Autodesk Inventor

Along with AutoCAD I decided to learn 3D modeling using Inventor as 3D modeling is unquestionably the direction CAD is moving. Ultimately, I would like to use both CAD and graphic design in combination in a postion that entails marketing of a technical product.

Autodesk AutoCAD

With a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Computer Aided Design was part of the curriculum. Things have changed a great deal since then, both in software and hardware. I spent a considerable number of years as a mechanical designer, and I decided it would be a good idea to refresh some skills. With AutoCAD being one of the leading software titles I went through the Lynda.com online tutorial from beginner to advanced.

Adobe Illustrator

With a shift in career path towards graphic design and marketing I know learning Adobe Illustrator will be a useful tool that goes hand in hand with Adobe Photoshop. Although Photoshop is amazing in what it can do with editing photos and adding photo effects, Illustrator is a must have to work with resolution independent vector graphic illustrations.

Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is the industry standard in photo editing software. I've enjoyed using it since my days at American Comfort Furniture where I would use it to make the most attractive price tags possible to showcase the goods we had on display. I also used it extensively in Levron for promoting our clients, and our network.
