This 4-week program is a fundamental design course structured for individuals from various backgrounds, and no prior design experience is required. You will be taken through a step-by-step process of creating designs applicable for web, marketing campaigns, print designs, and more. Participants should come prepared to experiment and implement designs using their newly learned skills.
