See what some of them have to say.
Not one of the layouts demonstrated here is impressive, rather amateurish and bland. I regularly create similar layouts and am not impressed by my own work. Couldn't improve anything from this course. One might argue that this is a fundamentals course, but you would except to see a master create a wonderful layout from scratch, not what an amateur like me would create.
