New Designer on the iPad v2 is now live on Skillshare and Udemy!

Skillshare is a beginner's course and there will be the intermediate / advanced released in 1 week. Udemy has the full course.

There were a lot of updates from V1 in the new release of V2 and warranted a new course rather than adding updates.
Designer is like Adobe's Illustrator, where you can create logos, vector graphics, icons, infographics etc.

See the here for access to the courses. 🙂
Remember you can get one month of Skillshare for free if you're not already signed up.

The absolutely lovely was the guest with at his “fireside chat” on Friday at the . To be perfectly honest I really didn’t know much about her - not watching much mainstream TV for many years I was out of the loop. But she is funny, amazingly inspirational and has a huge heart to see small businesses thrive and I can see why she was sooooo popular with other people at the event. 😂🤩💜

If you are a small business why not enter Theo’s Small Business Sunday which runs on Sunday evenings on Twitter / X and Insta. Let him know why you should be considered and he picks 6 each week. 🤩 And this all started 13 years ago in his kitchen one Sunday afternoon.

With all this talk about pancakes today and a Tony Robinson p-p-p-pick up a pancake video shared by someone today I saw, (which I'd never heard of) I thought I'd do a quick "p-p-p-pick up a" post inspired by the advert that I relate with "p-p-p-pick up a" combined with pancakes in !
Now I'm hungry and want pancakes!

How do you have yours?

He's absolutely amazed that he was able to do video editing, web pages, animation and even creating a multi-page document for both professional print and as a flipbook. Totally blew him away as Adobe have included Adobe Stock with both video and stills in there.

From us at to you - wishing you a Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays using !

I had great fun with this. I'm not a natural designer (unlike Tim and our trainers) so I played a lot (as I do with most of our social media.

I started with a blank canved and used to create the background (using something like "wintry christmas mountain scene, cartoon style" (I really should write these down!) and feature to create the snowman.

I did try creating a santa sleigh with generative fill but the results weren't great so just decided our our logo with a rainbow light trail brush, grouped them together and made it fade in using the feature.

Added the text with a couple of brushes from color and light behind it to help it stand out, blending one as screen blend.
Lastly, I added a video using "twinkling lights" as my search, reduced the opacity and placed it behind everything except the main image and some music!

Have fun with - what are you going to create?

Use this link if you want to try Adobe Express - even though it's free it helps me out! :)

Have you experimented with yet?

Have a play and let me know what your ideal would be.

In this I used the to generate the basic woodland cabin wintry scene. I used to create the deer and owl.

Within I found a video of the moon with a black background and used a "screen" blend on it to blend the background, popped it in the middle and used a fade. You can't really see it's a video but never mind!
The snow over the top is another video available in Express, added a screen blend and I reduced the opacity.
Go on - have a play and see what you come up with! Tag us!

You can do anything and enables that as well as our training!

We know that for all our learners who have learned , and with us that there is no such thing as a silly question. Everyone starts at the beginning and some pick things up quicker than others which we cater for.

Also, Tim is editing a new Adobe Express course at this very moment, which is super exciting! This graphic was created in Adobe Express using a template provided, changing the text and typeface to what I wanted, adding in a new image and adding some simple animation. It started as a reel, and at the click of a couple of buttons I resized it to a square for other platforms and scheduled from within their super easy scheduling option! Love it!

Following our recent "there's no such thing as a stupid question" post, we had amazing feedback from Dena who's our biggest fan and has been on about 3 courses with us. She said this:

"Testify! 🙌 As a Red Rocket student, I can 100% say this is true. I love Tim's teaching style; so patient, well delivered, and with each question addressed in helpful detail, no matter how small - or odd! - the query. It's a safe space to learn or develop new skills ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐"

Eve from Strathclyde University recently did our Level 1 InDesign classroom course and came out feeling really confident in being able to use it for her job.

"I did the Level 1 InDesign course and I am really glad that I chose it. Tim the instructor was really nice and very clear with explaining everything. He was very patient with all of my questions and asked me what stuff I'll be using InDesign for so that he could tailor it to my needs. I now feel much more confident using InDesign."

Peonica got so much out of her training and came back for seconds!

I recently had a 2 day Indesign Course with Tim and I absolutely loved it - I can't recommend Red Rocket Studio enough!

Tim is an amazing teacher (definitely one of the best teachers I've ever had), he is not only extremely knowledgable but also kind and patient which makes it really easy to ask lots of questions! His teaching style was also exceptional, with clear demonstrations as well as time for us to practice what was being taught. The feel of the course was really relaxed and not intimidating at all.

Before taking this course, I had no experience using Indesign and within a short space of time I feel confident using it to build a wide variety of documents.

The after course support has also been amazing and Ally has answered any questions I have had really quickly.

Thank you so much Red Rocket Studio!! :)

More review goodness! 🤩💃

Sam from Ransom Publishing recently did a course with us then signed up the next week for the next level 2 as she loved it so much!

"Having only minimal InDesign experience, I was worried I wouldn't be able to keep up but the course was well paced with lots of time to practise and go over anything you had missed.

I'd recommend this course to anyone looking to develop their Indesign experience, it's invaluable in teaching you how to navigate the many different things that Indesign can do. Tim was very patient and explained things clearly.

Tim put me at ease and by the end of Level 1 and Level 2 I was pleasantly surprised by what I had been able to create! Don't worry if you're an absolute beginner. You'll be an expert in no time."

Thanks so much Sam!
