Learning Values

We believe there's a formula to learn and retain your design skills.

Determination to complete a creative task, project or goal.

Willingness to try over and over to gain competence and confidence

Understanding that creating multiple versions of a design can lead to discovery, deeper thinking and diversity of solutions.

Attempting to reconstruct a successful existing design, not to copy someone else’s work, but to understand how elements work together to create good design

Creative cues all around us can incite ideas, excitement and the desire to create.

Now let's work!

You can learn anything. But you also need to use these six "P's of Learning"...

Design is visual problem-solving. Combine your creativity with critical thinking

Planning

Understanding the requirements of your design and then planning accordingly will set you up for success

Patience

This is essential! Have patience with the process, but more importantly with yourself when learning and implementing new concepts

Perseverance

Design isn't always easy—but staying the course will help you work through challenges and level-up in your understanding
