Amazing class! Gary covers the whole creative process from hand sketching to final digital layouts. He's provided great tips, shortcuts, software & website resources, making the creative process a lot easier!
Great class. Helped me a lot.
I think the course is a good start in developing a solid approach towards designing an interface and implementing it digitally. Sketching it helps you not lose sight of the goal when you move to the screen, so I was happy to see that the step of upfront thinking and mapping out the intent and elements wasn't skipped, like it often is in hectic professional design projects.

I'm a designer, founder, builder, leader, and creator who can't stop working on problems that interest me. In my spare time I go for long walks on the beach and...Sorry, wrong profile.

To sum it all up, I love creating things. It doesn't matter if it's a design challenge or a business problem. I want to get my hands dirty and find the heart of the matter. If that sounds like you, cool! We're probably a 96.2% match. If not that's ok, we're all special in our own way.
