The Skills Spotlight series is a collection of courses that help designers master a specific skill that they can use throughout their career. Too often, we find designers that have an incomplete toolkit. In our experience, we see that many good designers are only missing a few essential skills. This series was developed so that intermediate-level designers could improve their skills where it mattered, not wasting time with general courses. Beginner designers can also use the Skills Spotlight series to build a comprehensive base from beginning, or consider doing a flagship course on a particular theme.
