YOUTUBE CHANNELS FOR ASPIRING WEB DESIGN

There are a lot of different ways to learn about web design and development. Blogs and online tutorials can be extremely useful (and they were instrumental for me),  but YouTube is also a great source of content. There are many channels that share design and development tutorials, as well as news and trends, and even tips for growing your own business as a freelancer or finding a job.

If you’re interested in learning more about web design and development, here are 15 YouTube channels that you should definitely check out. There is a good bit of variety here, as some focus on more technical aspects of web development, while others are design-oriented, and a few produce a lot of videos on the business aspects.

1. DesignCourse

With over 400,000 subscribers, Gary Simon’s DesignCourse channel is a great resource. Gary has 20 years of development experience and on his channel he has a huge collection of educational videos that will teach you how to become a web developer. He publishes two new videos each week, so there is always plenty of new stuff to watch and learn.

Gary has a lot of experience creating courses for big names in the industry like Envato and Lynda, so he’s very comfortable teaching and guiding you through the lessons that you’ll need to learn.

Although a lot of the videos focus on coding, Gary also covers topics related to design and UI on his channel. If you’re looking for a place to learn more and grow your web design skills, this is a great place to start.

In addition to logo design, Will also covers some general design-related topics, and he’s got some great videos on freelancing and building a business.You’ll love the series where Will critque’s the logo designs of some of his subscribers. It’s a great way to learn and see the thought process of a pro, and maybe you’ll even be able to get your own logo critiqued.

3. Learn Code Academy

As I’m sure you would expect, the content from LearnCode.academy focusses mostly on the coding and development aspect. With more than 600,000 subscribers, this is an extremely popular channel. New videos aren’t added all that frequently right now (11 videos added in the past year) but there is a ton of great content throughout the archives.

You’ll find some really useful videos on HTML and CSS that are intended for beginners, which is a great starting point. There are also videos on other topics like responsive web design that will take your skills to the next level.

4. Derek Banas

The content covered on Derek Banas’ channel is broader than many of the other channels featured here. You’ll find videos on things like coding websites, creating video games, exercising, and many other topics (like a recent video on how to play the ukelele).

Derek creates videos based on user requests, so if there is something in particular that you want to learn, you can reach out to him (although with 900,000+ subscribers I imagine he gets a lot of requests).

Charli also has a number of videos that are collaborations with other designers, and you can learn a lot from those conversations.

My favorite aspect of Charli Marie TV is the business aspect. Her videos on freelancing and remote work can be incredibly valuable.

Jesse Showalter is a designer and front-end developer living in Hawaii. His channel is very active, with more than 70 videos published in the past year.

Brad is a very experienced designer and developer with years of teaching experience. He does have plenty of content on his channel related to coding (like a series on how to learn jQuery), but the freelancing and business-related videos are the highlight.

Brad is very entertaining and he keeps the videos interesting. He has videos covering topics like dealing with rude clients, pricing your services, working as a consultant, when to quit your job, and much more.
