"Extremely clear and effective methodology shared by Amir. Highly recommend this course." - Ivan Lanuza

"I was able to apply what I learned here to create a prototype that was presented as part of a business plan at university." - Adam Archer

"Very effective course. The content and methodology are very straight forward and solid" - Josh David

"The most useful & effective methods I've come across to help you take an idea in your head into something concrete. Will use this for all my future projects. Wish I'd known this sooner. Highly Recommended!" -Akshay Arabolu

"Excellent course, exactly what I needed to build UI/UX momentum for my product. I cranked through it in less than 2 hours and I'm ready to take my product to the next level." -Andrew Beinbrink

"This was a fantastic course & experience - one that I will continue to use and refine. It was more than worth the cost and time invested. Amir explains "the process" in a very simple, clear & concise manner, and had just the right amount of detail. I was so inspired that I scrapped my original MVP design and followed the step by step process. What a HUGE improvement! I now have a REAL product that I am proud of. Amir also makes himself very accessible and is very responsive. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this course." - Stacey Arbetter

"Most hands-on tutorials in UX so far!" - Arti Villa
