“Having some knowledge in visual design, I wasn't sure if I needed this course but decided to take the leap. It was a fantastic course than gave me more insight toward visual guidelines, ideas and strategies that I have already put into place the day after class. I recommend this class to anyone looking to gain more knowledge in this field.”
Learned design fundamentals and concepts through the visual design courses
“The Visual Design for Web & Mobile class offers great tips and direction for building websites visually and accurately. I learned so much in just 3 days and felt prepared to start my own projects right away. Dan is a patient instructor and gives great advice on your project throughout the 3-day class.”
Completed the Visual Design Certificate program
“Great class. Very clear instruction. Good balance of activities and "lecture". Lots of hands on help. I came in a novice and left feeling like a professional.”
Learned the keys to designing for print and web in the Visual Design Certificate program
“Enthusiastic, friendly, intelligent instructors.”
Earned a certificate in visual design
“I really benefited from the way the class alternated between demos and then repeating those demos in an exercise. Also, the way the textbook is set up, providing all the files, is foolproof if I need to refresh on what I learned later... As a professional designer, it was also nice to be taught by someone that could comment on which aspects of the programs are useful in day to day work.”
