A few common questions! Click the plus sign next to the question to reveal the answer.

What if I've never taken a graphic design class before?

Perfect! This course is for you – specifically aspiring and beginner graphic designers. You’ll learn everything from the very basics of graphic design (color, typography, layout) and the ins & outs of the Adobe Creative Suite (even if you’ve never opened a design program before).

We’ll start with the basics before diving into more advanced techniques later in the course.

Do I have to complete the course within a certain amount of time?

Nope! We know you’re probably busy juggling work, school, working out and a serious social life. That’s why you get full immediate access to the entire course so you can take it at your own pace.

How long do I have access to the course?

How does forever sound? You’ll have lifetime access to the course materials, which will continuously be updated with any new strategies, videos and course materials in the future.

Do you offer any refunds or guarantees?

Yes girl! We offer a 15-day money back guarantee. To be eligible for a full refund, we’ll require you to email us and show us the work you’ve put in the course.

We do this because we’re looking for serious and committed students only. We take our learning environment seriously and maintain a very high standard of positivity, encouragement, and inspired, action-oriented learning.

Do I need to have the Adobe Creative Cloud to take this course?

Yep! After enrolling in the course, you will need to have access to the following 3 programs: Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. These programs are available through a monthly subscription of Adobe Creative Cloud (approximately $49/month) and will be essential to your toolbox as a graphic designer!

If you happen to be a student (of have a family member who’s a student), Adobe CC offers a student discount, so be sure to take advantage of that!

What format is the course content delivered in?

Good question! The course materials are shared as video lessons and step-by-step video tutorials. You’ll also receive worksheets, checklists, done for ya templates and more.

This isn’t your boring ole’ university class – our goal is to provide an interactive, fun and inspiring learning environment for ya!

If I want to enroll in all of the BB Courses, which should I start taking first?

Great question! We recommend that you complete the Tech and/or the Design Skills Courses first then the Work & Travel Course! The Skills Courses teach you all the online skills that you’ll be selling as services.

Once you have the online skills, The WTC will teach you how to take those online skills and build a successful online business! The WTC will walk you through everything from: how to find & land clients, how to define your hourly rate, build your solopreneur website, packaging your skills as services and so much more!

All our courses are self paced too, so you can take your time learning the skills before diving into the WTC!

How long does it take to complete the course?

The course, on average, can be completed within 2 weeks. Although we’ve had students complete the course in as little as 3 days up to as long as 30 days depending on how many hours each week you have to commit to taking the course.

What type of computer do I need to have to complete the course?

We recommend that you have a laptop or desktop computer to complete the lesson activities within the course. The course can be accessed via any device (phone, tablet, netbook), but to be able to implement the lesson homework, and specifically the Adobe Creative Suite, you will need a laptop or desktop computer.

We personally recommend a MacBook Pro because we have them and love them. Please note, the Keynote tutorial inside the course is specifically for MAC users – although the same principles and concepts can be applied to Powerpoint for PC users.


Once you complete The Design Skills Course, it’s time to seal the deal, take our short evaluation quiz and get your hands of that hard-earned completion certificate to use on your resume, website etc.!


Access to our Private Community 

It’s super important that you have a solid support system of like-minded Girl Bosses to cheer you on, report your progress and share your goals!

You’ll get access to our exclusive online community to connect with past and current students around the world, share advice, tips, tricks, tools and more as you grow in your business and check off that Bucket List!

Because we love ya (and we’re pumped about your girl boss success!), you’ll also get access to tons of done-for-you templates, guides and checklists!

Mini Projects

The magic of The Design Skills Course is in the fun mini projects! Not only will you learn amazing new skills, you’ll also be creating projects to start filling your design portfolio.


Think about where you want to be six months from now or even ONE month from now. Do you have a plan? Do you have the skills to get you there? If you don’t have a strategic plan to achieve your goals, then you can’t reasonably expect to achieve them.

So, you can keep puttering along with no plan, hoping for the best and that something in your life will change, or you can use the step-by-step process we teach in The Design Skills Course to help you learn all the design skills you need to achieve your globetrotting girl boss dreams faster than you even thought possible.
