What you'll learn in this design class:

Are you a UX designer looking to expand your skill set? Maybe you are someone with no design experience but interested in visual design as a potential career? Want to make your company newsletter look less terrible?

This bootcamp is for anyone who wants to understand how to make beautiful and (most importantly) effective digital designs.

Visual design is more than simply being able to make something look “nice.” Good designers understand how to use the principles of design and human visual perception to communicate effectively with their target audience — to inspire them, encourage them to buy something, engage with a community, etc.

In the first part of this bootcamp, we’ll be learning the basic stages of the design process (research, ideation, wireframing, design) and design theory fundamentals (color, composition, and typography). Then, you’ll get to practice applying these new skills through in-class activities, and have the opportunity to iterate on and improve your designs through critique.

  • Understand the value of design and the design process
  • Be familiar with key stages of the visual design process from research to final mockup
  • Understand how to apply design fundamentals (composition, typography, color)
  • Experience with giving, receiving, and applying design feedback
  • Practice using industry software (Sketch)
  • Leave with in-class projects that showcase new skills
Prereqs & Preparation:

All levels welcome, but this class will be geared towards those with no previous experience in visual / graphic design.

Just come with a Mac laptop and a trial of Sketch downloaded and ready to go: (PCs unfortunately do not support Sketch at this time — if you’d like to attend this Bootcamp with a PC and have some familiarity with Adobe Illustrator, please let us know and we can work to accommodate you!)

School Notes:
For students enrolling in 12 week part time and immersive classes, it is not recommended that you book more than one class simultaneously.
