Well, it’s time for the roundups of the year. There are a thousand blogs all doing their own roundups, so I figured I’d start with a small roundup of my own. Don’t worry, I’ve got a few bigger roundups that will happen throughout this week, such as the Top 100 Photoshop Tutorials of 2008 from PhotoshopLady, and the Must-See Posts of 2008.
So here are the 10 posts that I believe are the hands-down, absolute best tutorials on graphic design during 2008. They were selected based on the techniques presented, the skills taught, and the final outcome. So if you’re looking to improve your graphic design skills, start with these tutorials and you’ll be well on your way to becoming a design master.
