Will there be any assigned homework?


Each video lesson is paired with optional homework assignments. We’ll provide homework, design challenges, interactive motion assignments, and a full library of realistic client projects to help you improve your design skills.

What does the personal Mentorship include?


We treat Mentorship students as if they were designers working in our studio. Their progress is closely monitored, have on-demand access to the instructors to ask questions, and each of their designs are carefully reviewed to provide insightful feedback.


Mentorship students can request video feedback on any design. There are no limits to the amount of feedback sessions that they can request.


Feedback is limited to six months after submitting the first homework or design for critique. The course’s videos, content, homework, and downloadable files will still be available after the Mentorship period is over.


Can you share my designs to Instagram?


Yes! We love promoting our student’s work on our Instagram accounts. Please submit your logo designs here. We recommend sharing 2-3 images of the logo design that could include mockups, photography, grids, or a behind-the-scenes post.
