A real-world style of learning
Although many universities and design courses help students to step outside the box and improve their technical skills and software knowledge, they lack substance when setting projects that emulate real client work that freelancers and agencies have to deal with on a daily basis. Often, in the professional world, these tasks are demanding and require a fast turnaround, and that's where designing with Briefbox™ differs from spending years at college or university; it's quick learning in a realistic environment!
