When it comes to creating a website, there are plenty of easy options available. Problem is, the easy option isn't always the best. Take something as simple as glyph icons for your app. You can simply purchase a stock collection of glyphs and integrate them in no time. Easy? Certainly, but every other app on the planet has the same look and feel when it comes to icons. Don't you want to make yours really stand out?
The talented folks over at Designboost want to help. They believe strongly in the old proverb: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime". They don't want to just give you a bunch of glyphs. Nope. They want to teach you how to make your own. And that's exactly what they do in this exemplary online design course.
