Robyn is a ROCKSTAR

Robyn is a ROCKSTAR. Not to mention you’ll be completely charmed by her charismatic and bubbly personality. She was my first mentor and teacher in the design/advertising world. I still to this day incorporate design and presentation techniques that I learned while under her wing. 


I thought it was so brave to go off and start her own company and when she launched her first line of products, all I could think was WOW. Everything was so unique, detailed and beautiful I couldn’t help but admire her freelance work and how she was handling her brand. I still check in regularly to see what kind of new design techniques and fun products she comes up with. 


It takes a very hardworking and dedicated person to push themselves beyond the comfort of a 9-5, but she took it on(what seemed like to me) effortlessly. 


Anyone would be lucky to learn from Robyn’s vast knowledge on applying her design skills to her growing business. I’d be lying if I said I’d be where I was today without her supervision and guidance when I was such a new baby in the world of design."

how long do i have to enroll?

the course is open for enrollment until just before the official live date. HOWEVER, seats are limited so it's best to signup sooner than later. also, since this is the initial launch of this course, the timing for the next opportunity to enroll has not yet been finalized. so, if you’re ready to startup, get on in here!

when does the course start?

the official launch is in september 2019 (exact date TBA). you’ll be able to access the course materials starting on the live date. from that point on you are able to access the course whenever you want and complete it at your own pace.

if i buy today, why can't i access the course NOW?

great question! since this is a brand new course and we are putting the finishing touches on everything, we're offering special limited time pricing, along with extra perks just for our founder members (that’s you!)! you can totally wait and enroll in the few days before the course is live and enrollment closes, but you’ll likely miss out on big savings and extra goodies! the course will never be priced as low as it is durning this limited-time pre-sale so, if you like saving money, now is the time to invest in yourself!

how long will i have access to the course?

you'll have lifetime access, my friend! that is, as long as the loft + co. and our hosting platform are in biz, you'll be able to access the course materials and all updates to the course, too! if we switch platforms, you’ll be notified and given access there as well!

what is your refund policy?

we want nothing more than for you to be happy and succeed as a designer, and are confident that this is just the course to get you on your way! however, success takes a LOT of hard work. there's no magic button. so we only want you to invest if you are truly committed and ready to invest in yourself and put in the work (at your own pace). but due to the digital nature of the content, potential mailed bonuses, and the individualized feedback that’s involved, we DO NOT offer refunds under any circumstances. we DO however allow a one-time transfer to another aspiring #designboss of your choosing if for some reason you are not interested in continuing. you can view the full policy in our terms + conditions .

do you have a payment plan?

yes! we totally get what it's like trying to get started while juggling multiple bills and responsibilities, so we made sure to include both a payment plan and a pay-in-full option. 


our goal is to make this as easy, fun, and doable as possible for you! we never want you to overextend yourself. but we hope you see it as an investment in your future self! p.s...if you ARE able to pay in full, there's usually some type of discount and/or extra goodies involved.

are you dripping content?

nope! you will get access to the full course instantly on the live date and have access to all of the content to complete at your own pace.

who is this course for?

great question! this course is perfect for you if: 

  • you’re an aspiring designer looking to learn skills needed to launch a freelance business. 
  • you’re looking for a no-fluff, get-down-to-business style course presented in a fun and easy-to-understand format. 
  • you’re a self-starter willing to put in the work to become a superstar designer and business owner. 
  • you're SO over your 9-5 and want to use your creativity to create a #bosslife with more freedom in your schedule

who is this course NOT for?

an even better question! this course is probably NOT for: 

  • well-established designers/businesses. we love you but we just don’t want you to get bored!
  • anyone who’s ONLY looking for a shortcut. spoiler: there’s no such thing as a shortcut to good design! sure, this course is packed with tips and techniques and things that will put you on the fast track, but while we have certainly streamlined things for you there’s no magical button or way to learn the skills and be successful without putting in the work.

how long does the course take to complete?

the course is self paced, so it depends a lot on your schedule and how quickly you're able to work through and absorb the material. generally, it will take most students 2-4 weeks to get through the lessons, really absorb the material, and put it into practice. 


the most time-consuming parts are the hands-on design projects.everyone works differently so time will vary per project, but you should plan to allow yourself a couple hours minimum per project from start to finish (btw, if you love to design, the time will FLY by!) 


please note: this is only an estimate to get through the course itself. it is an ongoing process to perfect your skills and build your portfolio. it will take lots of practice to become proficient in the design programs and for your skills to become second nature.

do i need a computer?

yes! since this is an e-course all lessons will be presented online. you'll also need a computer to complete the hands-on projects and follow along in the lessons. now, i’m a #macgirl through and through, so that is what i recommend. but, if you have a PC that is totally fine, too! FYI, any tutorials or tips presented are mac-specific. 

do i need to buy fancy software?

nothing fancy here, but adobe creative suite apps are required to complete the projects in this course. if you're serious about being a designer these apps will basically become an extension of you and you'll more than get your money's worth. the programs that will be needed are: 


• indesign

• illustrator 

• photoshop 


adobe creative cloud has a free trial and various monthly payment plans so you can pick the apps and payment that works best for you.

if i enrolled in the full designer startup program, do i need this course too? 

nope! this entire mini course is covered in the designer startup program, 

YAY i signed up for the course! now what?

woohoo! we're so excited you're joining us, and CONGRATS on the first step toward becoming a design pro! shortly, you’ll receive a welcome email with all the deets on what to expect, what's happening when, and the scoop on anything you may need to have ready to roll before the course officially launches. these emails will be showing up in your inbox in the coming weeks. yay! can’t wait to meet you!

what if i have more questions?

i know you've got big designer dreams.

i can help you make them real, and make it super simple for you, too. 


and, i know you’re busy so we'll skip the fluff and get right 

to the good stuff, so you can learn quickly, work efficiently 

and be on your way to living your daydream.
