Here at Designlab our most popular course is Design 101. It's a 4-week introduction to design fundamentals, with a focus on the skills needed to create high-quality mobile interfaces and web layouts.
Each month we're blown away by how far our students come in just a few weeks. Given that the average student enters the course with little or no experience of graphic design software, and no prior exposure to the design process, we love seeing their progress.
In this post we've collected some recent examples of excellent coursework that students achieved through applying their new skills and working closely with an expert designer as their mentor – enjoy!
Want to try your hand at design? Designlab is a collaborative learning platform that pairs you with a professional designer as your mentor. You work through the curriculum, uploading projects as you go; your mentor then leaves feedback through online comments and 1-on-1 video calls, allowing you to iterate on each submission and improve your work.
