Suggestions for Good Visual Design Courses, Books, etc.?
I keep facing the same problem- I can see in my head what I want to design (and feel good about my technical Storyline skills) but I just can't make things look the way I want them to. I follow Tom's blog posts religiously and try to keep a list of websites I like or other things I see out and about. I also always look at the samples in the forums for inspiration. So many of you have brilliant design sensibilities. Even with all of this great input, I've come to the conclusion that some further education in visual design is what I'm after.
Any suggestions for great courses you have taken? I am living abroad as my husband is a diplomat so online is best but I will be back in D.C. in the fall for 8-10 months while he learns Polish. (Learning Visual design has got to be easier!)
Great books you have read would also be appreciated!
