Good design isn't the kind of thing that's taught as a core class in most educational systems. However, knowing just a bit about how design works can help you in many jobs. This video gives even a beginner the kickstart they need.

The video above isn't a tutorial so much as a video periodic table of design elements. Each element–like symmetry, negative space, and composition–are demonstrated by themselves in an isolated way. If you don't have any background in design at all, this video may be a good place to start your googling from, if you don't happen to recognize a term or want to know more about it. You can also check out our weekend class on design here.
