“I know good design when I see it. I start every project thinking ‘this is going to look so slick & awesome’… and the results are just completely underwhelming”
Maybe you can see the difference between good design and bad but you have no idea how to replicate it. Or maybe you think design is only meant for those elusive ‘creative types’—something you’re not.
If that sounds like you, I want you to know…
I know how it feels to have these struggles with design.
I know the frustration of just not being able to make something look half decent. I battled with this for many years, throughout my degree and working in an agency.
I felt like I was just missing some quality. And when I asked for help, I got nothing but vague “you just have to feel it” answers.
I almost gave up.
But I’m so glad I didn’t because it wasn’t until after that moment I realised design isn’t something you can either do or you can’t. If you know a few basic principles (and a few tricks that many designers don’t want to admit to) you can make anything look pretty darn great.
With a solid grasp of design you won’t have to worry when a client comes to you to design and implement a new feature. If you have an idea for a side project, you’ll be able to design, code and ship it without having to pay anyone to make it look good.
You can have a great looking website or app without having to rely on Bootstrap or spend days scouring Dribbble taking your focus away from the important stuff.
With Design Academy, I’m working really hard to provide a systematic approach to design that you can follow to achieve a solid, user-friendly design every time.
