Graphic Design 101Graphic design 101.
Ok so here is a little guide on how to get started at anything graphic design-related. Theorists of this subject will probably find the idea rather repulsive, but note, its neither a quick guideline, nor an encyclopedia article with strict definitions or anything related to the so called (god forbid) good design. This guide is meant for the folks that wish to make their stuff look good, for the casual guy that wants to make a website, a home printed sign, etc, rather than for someone that wants to make a living out of it.

Staring at the distant lights;
