    - Bryan Starbuck, Founder & CEO, TalentSpring (Acquired by TalentTech)

    "We hired Amir to create a full Interaction and Graphical design for an application we are launching. It was a big, complex project on a startup timeline, requiring the design of web-facing and client side components, to be built fast. Amir delivered beautiful, outstanding work. Most of all, Amir ended up doing a better job of managing our timeline than even we did."

    Great Course

    This course was a great intro into the world of UX. I've been wanting to crossover into this field for sometime and now I feel comfortable making that transition. All the concepts were broken down into manageable steps and the websites he recommended were really helpful and inspiring.

  • Ivan Lanuza
    Very practical

    Extremely clear and effective methodology shared by Amir. Highly recommend this course.

  • Aymanko
    Nice course . quite overpriced .

    The course is fine and the trainer walks you through the process of putting your web site idea into a tangible and structured diagrams and sketches . What i liked about it : it is all practical and hands on. What i didn't like : 1- I think it is slightly overpriced. 2- Lecture 10 had an incorrect summary which he promised to fix long time ago but unfortunately it is still unfixed.

  • Adam Archer
    Well laid out, clear examples, no "filler"

    I enjoyed the flow of this course and thought that the screen capture of the design process were great. I am completely new to user experience design but was able to catch on quickly. I was able to apply what I learnt here to create a prototype that was presented as part of a business plan at university. I will definitely be watching some of these videos again to improve my skills as we plan on having our app developed!

  • Josh David
    Solid, Simple and Useful!

    Very effective course. The content and methodology are very straight forward and solid. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in properly figuring out and putting together their ideas into documents and prototypes needed to take your idea to product. Thank you, this has been very useful to me!
