Why this Class is Different

The Entire Process, Narrated.

Seeing someone create a layout in a timelapse is fun, but understanding why certain elements, styles and scales were chosen is even better.


No layouts were prepared in advance of their recordings; you witness the entire process in the most genuine way, from start to finish. Every design consideration is narrated along the way so you know the 'why's' while also witnessing the 'how's'.

With bonuses to help your process along, you'll have everything you need to dissect successful layouts and apply everything you learn into your own work in a logical, meaningful way. No matter how far along you are in your layout journey, you can take things as simple or as complex as you'd like.
