Design Instruct: A New Tutorial Web Magazine for Designers

Jan 26 2010 by Jacob Gube | 25 Comments

As we near the second year anniversary of Six Revisions, I (along with my brother Ike) have launched our latest web project, Design Instruct, a web magazine that aims to teach designers and digital artists useful techniques by way of detailed and step-by-step tutorials.

Design Instruct: A New Tutorial Web Magazine for Designers

Thank You Six Revisions Community

I want to thank you all for the support that you’ve given Six Revisions. It’s almost been two years since I started this website, and I couldn’t have imagined that we’d all be here where we are now.

It’s been a wild ride from the start, and I hope you’ll stick around for the journey. I also hope that you continue to show your support by joining my brother and me at Design Instruct!

Aaaand – added to my feedlist. As the quality of postings is so great here (and as I still don’t even manage to create a nice template for my site) I am anxious for reading more :)

Sounds interesting but is there a difference with sixrevision ? I dont seem to see any. Am also wondering, what is the purpose of being a “fan of…” on facebook ?

Anyway, good luck with the project ;)

Thank you everyone for your kind and encouraging words. The response thus far has been phenomenal and I have no one else to thank but the support and camaraderie of the design community. It’s an honor to be a tiny part of this wonderful global group of people.

I have followed Six Revisions for quite some time now.

I’m curious, what’s the difference between this new website and Six Revisions? Don’t they technically provide the same thing? If I were to randomly submit a great tutorial, how would you choose which website you would share it from?

Jacob Gube

@Rob: That’s a great question.

I think publishing the web design tutorial first can cause confusion. Design Instruct is for designers, visual arts workers, and digital artists: web design is a part of that, sure, but so is print design, processing photography, designing a t-shirt, and many things that don’t fit the scope of Six Revisions, which is a site for web designers and web developers (people who make websites).

If you submit a Web Design tutorial, it’s up to you where you want it to be published. But if you were to submit a tutorial on designing a vector logo, then it’s more appropriate on Design Instruct.

Also, Design Instruct is centered around step-by-step design tutorials while Six Revisions focuses on articles and “blog posts”, with the occasional web design or web development tutorial.

I look forward to reading Design Instruct… I’ve enjoyed Six Revision a lot and have no doubt the same quality and readability will carry over to your new site.

Thanks Jacob, sex Revisions, et al. :)

Awesome! Sounds like a site I would definitely visit daily as I am no guru yet, and really appreciate detailed tutorials to get “hands on” instruction.

Unfortunately, almost all of the images (there are a few exceptions) are being blocked out by Websense. :( Seems odd for a site like that, but whatever. Looks like I won’t be visiting from work anyway. (probably not a bad thing) :)

Good luck!
