Be The First To Know When They Launch
Ace Design Interviews Like You Are Hired
Design interviews are not scary, but you need to know how to prepare. There are patterns and formulas to how interviewers conduct meetings with potential candidates. We break them all down and coach you how to ace these interviews so confidently as if you are already hired.
Self Fund Your Creative Startups
Not every business needs venture capital. In fact, many world-famous and successful businesses were self-funded and remain so. We want creatives to know the secrets to self-fund their businesses, become profitable and grow steadily. We want to teach creatives how to establish profitability rather than borrowing money for unproven business models.
From Employee to Self-Employed: Design Edition
When you prepare to leave your employment and transition to being an independent creative working for yourself, it can be scary. But it doesn't have to be, if you equip yourself with knowledge and proper planning. We are teaching you how to plan step by step for your transition so that you can leave your employment with confidence.
Effective Networking for Creatives
You can't keep applying to jobs and do nothing else. You need to network (the hell out of it). You also can't magically find clients without building relationships first. We teach you how to build that relationships effectively, even in the virtual world that we live in now.
The Art of Client Management
Bad clients? Clients don't pay? No one in design school has taught us how to handle them. Now we are here to change that. The art of client management is a soft skill that must be learned by all creatives. We pack this course with lots of actionable tips and mini-case studies to help you get better at client management.
Incorporation, Taxes and Insurance for Creatives
Scared of finances? You can't if you want to be running a successful creative business. Sadly, no one teaches you how to handle your money and all the "non-creative stuff" at school. We are here to change that. We teach you exactly what you need to know in order to take care of your business and make sure you are profitable.
Build An Outstanding Portfolio Website in 1 Day
Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to learn how to code to build your own fully-customized website. Designers need websites that don't look like anybody else's and we are teaching you how to do that in as little as one day. We will cover page building techniques in the World's most popular content management systems such as WordPress and Webflow.
Pricing Your Design Services Right
Not all creatives are taught about managing finances. How much can you charge for your creativity? How do you attract clients while not undervaluing your work? We teach you how to confidently price your service at what it's worth - not what others are charging.
Stand Out From The Crowd With Personal Branding
In addition to non-cookie cutter portfolio projects, you need to a strong personal brand that stands out. We teach you how to craft an outstanding personal brand (hint: it's not just designing your business cards) so that everyone remembers you when they look at your web presence.
Create Non-Cookie Cutter Portfolio Projects
Most online bootcamp graduates suffer from cookie-cutter portfolio project syndromes. They can't stand out from the crowd because their portfolios look awfully similar to that other person who also took the course. We are here to change that. We guide you to build unique portfolio projects that no one else has and push you to outgrow your creative limits.
