In earlier blogs, we discussed how, when it comes to our contemporary generation's attention span, audio-visual content is more graspable than textual content. This makes it even more crucial when it comes to acquiring or improving a skill. If you've been wishing to learn about design from scratch or in-depth and you're broke, like many beginner learners, it's only natural to turn to YouTube for assistance in finding videos. Over time, a plethora of outlets of design lessons has emerged. While it is encouraging to hear that individuals value the profession of design, it is difficult to identify relevant and time-worthy channels. To make learning easier for you, we've put together five such channels that cover everything from the fundamentals of design and business to how to create a brand identity from the ground up!
