Design visualisation workshops

For design professionals.

Small groups & personal coaching

We believe in a hands-on approach. In our sketch training you will apply sketching in a design driven context. Sketching cannot be learned from books or video's alone. Exercise and personal feedback are more effective, and will prevent you bfrom 'being stuck'.

Because everyone has their own learning curve.

4 session training
This is the core of our courses. 4 (weeky) lessons offer a solid learning curve, the possibility to practice the newly acquired skills the week following the session, and the opportunity to get weekly feedback on your studies.
