I have a quick question that I hope you can answer, or at least provide me some direction. I would like to take an online course that could teach me some design basics. Not necessarily software, but just tips like how to balance elements on a page, what size fonts to use in relation to each other on a page, how to use white space effectively, etc. Do you know of any such online courses?
- Here is a design basics course from About.com
- Check your local colleges for online courses
- Youtube: Lots of people make videos on everything. I bet there are some great ones out there.
- Check your local library: I was stunned at how many fantastic books were at our main library about software and design. I believe a lot of libraries are also distributing ebooks now.
