What do the courses include?

You can waste a lot of time tracking down design templates and video tutorials scattered around the web. DesignBoost provides not only pixel-perfect design templates, but also valuable training on how to use the templates and create the look you want for your website or application.

What do the courses include?

Photoshop Design Templates

Every course includes pre-designed, pixel-perfect Photoshop templates that jump-start the design process for your app, landing page or website. They are designed to ensure a quality layout and final product design.

Step-by-step Assignments

The only way to guarantee you leave each course with a finished product in hand by giving you the right tools. Every course includes lesson assignments that require students to apply what they’ve learned directly to their design.

Video Training

The design templates and worksheets provide the means for creating your design, and the video training teaches students how to manipulate the templates and gain a better understanding of design fundamentals.

You don’t have to be a Photoshop guru to create great designs.

All you need to take DesignBoost courses is beginner-level Photoshop skills. DesignBoost’s learn-by-doing teaching philosophy enables students to quickly acquire and refine Photoshop skills. DesignBoost founder Jen Gordon observes that “by teaching students how to design real products, they are able to laser focus on their website or app idea. Learning Photoshop becomes a by-product of this process.” Look at some of the cool products DesignBoost students have created:

Treed by Cara Oba

Cara Oba, designer

Treed! Goal Mapping

“Our early prototypes of Treed used the DesignBoost icons heavily.  Also, we continue to use the PSD mockup tools to flush out new ideas and designs.  Currently, we’re using the “How to Make Your First iPhone App” PDF to hone our marketing, as well as plan our next app.”

IP Voiding Diary by Eric Prive

IP Voiding Diary

“DesignBoost made me even more aware that design in apps is crucial. Too many medical apps have a lousy design and with the high quality training and insights we got from DesignBoost we created our iP Voiding Diary.”

Tac Leung, developer


“I have designed, product managed and launched over 10 apps for clients using your design templates. I particulalry like how you give well executed ideas of how to skin applications so they look different than the standard iOS interface while retaining a sense of polish and sophistication.”
