Learn to create beautiful, modern websites!

Self-paced video courses for web design newcomers, small business owners, and other creative rabble-rousers.


“After having a bad experience with a web designer I got lucky and found Geoff’s videos. They’re so well done — simple, clear, not too fast, not too slow. After watching them I fired my web designer and got hard at work on my own projects, saving tons of money. I can’t say enough good things about Geoff and his courses!”

You won’t for much longer.

“It’s because of Geoff that I have a 3pm appointment today with my first client. It’s because of Geoff that I can now call myself a web designer and can get paid for it. I feel more passionate about Geoff and his teaching than I do about my university, which I spent A LOT more money on. His courses are packed full of knowledge that I can put to use right away. Thanks Geoff!”


Let a friend show you how

Hey, I’m Geoff. I help graphic designers, small business owners, and creative people just like you learn about web design, develop valuable, in-demand skills, launch online businesses and creative projects…and yeah, make more money! You can learn more about me here.

Learning how to build websites is no different than figuring out perspective drawing, how to weave literary prose, or how to combine chords to make beautiful music. It’s like cooking or woodworking or learning how to fix your car…But for whatever reason, web design’s made out to be highly technical and overly complicated. Let’s change that.

How can I help you?

Dig into graphics and web design

Get clear on how it all works.

Does web design need to be so complicated? After all, when you boil it all down, there are only a few key components. Web design’s not hard, you just need some clarity. I’d love to show you how it works, and let you see how all the pieces fit together.

Build a website to showcase your creativity

Design beautiful, functional websites.

It’s simply a matter of getting decent at a new set of skills—maybe even great. You’ll wanna be able to pull off side-projects, maybe do some freelancing, or even get good enough to fire your web designer and do it all yourself. I’d like to help you with that.

Learn online marketing and e-commerce

Gain skills and make more money.

The skills are in demand. And Learning web design dovetails alongside your existing skills perfectly. Want to become more valuable and marketable? Want to take on some side-work? Want to build your online business? I’d love to show you how.

So whatcha waitin’ for?!

“Your videos supercharged my ability to customize WordPress for my clients who are extremely happy with the results. In fact, I am now turning down client requests because my work is in huge demand, all as a result of watching your videos which made it so easy to learn what I needed to know to take my clients’ sites — and therefore my business — to the next level of success.”
