After she said that, some pieces started coming together in my head. I enjoy helping people learn.
The things that I learned on my own aren't just for me; I have lots of little nuggets (and bigger ones too!) to share and I should be glad to share them.
Over the past few weeks, I've been debating what I should do with this information. At first, it was to get rid of my blog and post tutorials on a dedicated web page. ...But I do like sharing some tidbits that are too long for social media on the blog instead.
But then, there was this idea:
I want to revamp my current tutorials into videos with PDF worksheets + assignments and make them into mini-classes instead...AND I want to give these away for free only to subscribers of my design letters. They will only be available once, with a link within an email, so they won't be able to be accessed if you subscribe later. There will be quite valuable with a lot more information + content, so I will be offering them at a low price for non/late-subscribers as well.
I also want to develop full-sized classes for those who want to start from scratch and learn from a series of videos. These classes will use my own experience of surface design and illustration to coach you through creating designs that art directors go for. For these, there will be a discount exclusively for design letter subscribers, too.
My ideas will be fleshed out later, but I really want to encourage you to sign up because you'll be getting tons of free content besides the classes and they will aid you in your quest to become a better designer in the ways that count.
If anyone has any feedback, I'd love to hear in the comments below!
Any ideas for things you'd like to learn about the surface design world that you can't find and are curious about?
