About This Class

Design Beginners Bootcamp is an intensive design workout. Starting from scratch you’ll study a total of 12 mini courses (titles shown in UPPERCASE), each one building on what you’ve learned previously to build your skills and confidence fast. You’ll learn a mixture of Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign skills as you create very specific things (like infographics, branding, social imagery), and at the same time learn the graphic design and typographic theory that underpins them. This is the course I’d have wanted as a young designer. I hope you find it super useful, and you end up brimming with design confidence.
