As you probably guessed, I’m Steve Bain, creator of the illustration projects, feature descriptions, and design discussions you’ll find here.
I’m a communication consultant working in hardware and software development industry. I’m also founder of Definio Communications, Inc. whose mission is to help companies manage their authoring teams from print-based to online knowledge delivery and to leverage Web content management system solutions.
In my younger days, I worked as publications designer, technical graphic illustrator, and publishing specialist before the advent of digital technology. I was also an early adapter of digital illustration software. I later added writer to my skill set which enabled me to pursue a career as a technical communicator.
In the early part of my communication career, I explored all types of subjects related to web design, illustration, publishing, and bitmap editing applications. Most of this content was written for technology columns, feature articles, journal submissions, white papers, case studies, and instructional tutorials that have appeared in a variety of consumer magazines, newspapers, trade journals, and business documents. I have also authored books on these subjects, many of which are still available on Amazon.
The CorelDRAW Graphics Suite tutorials here are posted purely as information. Some of these are reposts that appear elsewhere. Some apply to previous versions of Corel’s graphics suite, while others have been written or updated to apply to recent versions. In either case, the principles and concepts discussed remain largely consistent for past and future versions. Feel free to add comments, suggestions, and ideas.
Although graphics illustration is still a hobby, I founded Definio Communications — a company whose mission is to help companies migrate from print-based authoring to cloud-based knowledge delivery.
