  • “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.”

    Jemal McClary

    Learned design fundamentals and concepts through the visual design courses

  • “I'd approached this class with an open mind because while I'm a "Photoshop veteran" I hadn't used it for website wire framing. Simply put the Photoshop for Web Design & UI course material is directly in line with the subject. There was much that I learned that I wished I had known about before for my own projects. I found the course's "real world" scenarios/examples to be very educational. The course's instructor Ethan was masterful.”

    Darryl Kaalund

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.”

    Victoria Greiss

Was truly impressed with the amount I took away and feel it was worth every penny. I'll be back again and will definitely recommend to friends!”

    Sharon Taylor

Visual Designers use Sketch, Adobe XD, & Photoshop

Visual Design
  • Visual design is the look and feel of a website, app, etc.
  • Visual design incorporates color, composition, typograph, photography, illustraton, and more to create attrictive and usable layouts.
  • Visual designers, also called User Interface (UI) designers, craft a visual language and hierarchy that combines UX (user experience), information architecture, and interaction.
Visual Design Applications
  • Photoshop has been around the longest and is used by many web designers. It is a photo editor with web design features added on, so some web designers are turning to other apps such as Sketch and Adobe XD which were created solely for the purpose of visual and UX design.
  • Sketch is a Mac only app that many web designers are using, and more people every day are switching to it. Not only can you create your designs (for website, apps, etc.), but you can even turn them into working protoypes to show clients and do user testing with.
  • Adobe XD is a newer Adobe app that is very similar to Sketch. It’s an easy to use app that enables you do design and protype your ideas. Unlike Sketch though, it works on Mac and PC. It’s the newest of these apps, and is still continuing to develop rapidly.
