About This Class

In this class, you are going to learn how to design your first website, step by step, in an easy and effective way.

Whether you are a freelancer who wants to show your works, an artisan who wants to display your products, an entrepreneur starting your own company, a writer who wants to write a blog, an influencer who wants to have a professional and cool website or you just want to have a clean and beautiful web page to talk to the world, don’t miss this class.

You will learn how to design your website from the basics. From defining who you are, what you want to say and show, to a complete design with a stunning color palette and great fonts.

The only thing that might be helpful for you would be having a basic knowledge of a graphic design tool, such as: Gimp, Canva, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc...

At the end of each video, I’m going to give you a “homework” based on the lesson. As a class project, you’ll be asked to put together all that you’ve previously done to design your own website.
