About This Class

Create the 5 fundamental elements of rapid visual design: a color palette, type set, image set, layout, and usability test. Taking time with these simple steps will ensure your website grabs attention and makes the impression you want.

Go from wireframes to gorgeous in Erica Heinz’s 80-minute class on designing responsive websites—including branding, user interface design, and visual prototypes. Combining universal design principles like color and imagery with web-specific concepts like usability, user-centered design, and legibility, it’s a full guide for the class project: creating real mock-ups. In addition to 9 video lessons, the class includes comprehensive lists of design resources and a Sketch template for your source files. Whether you give your final designs to a developer or go on to build them yourself, this class helps you get the look you need.
