When searching for a visual design course, you want a class that covers visual design comprehensively, including the industry-standard design applications, visual design theory, and portfolio development. You can also choose to focus on a specific application within visual design, including popular apps like Sketch, Adobe XD, Adobe Photoshop, and Illustrator, or related fields like UX design.
Sketch is one of the most popular apps for visual designers to design websites, apps, and more. You can create designs using multiple artboards (for phones, tablets, and desktops), create styles, use symbols to create flexible design components, build working prototypes, export graphics to give developers, and more. Sketch helps designers hand off their work to developers using Sketch Cloud, which lets you send a link with all the design specs (great for clients, user testing, and web developers). It's worth noting that Sketch is only available for Macs (which is what most designers use).Explore Sketch Classes
