"Learn from Great Design is a very useful and easy way to learn from someone that has a good eye for design. Tom is excellent in explaining things in an easy way, pointing out the parts of the design that is brilliant yet most of us take for granted once we see a web page. I highly recommend Learn from Great Design to both beginners and experts."
There is so much information out there and it changes so fast that it can feel like what you've learnt is becoming obsolete. Learn from Great Design Volume 1 has real world examples from the latest and greatest web design techniques but it also contains actionable tips that stand the test of time.
Learn from Great Design Volume 1 takes the stress out of having to keep up with modern design by showing the best modern designs to you.
Don't spend hours in design galleries. They don't go into detail about what makes each design great. In fact, they don't say what's great about them at all.
Many of the web designs they select aren't really that good. Design galleries are funded by ads which means they need as many people to visit as many times as possible so they constantly need new websites to feature. The problem with that is they aren't curated enough so it can be a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack. Only the best designs are chosen for Learn from Great Design.
I've spent hours on each Learn from Great Design study so you don't have to. I just want you to focus on creating your own great designs.
"I'm a new web designer and I love reading Tom's case studies because he breaks down a website and explains what makes the design good or bad. He doesn't use 'fluffy' language but gives concrete reasons as to what makes the design work. These concrete reasons are what I can use in my own work. After reading Tom's case studies, I've been able to build up a library of 'good design principles' that serve as a foundation for me to create my websites."
I believe in the quality of Learn from Great Design to help you create your own great designs and I've poured my heart and soul into creating a gold mine of knowledge that will enable you to make better websites.

Hello there, I'm Tom Kenny.
I'm a freelance web designer from London with over 7 years experience. During that time, I've designed websites that millions of people have used. The biggest company I've worked with have over 4 million users.
I write regularly on my web design blog, Inspect Element, and I've written for other websites, including Smashing Magazine.
Absolutely. I've spoken to many developers who want to learn design and there isn't a better way to start learning than from studying the best. You won't have to study the best for hours as I've done the work for you. I try to explain everything as simply as possible so people of all levels can learn.
A Masterclass study is a more in-depth look at a great design than usual. Typically masterclasses are studies of more complex websites, such as Airbnb.
Websites change over time. Obviously I can't control that but screenshots and videos are included in the book in case the live designs do change. You'll still be able to learn from the great design in the book regardless of any differences.
