“I’d always wanted to earn money from my design interest but I had no clue where to start! When I came across The Design Skills Course I knew this was exactly what I had been looking for.

The course is so detailed that any beginner designer will feel supported, but it provides enough in-depth information that any intermediate level individual will feel like you’re learning so much! If you have an eye for design and you’re interested in learning how to make money from these online skills, this course is absolutely perfect for you.

After I finished the course, I signed on a design client a few weeks later and now, I make money from the skills I’ve learned from this course on a daily basis. I highly recommend this course to anybody who wants a all-in-one and one-stop shop design course!” – Gabrielle 

 

“I honestly think the biggest difference between ‘I want to start my own business’ and ‘I have started my own business’ is the useful tools such as the ones in The Design Skills Course.  I’ve always known design things at a surface-level but this just takes you a step further to get stuff done. And I super appreciate how easy and non-overwhelming all of the info is presented. Couldn’t be more thankful for this course!” – Erica

 

“I was looking for a course that would break down graphic design in a simple way so I could start gaining clients and earning an income from anywhere in the world and FAST!

This course has given me the tools I need to feel comfortable and confident starting my own business and owning the services I offer.

I can confidently convince a client why they should hire me over someone else because The Design Skills Course offered everything I needed to know to from foundations of graphic design, the inner-workings of Adobe Creative and designing moodboards, logos, graphics and everything in between…I feel like a design expert bombshell! – Veronica

I am totally starting to feel more confident in my ability to make this dream a reality for myself!” – Dani 

 

“What I loved most about the structure of the Tech Skills Course is the combination of the theory and the practice – everything is so well structured and thought through.

Once you implement the advice and skills taught inside the course, it has an instant effect on your success. Another huge pro: If I struggle when I am working with one of the tools, I can simply log back in to rewatch a video tutorial or create a post in the private Facebook group and get an instant answer by the collective geniuses in the group! Thank you amazing girls!” – Marlene 

 

“I would definitely recommend the Tech Skills Course to any aspiring girl boss! Shay is incredibly thorough and really makes you feel like you can easily complete any of the work with an actual client.

I learned so much in this course and I am much more confident in my tech abilities and know that these will only grow over time thanks to the skills that I learned from Shay in this course.

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

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

We recommend that you have a laptop or desktop computer to complete the lesson activities within the courses. The courses 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 Design Skills Course is specifically for MAC users – although the same principles and concepts can be applied to Powerpoint for PC users.
