I know the ins and outs of photoshop, but my designs still look like crap. Anyone know of any places on the web (free or paid) where I can learn about the principals of graphic design? And don't say lynda.com because I have a subscription and they barely have anything of this subject.
Have you checked out the offerings at Pratt, Parsons, SVA, Cooper Union, CUNY -- the first 4 each a school in your town with an international reputation for their art/design programs? There may be online opportunities, or you might just have to put on your shoes and socks (;^) and sit in a classroom for an hour or two on a weekend.
