I’m excited to announce that Digital Hart Studios is now Design Procademy, a growing design education network. Below are some FAQs about the transition and the new features that are in the works to help you grow as a designer.
Why the name change?
Digital Hart Studios still exists, but as the underlying company behind Design Procademy. Over the past year, I’ve been working on new ideas to help grow the Design Like a Pro community that began on Youtube in 2009. I’ve developed a new system that integrates the free and short tutorials on Youtube with a larger course workflow that will give designers even more resources. I’ve heard from many designers who need assistance building their skills and their portfolios as well as get advice to grow their businesses. Design Procademy is the design education network that focuses on graphic design skills and creative business growth. The name more aligns with this mission and allows for further growth along the way.
What will happen to Design Like a Pro?
No worries designer friends, Design Like a Pro isn’t going anywhere. I have plans to integrate it as the FREE section of Design Procademy and it will continue to feature free tips and tutorials in Photoshop and InDesign as well as the popular What’s Your Take series where I share my take on a topic in the design world and ask for your take in return.
What new things can I expect from Design Procademy?
I’m super excited to announce the what’s in the works at Design Procademy. Check a few out below:
- Robust multi-week and single courses to improve your design skills
- One-on-one Live Sessions
- Group chats
- And my most favorite, project critiques
There are many opportunities to learn design online, but very few out there integrate you with the instructor for honest feedback that will help you improve over time. My goal is to provide as many resources and feedback as possible so that everyone can become a better designer. It does’t matter if you are a design student or just starting out post graduation. There is something you can learn here at Design Procademy.
Any new courses I should know about?
Yes! Check out the Design Grad Crash Course launching soon. This course is designed specifically for post grad designers or designers looking to kickstart their careers. This 3 week course will cover ways to develop your brand and resume, create portfolio builder projects, polish that portfolio and secure jobs and new clients. This is everything you wish you learned in school! Check it out and join the list to be the first to know when the course launches.
I want to thank you so much for your support of Design Procademy and I look forward to launching new content that will continue to inspire you to learn, improve and grow as a designer.
