About TheDesignaholic

The Designaholic was originally created as a teaching aid for classes in InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator at Texas Tech University.  Posts were geared towards class assignments, supporting tips and Q & A.

The goal of this site is to bring news, tutorials and interviews to designers that are new to graphic design.  This is a natural outgrowth of what the site was initially created for and it is my hope it will act as an educational and inspirational tool for those in the graphic design field.
