who is this course for?
For aspiring designers
For creators & entrepreneurs
Learn the tools and skills to create stand out graphics for your business, social channels, and websites.
For PMs, marketers, and engineers
Over-the-shoulder videos and walkthroughs for non-designers
This course is built for non-designers who care about design, but feel intimidated, scared, or don't have confidence in making design decisions.

You might also be an engineer, PM, or marketing director who wants to better communicate your design needs, but lack the the visual communication skills to feel comfortable expressing ideas.
Why an email course?
No logins or passwords to remember
You may have never taken an email course. In fact, I had only taken one before building this. But here's the special thing about emails: They're always easily accessible without having to remember a login.
Here's an example of what these lessons will look like in your inbox. Incredibly easy to find and are organized like an actual online course.
What you'll get
Emails nudging you to take action
Our design challenge is setup to help you learn incrementally, each day. We start on Mondays, and end on Friday. This gives you the weekend to catch up.
Here's what you'll get each day:
An email with a specific design lesson
A link to a less than 20 minute video
A Figma design file to follow along with
Take the weekends off!
The design challenge starts every Monday.
Over four weeks, I'll send a lesson Monday - Friday. Use the weekends to catch up on any missed videos.
The design tool the pros use
Figma might seem intimidating, but you can create anything you want in this program. And, it's free to use.
Create logos, design social banners, websites, and more.
No experience is needed, and I'll walk you through every step of the way, with no experience needed.
