Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-booooooom-01skillshare-booooooom-02

This is for all you aspiring graphic designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

A couple weeks ago I started trying out different classes so I’d know first hand if any of them were worth sharing with you. After poking around a bit, I can honestly say there really is some great content on the site.

I recommend the logo design class, taught by the talented Aaron Draplin. It’s pretty fast paced (I had to pause it a couple times), and not every keyboard shortcut is explained, but I definitely learned more from watching this series of videos than I did in most of my media classes at University.

There are hundreds of classes and many talented instructors. Jeff Staple teaches a class on branding (I haven’t taken this class yet), and Jessica Hische, who famously designed the Moonrise Kingdom type, teaches another one about lettering. I’m halfway through her class, and I’ve really enjoyed it so far.

If you never went to design school or you just want to brush up on some basics this could be what you’re looking for. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, but if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Or don’t, it’s up to you. I still recommend their site even if you don’t use our link to check it out!

    Yes it’s free but you must enter a credit card number. Always a warning sign when you are asked for this. Looks like a very cool resource though.

    • I’m sure they’re definitely hoping people want to continue using the service but you can easily try out several classes and cancel it if you’re not into it – I wouldn’t endorse it if it wasn’t this way!
