About This Class

Have you ever felt like a design wasn’t quite right, but didn’t know how to verbalize it?

I created this course for anyone - designers and non-designers alike - who wants to critique works of design in a more persuasive and rational way. 

Maybe you work with designers and want to be able to give them better feedback. Maybe you’re a designer yourself. Or maybe you’re just interested in design. 

In this course, I’ll teach you how to formulate an intelligent, well-structured, and fair design critique. Let’s get started!
