What Are We Looking For?  

We’re looking for instructors that have a deep understanding of their topic and experience teaching it. If you’ve produced a course online, written a book on the subject you want to teach, or you’ve taught a course through a university, then we’d like to chat with you. Also, if you have a rocking portfolio of work or have mastered a must share design or illustration technique, then reach out to us. If this is your first foray into teaching through online videos, we’re happy to guide you through the course development process.

Our design and illustration courses teach students through assignments and projects. Many of our courses blend the teaching of long standing, solid, craft-based techniques with practical software implementation. Students will take the concepts you teach and learn how to apply them directly into their work, boosting their knowledge, and the quality of their output. Here are some of the topics we’re recruiting for: 

  • Graphic Design
  • Branding
  • Illustration
  • Illustrative Design
  • Typography
  • Lettering
  • Calligraphy
  • Drawing
  • Digital Painting

These are just a few of the top-level topics we’re producing courses on. We're looking to cover the full spectrum from beginner to advanced on these subjects and their related sub-topics. Each of these subjects are endlessly deep and filled with engaging potential courses waiting to be taught. What course would you like to add?

Here’s How to Apply
