You are in the right place, if…

You feel creative, and want to try design

You know that you have that keen eye and feel that not everyone has it. You want to find an area where you could unleash your creativity.

You want to change your job to become a designer

Your current job does not satisfy you creatively, financially or does not match your expectations? You can find all you were looking for in a vast field of digital design.

You want to land a job in design

Design is in the top 10 most wanted jobs for 2020 and seems like will continue to be so as the technology evolves. The best idea will be to start investing your time in it today.

Too much information

The web is full of information about design principles but this information is all scattered and unstructured. It’s almost impossible to grasp even the basics without any prior knowledge.

We have gathered only the most important beginner-friendly ingredients of the design principles that are just enough to get you started.

Too many tools

Figma, Adobe XD, Affinity Designer, Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Framer, Invision, Axure, Balsamiq, Keynote... There are so many tools designers use daily that their number may scare you off.

We will focus on just one. Learn the ultimate free tool for any digital designer: Figma. And you will see how easy it is to use.

Online courses didn’t get you far

The only way to learn design is by practicing and getting feedback. Online courses usually do not have such feedback systems in place.

We have picked the bootcamp format so that you receive plenty of feedback from peers and mentors in a safe and friendly environment.

You’ve tried designing yourself, but the results weren’t pretty

It’s not that easy to create something beautiful. You have to know the basics of composition, typography, colors, and so much more. You should also be able to mix all of these components properly.

In this bootcamp we have done a meticulous job of packing the most needed knowledge in the shortest time-frame possible in order to get you to the result that you would consider as pretty.

You feel that you are not creative enough

You look at all these awesome websites, artworks, designs, and say to yourself: “I will never be able to do something like that”.

We are all creative. When we were kids we drew on the walls, created houses from pillows and blankets and imagined ourselves to be space travelers. With this bootcamp we will try to reach out to that kid inside you and let his or her imagination manifest itself in the design space we will create.

Outdated courses are everywhere

You have purchased a design course just to realise that you will have to design a webpage that looks totally 2012. But it’s 2020. Sad story.

User Interface Design is among the fastest-changing industries in the world. You have to be up to date all the time. This bootcamp uses only the latest trends in design while delivering a solid design foundation.

We know the pains you experience when you are just starting…

Hey, but is it possible to learn design in just 7 days?

You won’t become an expert in one week, let’s be honest. However, 7 days are enough to grasp the basic design principles and create your first portfolio project.

Our students made and said this

My journey as UI designer has just begun and this boot camp helped me to think as a designer. Most important of all, I learned the basis of Figma in just seven days.

Federica
Pelati

The experience was successfully intense and well structured. In less than one week, I realized a piece of design fully integrable in my portfolio with the use of a specific software as Figma. I appreciated the full interaction and constructive comments by the tutors and the support given by the other students in the community.

Enzo
Condomitti

Great environment to get true practical experience in UI design along with invaluable constructive real-time feedback from both the lecturers and the diverse community. As a beginner, I definitely gained confidence to move forward and motivation to learn more!

How does it work?

New materials will appear in your account once a day

Every day you will receive a new segment of structured educational content on fundamentals of design in a pre-recorded video format about fundamentals on design.

Creative assignments for each block

After each block you will get a practical assignment based on what you have learnt.

Friendly community to share your progress and get feedback

We have a friendly community where you will be able to publish your assignments and receive feedback from your peers and from our mentors.

Two live webinars

We will have two live webinars during the Bootcamp to share even more tips and insights and answer your questions. What can be cooler than live communication?

Bootcamp curriculum

Day 1: Websites

Like a CCTV camera, we will observe and study what types of websites there are, what sections and components they are made of and check out Figma interface. After that with the help of Figma, we’ll assemble a welcome screen section from predefined elements.

Day 2: Your First Welcome Screen

Here you will start working on your very first Hero section, but before that, we will dive deeper into Figma tools and features. This will help you unlock endless possibilities and release your creativity in digital design.

Day 3: Composition

Composition is the skeleton of your design body. You will learn its rules and how they relate to modern design techniques. In general, you will get to know how to connect all parts of the puzzle together.

Day 4: Typography

We will uncover why using a wrong font can ruin your design all at once. You’ll learn how to choose, mix and tune fonts the right way and how to convey the right story using proper visual hierarchy.

🔴 First live webinar

Day 5: Colors

Working with colors is a whole science in itself. We will demonstrate to you how to hit the target with colors!

🔴 Second live webinar

Day 6: Sections

After we have practiced design basics in the Hero section, we can dig deeper into a multitude of other sections and practice more design techniques there.

Day 7: Presentation

Here we’ll finalize your design efforts into a marvelous design presentation so that you can showcase your very first landing page design to the world.

As a result, you’ll get your first landing page in your portfolio

BONUS: You will get a free set of assets you can use to design your future landing page

Why now is the best time to start designing?

Based on the LinkedIn report, design skills are ranked among the top 10 most required skills of 2020. On average, website designers earn $76k/year in the United States.

Okay... And who will be teaching?

We’re glad you’ve asked. Meet your teachers!

Hi there! Over 10 years, I’ve been working as a UI/UX and Product designer both for growing startups and enterprise corporations. I have the experience of leading a distributed design team of 5 people and have strong HTML/CSS skills. Besides, I’ve created several personal side projects, which provided me with a more in-depth understanding of pain points of business, customer, and development teams. I’m looking forward to see you at the bootcamp!

F.A.Q.

Do I need any prior education in the design area to participate in this Bootcamp?

No, this Bootcamp was specifically created for anyone willing to enter the design field.

Do I need to know how to draw?

No! It's a huge misconception that all designers know how to draw. Most of them don’t, and you don’t have to. If you know how to handle a pencil and draw lines on paper you are good to go.

Will I need to purchase any tools?

Nope. We’ve planned out the whole Bootcamp so that you only need free tools, not even trial versions but completely free tools and assets. You will be able to use them for however long you need after the Bootcamp too.

What happens during the Bootcamp?

Every morning during these 7 days, you will receive a new pack of knowledge in your personal profile with a home task assignment to work on during the day.

Will I have access to materials after the Bootcamp?

Absolutely. For as long as we exist, you will have access to the tools and information we have provided. And we plan to stay for a while. :)

Can I share the art that I create during the course?

Of course, this Bootcamp was created with an idea that you will be able to use the assets from it in your portfolio.

Will I be able to ask questions and receive feedback?

Yes! We encourage you to give feedback to your peers and receive itfrom them . Don’t hesitate to ask questions! We will also be there for you to leave a comment and suggest improvements.

Will I get enough knowledge to land a job?

This is not a Bootcamp that will get you a job, but it's definitely a Bootcamp that will help you take a solid first step to the entry-level positions. Entry-level designers are usually selected by their portfolio, and we will try to create a solid first work in it.

Can I get a refund?

If you're disappointed for whatever reason, you'll get every cent back within two days after the Bootcamp started, no questions asked.

What if my level of English is not good enough or I find it difficult to understand spoken language?

Videos have subtitles, which makes the content easier to understand and lets you check the unknown words in the dictionary if needed.

Can I pay with PayPal?

Sure, just use the link paypal.me/productdesignacademy, make a payment entering the current price of the Bootcamp and drop us a line to support@productdesign.academy and we will provide you with all the necessary access. The "normal" solution will be available for later bootcampers, we promise!
