Anyone know of a good basic 2016 design course?

Do any designers using Bubble have any suggestions for online design courses?

Thanks in advance.

What part of design do you want to study?

@skylershelton
General best practices in web and mobile UI/UX. I think it’s safe to say I’m no professional in this sector; if would like to give a quick breakdown I’d be happy to hear it.

I’ve heard great things about http://trydesignlab.com/ - they pair you up with mentors who work in UI/UX for major brands.

I would suggest just visiting sites/apps similar to what you have in mind and using their design structures as starting points. Then you can modify based off your own experimentation.

The other part I would suggest is finding a design program you like - I use ArtBoard on mac and just playing around with it on things that interest you. From drawing a logo to doodling anything you like so you become comfortable with what you think is good design.

Last look at designs - I’m always looking at the smallest component usually icons that go into the interface. The noun project is a great resource (thenounproject.com) it’s like a visual dictionary for concepts that bring back icon ideas.

I subscribe to a material school of thought: https://design.google.com/resources/

That should be plenty to get started with!
