  4. Mia Worthington

    The UX Design course is one of the most practical and hands-on courses I’ve ever done; we were actively doing, not passively listening to theory.

  5. David Martin

    Adrian was really nice and had loads of knowledge, he was happy to answer any questions

  6. Sophie Williams

    thanks for a very insightful week 🙂

  7. Trishan Wijeranta

    I was never switched during any other course as I was in this course. Adrian has a good set of knowledge on the industry. And it was nice to have the one to one experience with him since it helped me overcome most of the questions I had about UX/UI. I would definitely recommend Adrian to anyone who is thinking to change careers to into UX/UI. About the course, I was hoping to have more on the UI as well. Perhaps how to use different types of softwares. We were only shown the Adobe XD. However, over all I am satisfied with the course.
