About this class

Are you looking to expand your skill set? Maybe you are someone with no design experience but interested in visual design as a potential career? Want to make your company newsletter look less terrible?

This bootcamp is for anyone who wants to understand how to make beautiful and (most importantly) effective digital designs.

Visual design is more than simply being able to make something look “nice.” Good designers understand how to use the principles of design and human visual perception to communicate effectively with their target audience — to inspire them, encourage them to buy something, engage with a community, etc.

In tis online bootcamp, we’ll be learning the basic stages of the design process (research, ideation, wireframing, design) and design theory fundamentals (color, composition, and typography). Then, you’ll get to practice applying these new skills through in-class activities, and have the opportunity to iterate on and improve your designs through critique.
