Introducing DesignBits, design courses delivered to your email inbox.
Many people want to learn design, be them programmers, copywriters, businesspeople, marketers, or even designers themselves who want to polish their design skills, but the problem is they don’t have the time to engage in a full-fledged design course, nor read books in their free time. We want to solve this problem by delivering snack-sized design lessons straight to their email inbox, in a specific period of time.
This is a paid lesson, so that I can focus on the quality, and will be in the format of emails, sent 8 times every week over the course of 8 weeks for every course. That’s about 8 week’s of weekend learning. Each email will be a concise length, complete with pictures and links to outside resources if any.
Ready to take the next step? Here is the course I am offering right now.
USD99.00 for 8 weekly emails
