A couple of years ago, I was considering going back to school to get a degree in Graphic Design. I was seeing all of these cool designs out there in the world and I said to myself, “I want to do that!”
However, I’d just finished a master’s degree program studying yoga and creativity and it wasn’t really a practical option for me to go back to school again. So I started scouring the web for courses that I could take to learn more about design.
That’s when I became a bit of e-course junkie.
I began taking courses left and right and learned so many of the things that before left me in that mystified, “How did they do that?” state.
If you too are interested in learning more about design, I highly recommend any of the following courses:
Design Basics + Tools
Web Design + Blogging
Surface Pattern Design
- The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design (Rachel Taylor)
There is still so much more I want to learn and the idea of going back to graphic design school is still rolling around in the back of my brain somewhere, but these wonderful courses have got me started. And my desire to learn more hasn’t ended there!
Next up on my design e-course wish list:
- Create Handdrawn Vector (Design Garden)
- The First Steps of Hand-Lettering (Skillshare)
How about you, have you taken any of these courses or any other courses to learn more about design?
