  • Tips for Efficient Workflows

Work More Efficiently, Acquire More Clients, and Make More Money

This is a comprehensive course that will guide you through all the basic and advanced tools used to design a website from scratch in Photoshop. You'll see the actual design process in action, rather than solely focusing on theory.

What makes this course different is the fact that it goes beyond design to also teach you how to earn a living designing websites. In a few weeks, you can implement strategies to make your workflow more efficient, differentiate yourself from the competition, and earn more money as a web designer.

Contents and Overview

This course is aimed at teaching website designers, including beginners, what it takes to earn more money from fewer projects by working more strategically.

In addition to step-by-step walkthroughs that teach you how to efficiently apply tools in Photoshop to your projects, you'll receive 50+ premium PSD files and other materials to help you further develop your skills.

After mastering how to design websites using Photoshop, you'll also learn how to be a more profitable freelancer. You'll receive tips to help you outsmart other designers and get the best projects. This means you can earn more money on each project and take on fewer clients overall. Strategies like this will help you have a better work-life balance.
