We all understand that the earlier the stage of a startup the more functions a founder has to cover, before they can get more specialists onboard. If you don’t happen to have a design background, we’ve assembled design principles together with a list of design tools and resources for founders who want to make their product and/or marketing material beautiful but don’t have the design skills or the time to do so.
Fabio Schasse de Araujo from ForSuperHeroes has shared some design principles with the rest of the cohort and the High-Tech SeedLab team. To put theory into practice, these tools and resources will cut you some slack when you have to create a pitch deck or roll out designs. The ability to move fast will encourage you to build product iterations, test landing pages, or create compelling marketing campaigns without the barrier or extra burden of design legwork.
