"Trevor breaks down design in a way that makes it tangible for people who aren't designers by trade. He provides easy-to-follow tips and guidance that make it easy for you to begin designing on your own."

"The timing of the 'Not A Designer Design' course was perfect. I was just about to make changes to my websites and promotional material. The material in the course and insight offered by Trevor was beyond useful. I have absolutely NO design experience, however, after implementing some of the course material and advice, I have great looking content and the changes we are making to the site are significantly better. Thank you again for coming up with the material for people like me. Highly recommended."

Let’s do a quick test and prove you are capable of creating beautiful work.
Look at the images below and choose which one looks better:
Clearly it’s the one on the right, and you intuitively knew that. And thus, you have the basic instinct needed to produce nice designs.
But jumping from identifying good design to creating better looking presentations, reports, ads, or websites can feel impossible. You can stare at all of the combinations of fonts and colors and get overwhelmed. You can look at a document layout and just not know how to make it better.
Why is this important?
As you proved with that first test though, people respond to good or bad design. It takes just one tenth of a second for someone to get a first impression of your work.
Imagine having worked on the perfect pitch deck, only to have it quickly being judged as unprofessional or unfinished.
What could that mean if your report, social media post, or ad... is ugly and confusing? What opportunities are lost?
You could hire a designer every time, but that can quickly become really costly, not to mention the slow turn around time if you can’t exactly express your idea.
Sometimes you just want to get the work out.
Making good looking and effective work does not need to be complicated though
The great news is, so much of making things look vastly better comes down to simple steps and concepts anyone can apply.
And this is not about expensive design programs like Photoshop or Illustrator. It’s not about being ‘creative’ or an artist.
It’s about learning a framework to work within, including the right resources, straight forward guidelines, and simple tricks that can be applied anywhere for significantly better designs.
Designs that can be improved within Word or Powerpoint, in an online editor like Canva, or even design programs like Illustrator and Photoshop.
Introducing the Design Bootcamp eCourse
And the framework, resources, and tricks are exactly what you’ll learn in this Design Bootcamp.
You’ll quickly learn a pragmatic and useful way to improve the design of your work without any unnecessary fluff.
You won’t be going through the long history and nuances of fonts, but rather where to find them, which type to use, and how to effectively apply them.
And you’ll find this same expedient but thorough approach as you learn images, colors, and iconography, with practical demonstrations alongside each shown in programs you already know.
You’ll be able to immediately take these teachings and apply them to your work.
After taking this course, you’ll have the confidence to approach anything you’re working on and make it look better and be more effective.
How great would it be to know your audience has a positive and professional first impression, and that your message is being understood.
All without the need for a designer or expensive design programs.
If you’re ready to effectively build your knowledge and confidence so that you yourself can create great looking work with impact, then I welcome you to join the Design Bootcamp course.
I've been a professional designer for 15 years, including being part of 3 successfully sold start ups. I've had the fortune to have worked on a wide range of projects with a number of great teams, and want to put together useful content to show other professionals that design is not just for designers.
