Are you wondering if your design skills are good enough?

Do you feel like you're faking it til you make it?

Are you undercharging because you didn't get a design degree?

Do you feel like an imposter in the biz?

Are you exhausted from wearing too many hats?

Becoming a Better Designer will be your secret weapon to radically changing the future of your design career. Over a six week period, you’ll master key skills typically learned in a design degree program - and have fun along the way!

Instead of spending thousands of dollars and years in large classroom-style education, you'll get the skills of a formal design degree through small-group training.

If you’ve answered yes to any of these, it's time to increase your design skills, confidence, and prices!

The community aspect (group chat and live sessions) was a big selling point for me and was the deciding factor for when I decided to sign up. I think both are such an invaluable addition and knew it would help push me to the next level. I knew getting feedback, especially from other designers, was so important.

I absolutely love your teaching style. It is so personable and I feel like Jamie really cared about the course and the people in it. This wasn't just a money grab and I appreciated that. She brought real value without making us feel restricted.

— Tati | 2020 Course Student




This course gave me the push I needed to put a big project in motion. It helped me bring new skills to the table. It has also been very helpful in my job working with social media marketing. Becoming a Better Designer is a crash course in design basics and best practices to help get you on the right track in your design career!

— Mikaela | 2020 Course Student




Jamie is a great teacher and makes sure you are mastering your skills as you find your own personal style. I fell in love with all things design and now have a job as a full-time graphic designer. Her advice and encouragement changed my life. I don’t think I would have continued to pursue graphic design if it wasn’t for her teaching.

Absolutely! The modules are designed to cover subjects that will help you go from good to great. Plus, we’ll go beyond design elements with topics like business, ownership, and growing a portfolio.

Do I need Adobe programs or any other software to participate?

Great question! You can complete the course without the software, but will get the most value out of the Adobe Module if you can practice in the programs. If you don’t have the programs there are two options: watch and keep notes for when you do, or download a free seven-day trial during that week of the course.

How long will I have access to the course content?

How does forever sound? Course students not only get unlimited access to the course content but will get any course updates and additions that come out in the future!

What if I don’t live in the U.S.?

No problem! You’ll be able to access the modules on your own time. The weekly live sessions will be scheduled in a U.S. timezone but can be accessed later if they aren’t convenient for you.
