"I'm a self-taught designer with a background in Psychology. I chose DesignerUp because of its focus on mindful design and because I'm a big fan of Elizabeth's brilliant way of teaching through her free content on Youtube. The curriculum is thoroughly and thoughtfully designed. I was able to review and actually better understand some of the concepts that I came across during my self-taught journey. Since I'm interested in product and design strategy, I was glad to learn more about it in the course. Fun fact, I actually paid for this course using all my stipend at my very first UX Design internship, and it left me with no regret! :)"
"DesignerUp has helped me understand the basics of what I need to know and consider in my design. Moreover, students are provided information at a good pace. Therefore, I recommend it to those who want to learn more about product design without picking up pieces here and there."
"This course has been life changing for me...I am amazed by what I learn with every lesson. I have grown confident about my skills and improvement with UX/UI in 5 months so far."
"This master class is the best you’ll find online!, it was beyond my expectations. It has everything you need to know about UX and UI."
"Elizabeth is the epitome of everything a mentor and teacher should be: invested; curious; empathetic; empowering; communicative; and mindful. I couldn't recommend working with Elizabeth (and DesignerUp!) more — I wouldn't be the designer, operator, and mindful human being I am today without her."
"I come from the Business and Marketing background and I wanted to switch into more Product Marketing Design. The great in-depth course of product UX/UI design functions was extremely helpful for me. The course is very comprehensive with a lot of super useful and meaningful techniques to learn. The instruction style was very easy to follow and I appreciate all of the designer discounts."
"This course is helping to structure my product design thinking. It combines business, design, metric, and technical skills under one roof. I highly recommend this course to people who are interested in understanding how a product is developed."
"Loving the course so far! I have a full time job and being able to work on the Modules/Assignments on my time has been a big plus for me. The videos are never too long. I'm always able to pause and take notes. Big fan and i'm looking forward to learning more."
This course is extremely valuable, helped me to gather an overall understanding of proper product design, instead of making sense of scattered notes from articles and books.
"I'm a pretty experienced designer and art director and I think I have a pretty good head for marketing, yet I'm sheepishly admitting that, over the course of this class, you've been forcing me to look at websites in whole new ways."
Well organised and structured course. Great for beginners but even more experienced product designers can find some new things to learn.
"When I was looking around at courses to level up my product design and strategy skills, DesignerUp very quickly stood out among the competitors as the perfect option for my needs. Primarily I was looking for an asynchronous option so I could structure it around my full time workload, and I appreciated the more tailored, individualized approach to the lessons."
"The new resources I have already gained have been amazing. I have found myself with ah ha moments and already viewing websites completely different."
"Excellent, informative tutorials covering design thinking, interaction design practices through the entire process of digital user experience and product design."
"The information I have learned is invaluable and a must for anyone looking to start a career in this field."
I really like this course as it presents all there is to learn in an easy way, with examples and templates. I would recommend this course.
