Meet Your Guide
When I got into web design and graphic design, my designs were…well…to say the least…not good. I’ve always had a creative eye in some areas but because I didn’t understand the basic principles of design that are laid out in this course, my designs suffered and my early projects were not pretty and didn’t convert well for my clients. It’s amazing I landed any clients back in those early days 🙂
Using all the methods laid out in this course, I’ve managed to develop a sleek eye for design and become more valuable (and earn significantly more over the years) because my designs are now professional, engaging and more importantly, have converted well for my clients.
I’ve also taken that knowledge into every aspect of designs you see here for my tutorials, podcast, course pages and more. All the elements of design that I teach in this course have translated to EVERY aspect of my businesses and they will for you too!
P.S. Good design is the difference between a customer buying from you or moving on so you owe it to yourself and your clients to level up your design chops right now! – Josh
Real World Examples
I’ll show you the methods, strategies and tactics that me and my team have used to take several real websites…
From this to this
And this to this
Whew, even this to this
Do I have access to the full course when purchased?
Does the course content overlap with any other courses?
I am including a simplified version of my Website Strategy Questionnaire that I feature in my Business Course but it’s focused on the design side of things for this course and not SEO, Google Webmaster stuff, etc 🙂 That’s all reserved for the business course.
Do I have lifetime access to the course?
Will the course be added on to?
Are there tests or quizzes?
Heck no. No quizzes, tests or any sort of academic feeling with this course. It’s really more of a training guide. If you’re like me, you hate tests and had enough of those in school ?
What format is the course in?
Each lesson will be in video walk-through format (like my tutorials) and accompanied by written posts. Vimeo does not support automatic captions or subtitles so those are not available which is one reason I accompany each video with written posts that cover what’s in the videos. Disclaimer: any teaser videos of the course footage on YouTube may display captions but that’s YouTube specific, again no captions or subtitles are available on the course videos currently.
Will the course ever close or expire?
