Learn Graphic Design Faster

Hi, my name is Ruben. I’m a digital media professor, graphic designer, and web developer. I’ve helped hundreds of students learn graphic design faster and more effectively.

I’ve taken all that I’ve learned in the classroom during the past 8 years and developed a system for teaching the fundamentals of graphic design in a way that makes sense and is sustainable. I’ve been compiling materials, lessons, articles, resources, and methods for helping my students learn faster and more efficiently. 

My objective is to make graphic design and web development understandable to beginners, and to help you acquire a solid base to help you succeed in your graphic design journey.

My Journey

Ten years ago, I started learning web development and graphic design on my own. As a new professor faced with the need to update my theoretical background to find a job, I became obsessed with graphic design and web development.

Today, I teach graphic design at the college level, co-designed a platform that won a prestigious entrepreneurship award, develop websites for fun and profit, and simply enjoy designing for myself and the communities I’m involved with.

This website is a resource for my future students and anyone who wants to learn digital graphic design.

I hope you find it helpful.
