Above: A page spread from one of my visual journals. During my By Design Class I address not only the component parts of a page, but the rationale behind making design decisions to create impact and organize your text and illustrations. Click on the image to view an enlargement.
Since the beginning of September 2016 my By Design: Creating the Intentional Page Class has been open. You can sign up any time—it's a self-guided class.
You'll get lifetime access to over 7 hours of video lessons and classroom discussions. (See the FAQ for additional information.)
While this is a self-guided class I made a commitment to students to be in class answering questions every Friday through the first three months of offering the class (until November 30).
You still have time to sign up for this teacher-interactive version of the class. For the next 3 weeks I'll be checking in pretty much daily. (Who are we kidding? We all knew I couldn't stick to the Friday only check in).
After November 30 you can still sign up for this self-guided class, but it will be exactly that—self-guided. I'll check in a couple times a month to answer students questions, but I will not be giving the in-depth feedback and commentary I'm giving to students and their posted work during this introductory phase.
If you've been design curious and want to take your sketchbook pages to the next level now is the time to sign up for this economically priced class. (Note: the price of the class will NOT be discounted after November 30. Students registering now are receiving bonus interaction that a self-guided class doesn't bring.)
You can go to this post to see a short video about the class. (Please note that students have lifetime access to the classroom, not one year, as stated in the video.)
Students describe the class as "awesome, jammed pack." Once you register you'll be able to see what they mean by looking at past posts and extended discussions. Come and join the fun.
