Why trust me? What makes me any better than the thousands of coding instructors out there?
My name is Brad Hussey, and I've been working professionally as a designer and developer for over 6 years. I studied design & development in college for 2 years before getting hired as an in-house web developer at a local web development firm. Only a year into full-time employment, I quit to start my own freelance business from home, which has been the best career move I've ever made because it allows me the freedom to work on my own terms on projects I love to be a part of, and it pays extremely well.
What makes me different than all the other coding instructors out there is that I know how to communicate complex & boring concepts without putting you to sleep! While you're staring at a screen with hundreds of lines of code, I like to keep things light, crack jokes and keep you entertained. My approach is simple, hands-on, and relaxed. Think of me as your handsome friend who just so happens to be a passionate computer geek under the surface.
Don't take it from me, read what some of my students have said about my courses:
"Instantly, I felt comfortable with Brad's style and approach. After only a week of finishing this course, I have 3 projects for freelance website design. I couldn't thank Brad enough!" — a graduate of Bootstrap to WordPress
"I challenged myself to an entire weekend to complete the [client] project, utilizing this course as a step-by-step guide. I am happy to say that my challenge was successful! I've already received payment for my work and my client was so impressed that he immediately gave me another project to work on!" — a graduate of Bootstrap to WordPress

- Colour palette
While there are no official "industry standard" rules for visual design — as the beauty of a design purely depends on the audience — there are a set of widely accepted guidelines, or "principles", when it comes to visual communication. The basic principles boil down to the following:
- No prior design or coding knowledge required!
