Does this sound familiar?

You know good design when you see it… but you can’t seem to replicate it in your own work.

You feel like design is the one thing holding you back from feeling like a professional in your clients’ eyes (whether that’s actually the case or not).

You cringe every time you give your URL out to somebody and mutter something along the lines of “It needs a bit of prettying up, but…”

Dealing with this stuff is hard. As a freelancer, you wear a lot of hats. Most things you can learn with a bit of research or trial and error, but design is one of those things that doesn’t seem to have any logic to it. It’s either good, or it’s not.

In an ideal world, we wouldn’t have to deal with design at all. People would see our ideas for what they are and they wouldn’t make judgements based on how it looks. Then, when we have enough revenue behind us, we can just hire a kick-ass designer to make it all look polished and professional.

Unfortunately, we’re all painfully aware that that’s not how it works. People have come to expect good design. And we all know we’re more likely to trust a product or company that is well designed.

Well, my friend Laura Elizabeth has been on a mission to teach developers (and really anyone who doesn’t consider themselves a ‘designer’) the fundamentals of design so you can create products that solve a problem AND look great. And she’s agreed to do a free workshop where she goes through a step-by-step process you can use to design something you can be proud of.
