The course is broken down into weekly sections. Each section contains seven lessons. These have two sections, first comes the one minute tutorial to teach you a new creative skill. This leads into a commentary style video which provides further insight into the topic.
Many of these tutorials are accompanied by a downloadable working file created directly by one of the instructors. You can use this to see how they have set up the document and created the work you see produced in the one-minute tutorials. You can also directly work in these files as much as you like.
Finally, check out the creative assignments, we have set 12 challenges. That’s one for every chapter (or month.)

Meaning you can test your knowledge and produce brand new creative work, perfect if you are looking to build a varied portfolio.

As well as technical skills you will also learn essential pieces of design theory and see them applied in the context of a project. These work hand in hand with learning practical skills and will ensure you create work that successfully communicates to an audience.
Towards the end of the project, we introduce more practical skills which come in handy for creative professionals like the best methods for getting inspired, carrying out research, combining colours and more!
