"The mentorship and information that I received during this course was so amazing that I have been able to transition from my career to UX before I completed the course."
"Elizabeth I read a ton, 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."
"Great way to learn UX/UI by seeing real-world examples. I love how you can contact the instructors and other students within the course to get feedback and learn from them."
"This course is amazing! The quality, affordability and relevance of the content is what I appreciate most. Elizabeth is a wonderful mentor and is always willing to work through any questions or concerns I have."
"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."
"The information I have learned is invaluable and a must for anyone looking to start a career in this field."
"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."
"DesignerUp teaches you to start with the 'why' and the 'who' rather than the 'what', and Elizabeth delivers ever so thoughtfully! This course is 100% worth it just for the research portion alone! But what really makes this course stand apart from the others is the clear passion the instructors have for answering and over-delivering for their students."
"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 ui/ux in 5 months so far."
"Excellent, informative tutorials covering design thinking, interaction design practices through the entire process of digital user experience and product design."
"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 UI/UX 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 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."
"The new resources I have already gained have been amazing. I have found myself with ah ha moments and already viewing websites completely different."
"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."
