What I've learned teaching design and copywriting to over 33,000 students...

...nobody wants to sit through 10 hours of a monotone voice and endless blah blah blah lectures filled with inapplicable material. Learning design should be fun, approachable and actionable. You don't need to wear black rimmed glasses and say fancy things like "the way the finial breaks the baseline on that G is exquisite", to understand and apply design fundamentals. Here's some background on me:
  • $8m dollars raised in my own companies
  • $100m+ raised using my deck designs
  • Employee #10 at Vimeo as Design Director
  • Design at Gumroad, Pentagram, Frog

Chapter 2: Consistency

Section 1: Pattern recognition

Creating a pro looking deck is subtle. People know one when they see one, but can't put their finger on "why". Learn how to use patterns help create that pro look.

Section 2: Color consistency

Section 3: Font size consistency

Using modular font scales will help you create consistent typography that helps the viewer understand the context of each line

Section 4: Grids

Grids help create order out of chaos. Learn how grids can give you frameworks to quickly create legible and organized slide designs.
WHAT'S INSIDE

Chapter 3: Priority

Section 1: Visual Hierarchy

Learn how to use visual hierarchy to arrange each element on the page according to its importance. This helps getting the most vital points across first.

Section 2:  Colors

Using color concepts like brightness, contrast and opacity, you can prioritize elements and make them "pop" or become more subtle reinforcements.

Section 3: Size

Using size can create various levels of importance. In this section you'll learn how to use size effectively in both text and illustrations.

Section 4: Space

White space helps the viewer understand which items are related and which are separate. Learn how to use space to better organize your slide content.
