The same professional training, now online.

Our live, instructor-led, virtual classes are capped at 20 students to guarantee the same level of personal attention you’d get in a traditional lecture room, with the same accountability for attendance and participation. This, combined with the convenience and accessibility of online training makes for a powerful and unique learning experience that offers the best of both worlds.

Interactive and personal.
Forget pre-recorded classes and one-size-fits-all assignments – our virtual classrooms combine the best of remote learning with live lectures and an interactive group of peers for a unique learning experience, every time.

Gone are the days when designers could hide in a corner and avoid writing work altogether. Digital designers, in particular, are increasingly being called on to get involved in every aspect of the creative workflow. As a result, understanding how to write proficiently within a design environment has become an essential skill and a great service differentiator.

In this course, you’ll learn to release your inner wordsmith while leveraging your UX/UI environments to communicate clearly, purposefully and with maximum impact. This streamlined workflow not only gives you complete control over your creative message, it also reduces conflicts at later project stages.

By learning to prepare, compose and edit your own copy, you can become the kind of multi-skilled professional the design industry is desperate for. Write for design, write for success!

In this course you will learn the following skills:

Preparation | Articulate Requirements | Gather inputs | Generate ideas

Composition | ACB Lenses | The Rough-In | Writing with speed

Editing | Version Control | Editing Lenses | Self-Editing Techniques

Finishing | Future Systems | Copy Approval | Finish Work

Facts, Figures and FAQ.
