Hi! I'm Steven

In 2016 I created Show it Better because I believed that the first step to great architecture, is knowing how to communicate it.

Unfortunately, at the time there wasn't a place where you could learn how to visually communicate your architectural ideas. So I created a YouTube channel where I could create free quality content for everyone to learn architectural representation. 

In this course about Presentation Boards, I have the opportunity to visit InDesign and give you a Beginners introduction to how to create presentation boards.
