One of my want to learn Graphics Design.
Does anyone know about any good institution for learning Graphics Design in Dhaka? Please recommend some with costing.
tell your friend to self study. those so called courses aren't worth it. there's tons of courses on torrents.
yes but without any support/guide, it is really hard to study something.

i have download some lynda tutorials from torrent.and i think it's enough for graphics design.
you will not find any good graphics design institute in Dhaka.if you want to study about it go to india and study on it with work.it's very cheap in india.
some institute of bangladesh teach it like course 4 month to 6 month .i don't think it's enough for you.my advice to you download fresh lynda tutorial from torrent and add some graphics designee forum to solve your problem.after done some job, upload it youtube or share in those forum to get publicity and quality improved .
Somewhat of a digital artist here and I have two words: Teach yourself. The courses they offer aren't worth it. You'll be stuck in the low-end commercial limbo.
There are different sections of graphic designing, which is it that you speak of? I'll make this a generic post.
What to do:
Tinker with the tools of your software. The more you know your tool, the better you will get at your trade. I, personally, would not recommend Lynda.com but if you have enough patience and are completely new with Photoshop / Illustrator, get their tutorial videos. If you're stuck with a particular problem, google away. There are billions of tutorial websites out there and they come in real handy.
Start with small projects right away. Maybe a bokeh for a starter?
You have the internet at your disposal. BROWSE. Browse like you've never browsed before. A smart man once said creativity lies in the process of hiding your sources. This means, observe. Observe every single detail. Write the things you want to try down and make drafts in a sketch book; and while you're at it, don't touch that eraser. No idea is a bad idea. I recommend an old fashioned sketchbook because it's very easy to ctrl+z and del/enter which is the dead-end of many great ideas.
There are sites like deviantART.com that are great for browsing high-quality work. Great for inspiration and if you happen to make an account, you get feedback on your work.
Stay away from the font called Comic Sans.
Consistency is important. Try to stick to one weight of fonts, and at most three typefaces (where one is perfectly fine).
Resolution is important. If you're designing a banner / poster (online or print), you must stick to the resolution. Resizing things later is usually a bad idea, but isn't harmful as long as you aren't enlarging your elements. That ruins ruins your resolution, hence, your work.
(Note: Most prints are usually done in CMYK colour profile.)
You have to be very imaginative. It has to go to a stage where you instantly hear a word and have images go through your head on how it can be brought down on a canvas. Quoting Lulu from League of Legends, "You can see more with your eyes closed." Pick up random lines from books, songs and movies and try to imagine how to make those draw those words into a picture.
What not to do:
Do not - I repeat - do not use Comic Sans.
Don't ruin the aspect ratio of fonts. Play around with the kerning (spacing between letters) and lines.
Don't directly copy content from the web. You can only go as far as making your work based on borrowed content, not use them as your own (unless, of course, free to use stock elements.)
Don't be afraid to experiment. You're got yourself a creative licence the moment you stepped into this field.
Humans and designs alike require breathing space. Just because you have a lot of empty space doesn't mean you have to fill it up. Leave it at that. Overdone is way worse than simplicity - which, as a matter of fact, isn't really bad.
OMG-HE-IS-SO-GOOD-AT-THIS-WHY-I-AM-SUCH-A-FAILURE-EMOBLOODBLADEHATEGOTH. No. Just no. Things like these don't grow on people in one day. Don't give up. Keep at it, and it shall come around.
Another grave of ideas is the interval of time that follows this quote: "I am too tired to get up now. I'm sure I'll remember this in the morning." No, you won't. Get up, write it down.
Declare a personal vendetta against Comic Sans and you're gold.
