Question from Francisco R.
Hi, I’m new for design and I would like to know what is the best way to start and the best software?
Answer from General A.
Hi there- we don't recommend this to a design beginner. We have a Visual Design 101 course coming up that we encourage beginners to join. Popular software includes Adobe and Sketch. But we advised learning the fundamentals of the design before learning the software. Good luck!
