Design Fundamentals is a brilliant course by Laura Elizabeth that includes 30 video lessons, downloads, case studies, and even feedback from Laura herself. The goal of the course is to give you a solid design foundation no matter what design abilities you currently have. Each module and lesson is filled with easy-to-follow “secrets” that can start improving your designs immediately.

The modules include:

  • Planning
  • Layout
  • Typography
  • Color
  • Imagery
  • Polish

People often mistakenly believe that you have to be a “creative” or have “artistic talent” to design beautiful websites— but once you have the design fundamentals in place you’ll start to see how design works and how you can apply these fundamentals to your projects for instant improvement.

Why We Love Design Fundamentals

No matter if you consider “design” your weak point, or if you’ve been designing for years— this course will step up your game. I gained so much insight from this course that have helped me stop staring at a blank screen, gain consistency, and better understand the use of color & typography. It’s a great workflow for all your UI problems!

This “no-fluff” course includes 30 video lessons (that are regularly updated). Better than “giving a man a fish” Laura takes the time to help you break down some of the confusion people have over design and give you easy workflows and systems that will greatly help improve your designs right off the bat.

The 6 modules in the course cover: Planning, Layout, Typography, Color, Imagery, & Polish.

I’ve been designing for a lonnnnnnnnnnnng time, and I’ve been really picky about endorsing a design product (because I think so many are worthless) but I have no issue recommending anyone and everyone to Design Academy.
