age and level to develop their graphic design skills and Adobe applications competences with the pace they need.

My name is Svetla and I’m 35 years old. I’ve been working in the creative industry for over a decade now.

My first education is Philology – lots of reading and writing in other words, as well as, lots of anthropology, mythology, philosophy, communication, aesthetics, story telling and creative thinking. Later I moved to computers and computer arts and I got my Graphic Design professional qualification. Currently I’m finishing an extra master study in Media Design.

I’ve had the luck to travel a lot and work as a designer in several countries which has given me a wider perspective of the industry and an opened mind for the world in general.

In one or another way I’ve been always teaching throughout my career. Whether it has been interns within some government funded programs when I worked as a chief designer or later my own students within Svetla Graphics Design School.

I like helping others get better in what they like doing and supporting them in gaining the confidence they need. I like helping people understand that there is enough creative jobs for everyone. Unlike other industries the creative one is not that much a competition but more a community based support where creatives from all over the world share knowledge, assets, ideas and believes.

And I'm always happy and glad on behalf of all the creative people to welcome anyone who truly wishes to be part of it.

Wether you want to study Graphic Design as a profession or as a hobby, I’ll walk you through it. I truly believe that its never too late or too early to learn something new, so no matter your age or starting competence, you can be a designer.

I believe in the lifelong learning so I'm myself always busy with some extra courses or classes and a continuous improvement.

I love Svetla’s classes. She inspires me all the time. I started taking Graphic Design lessons just for pleasure but Svetla’s support and engagement made me think of more serious professional realization as a graphic designer. I also started painting and made my own creative stuff. Svetla is really an effective teacher, her lessons are very interesting experience. There’s always something new to learn from her. She is the best teacher I have ever had.

I started taking Photoshop and Illustrator lessons with Svetla over two years ago and it’s one of the best things I have ever done for myself and my skillset. As a person who had always wanted to use graphics as a means for creative expression but had 0 knowledge how to go about that, Svetla gave me all the necessary knowledge and skills to grow creatively. Svetla has over a decade of experience with Adobe Creative Software, both academic and working as a graphic designer, and her teaching method is extremely thorough and engaging. One of the best things about her teaching approach is that apart from having created a highly comprehensive step-by-step program with lessons and exercises, she is also flexible with helping with personal projects, both in the creative process and also by giving constructive feedback. I am very grateful for her ongoing support and dedication with my graphic design journey.

Svetla is an extremely skillful graphic designer and dedicated professionalist when it comes to her students. She has been always making sure that both the theoretical and practical classes are interesting, engaging and last but not least meaningful. I highly recommend her online classes. I have been taking classes for 1.5 year already and I can firmly state that I have learned really a lot from her.
