About This Class

d26bb699

This course is for: Graphic Designers, Illustrators, Hand Letterers and anyone else who is curious...

This course teaches you how to work in ONLY black and white, no grey!

Learning to make your designs work in black and white ensures they will be effective, no matter how they are printed. This comes in super handy, especially when your clients have a low production budget or want to have a minimalistic look. Black and white is truly a classic palate and stands out brilliantly wherever it is placed.

Black and white is here to stay, so why not learn how to master this minimalistic color palate...and have some fun while you learn!

My design studio, Vision City, has become known for black and white design. It has been something my clients have been coming to me for over the last decade. My entire recycled art print and greeting card brand is comprised of a black and white color palate. Learning this timeless and essential skill is a must for any designer or illustrator.

Ready to master black and white? 

Lets get started!
