What it’s all about

The Morgan Web Design Academy is built around the idea that you do not need a college degree in order to be successful. Structured around the WordPress platform and the Themify Ultra theme, we will first take a journey through some key concepts, then build this web school from sratch, and then finally go through the process of marketing it in order to give a full comprehensive picture of what it means to be a designer.

You can read more about my story and why I chose to start Morgan Web Design and eventually this school here, but ultimately I am simply a firm believer in working for yourself. Life is so much more than just a 9-5 and I also just personally enjoy the hustle. Because of this I want to pull back the veil on not just how to create websites  but dive into all the other intricacies that are involved in becoming a designer and working for yourself in a relatively laid back matter for those who may be interested. 

The difference in this course from so many others is that it should be treated as more of an informational resource than an outlined set of scholastic courses.  By the end of these courses you should be able go from knowing absolutely nothing about web design to being able to competently design websites and market them for potential clients.This school focuses on relevant practical information, taking a turn from technical discussion and highlighting on what is actually needed to work as a freelance designer in the real world. Because this some of the classes may be structured differently than you are used to. Some classes may have videos some may have written sections, and some may have both. It just depends on the content and what I feel is the best way to deliver it. Additionally, each class has a comment section for discussion and there is also a discussion form to talk about topics with other users and request additional courses. Finally, once you become a member of the school you will get access to all the content that is on the site as well as any that I will every create.

I hope everyone who joins this school finds the information useful and hopefully through its creation more people can have the opportunity work for themselves and find passion in what they do. 

Happy Learning!
