Since the day The Starter League opened their doors, people from all over the world have traveled to Chicago to learn how to program web apps.

It didn’t take long before design-focused classes made their way into the curriculum. In Carolyn’s class, people learn how to research and shape great user experiences. Shay’s class takes those experiences and turns them into something tangible for the web. Now we’re thinking there’s room for even more. Today, we’re excited to announce the next addition to the growing list of design offerings at The Starter League.

Introducing the Visual Design course at Starter League

In ten intensive weeks, we’re looking to turn students from design enthusiasts into design practitioners. You’ll get your hands dirty finessing the look and feel of web apps, while working your salesmanship skills to put together helpful, clear, and beautiful marketing sites. You’ll study taste rather than trends. You’ll become immersed in the foundations of classic typography and apply them to the web. You’ll learn to balance aesthetics with usefulness. You’ll draw from your own opinions and point of views to let your designs evoke emotion and meaning.

And, you’ll have me as your instructor through every step of the way. I’m happy to join the already-fantastic Starter League teaching crew in offering this class.

If you think you belong in this class, you should apply today.
