About this workshop

Are you a designer or entrepreneur with a vision but failing to bring it to life? Using your left brain, we will develop your right brain. Learn how to hone your design skills to bring an idea to life with purposeful and thoughtful combination of imagery, typography, composition, hierarchy and color.

We will dive into the psychology of color theory, the history of typography and the power of imagery. Building upon this knowledge, you will be able to clearly articulate your creative vision in order to design or direct any creative project: branding, web design, packaging, presentations, or anything needing a visual eye.

This course will allow you to be a more thoughtful and considerate designer, with the ability to defend your work and articulate the success of your designs. Or, it will make you a better client, with the ability to be clear in what you are looking for, understand the design language, and get the most out of your designers.

What past students say:

Anya was a great instructor very helpful. She made sure everyone was getting something out of this class. It was enjoyable and fun as well! — Courtney Taniguchi

I loved the exercises that we did. I think discussing our ideas and answers with one another really took my process to the next level. It really helped me with my UX Design team for a project we're about to tackle that's located in Dallas, Texas. She knows her stuff and has a lot of experience. — Chris Kim
