Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone who wants to learn about App Design, regardless of previous experience. In fact, the course is perfect for complete beginners with zero experience. You are passionate about technology, but lack the necessary skillsets to achieve your goals.  You might have tried to learn how to code, but let's face it, you're not a code monkey. You're a creative individual who performs best when you're working with visuals. If you think designing is complicated, I’m here to tell you that it’s really not that hard. Unlike coding, this is extremely fun and visual. As a designer, you're able to communicate your ideas to friends, family, future employees, engineers, and even potential investors. You're able to get whatever is in your head, down onto the screen to turn all of your concepts into reality.
