Learn to design websites for mobile phones, tablets, and desktops using the visual design principles of color, layout, and typography.
Visual conventions, standards, industry trends, web typography, grid systems, calls to actions, appropriate use of color, and much more will be covered through lectures and hands-on practice, giving you experience with the process and principles for designing responsive websites.
You will design and produce one or more projects in class to come out with portfolio material. Your work will be critiqued and you’ll get feedback to help improve your designs.
Great class. Coming from a development background with knowledge of Sketch and some basic graphic design concepts, I was able to relate to Dan's helpful and insightful feedback while working through the class website project. He provided suggestions covering a wide range of design elements - content, gestalt principles, typography, color, photo elements, the overall feel, etc.
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.
My professional experience up to this point has been primarily print based so when I learned Noble Desktop had a web and mobile class geared toward visual designers, such as myself, I immediately signed up and was very pleased with the results. The three day course offered an in-depth overview of visual theory, communication design, technical processes, industry practices and standards as it relates to cross platform web design. The assignments were pertinent, engaging and offered an opportunity to learn from fellow classmates. The course instructor was a highly effective instructor, attentive to each student and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend this class to others seeking to make a positive career change.
Classes content is very wide, full of import tips and details that help you improve your work. It's totally worth it!
If you want to break into web / digital design, this is a great way to break the ice and dive in.
The Visual Design bootcamp is a must for anyone getting into the UI field. Dan Rodney is a great instructor with lots of knowledge and enthusiasm. I learned a great deal in a short period of time. Very happy I decided to go with Noble Desktop.
Learned so much through the bootcamp! Now I feel more confident in creating projects on my own from start to finish.
Instructor was very easy to understand and I could easily follow along. Very good teaching while also letting you flex your creativity.
Dan made this course fun by letting us have so much creative control! He was encouraging and gave great critique.

In class you will be designing a website, so we encourage you to come with a concept (or real-life project) in mind. If you do not have one, the instructor will help you brainstorm ideas or will provide you with project ideas you can choose from. If you want to work on your own website design project, please collect as much content (text, images, logos, etc.) as you can ahead of time, and bring that to class so you’ll be ready to work!
