Course introduction

In this course you'll build a toolkit of simple tools to help you explore ideas that you'll be able to revisit and adapt throughout the design process.

There’s a temptation to go straight to the computer, but the research and ideation phases of design will be crucial to your success. So we'll start with the basics: pen and paper.  This course is NOT about being an amazing artist  – we’re talking about IDEAS! 💡

We’ll also work to develop visual and graphic design skills which can help you communicate your ideas. This way, the audience can focus on your strong content rather than the bad typography. These skills can be adapted to any future project, from a résumé to the look of a mobile app.

Finally, we’ll examine how to put together ideas and use storytelling to capture the attention of your audience through an effective, engaging, and fun presentation. Your ideas will become more powerful if you learn how to share them.

All of these skills will be used in future courses, as well as throughout the design process. Learning to use and integrate these tools will make you stand out from the competition and make sure you get your ideas heard!

Now it’s time to explore and have some fun. This is not a traditional classroom. Don’t be afraid to explore, experiment, and play!
