You'll learn to build a simple slide deck like below. In Figma, it's easy to see your slides all at once, navigating your content quickly and in an organized way.
“Nate's teaching style is encouraging and inclusive and not judgmental, which I completely appreciated.”
You don't need to be a designer to confidently present with style. You just need the conviction to make a few choices and adopt a few principles.
You catch yourself staring at a blank canvas in Google Slides or Keynote, unsure of how to make this presentation feel like you.
This video course will show you how to do just that.
Learn the basics of Figma using your own style guide will help you make better design decisions that save you time.
You're only a few hours away from building your new deck.
You're a storyteller who needs to create slide decks to help others see your vision. Maybe you're pitching investors, working with a product or marketing team, or a solopreneur working with clients, like me.
Using Figma not only can help you build slides, but it can help you communicate your ideas to the world.
Each time you sit down to put your vision on digital paper, you're met with new design decisions. But it doesn't need to be this way.
Figma is a design tool used by the best designers in the world, but it's easy to pick up for beginners.
Simply, you love design, but you don't consider yourself a designer.
For the past 16 years, I’ve worked as a brand and product designer for early-stage startups to Fortune 500 companies, like Microsoft, Target, Best Buy, and Sony.
I'm also a self taught designer who has built fundraising decks that have gone on to raise millions of dollars. I have also built mini decks like this course just when I need to tell a story.
The course is for beginners who have never used Figma, or for those who have never used Figma for their slide decks. We build out a mini-deck from scratch using a style guide so you can quickly design a consistent look and feel.
Over the video course, you'll learn the basics of Figma, how to build your own slide deck, and how to personalize it.
Nope! This course is aimed at non-designers who care about design, but don't have a traditional design background.
Please comment directly in the course lesson directly. I'll be able to respond within 48 hours of your question.
Yes, I quit college after my second year—before graduating—and learned to design for the web as an apprentice. Most of my nights were spent drinking Mountain Dew until 2am learning to code and study design.
I was broke, but confident. I even wrote an essay about this time in my life.
We'll be using Figma specifically. No need for any other tools. Download a free account at Figma.com.
Figma is a combination of being accessible in the browser for everyone, a high-fidelity design tool you can use for free, and gives you unique control over your presentations. I love that anything you build for your slides can also be used for your other marketing purposes.
You don't have the time to complete the video course, or you don't want to learn a new software tool. Everyone else, welcome!
You care about design, but have trouble making design decisions. Your personality doesn't reflect your slide decks. You rely on templates too much, because it all feels exhausting. I understand these problems, and I think learning the basics of Figma and building a simple deck will open your eyes to the world of making creative decisions.
*This course is not fully complete. I'll be updating it over the next couple of weeks.
