WHAT DESIGNERS WHO HAVE TAKEN THE COURSE HAVE TO SAY

“Nguyen has simplified a shitload of design knowledge into something easily understandable. As well as including his experiences and know-how as a successful designer. The masterclass gave me the keys (or steps lol) to the process of a project from beginning to end. No doubt all this will be very useful if I ever wanted to freelance. Great stuff.”

 

JOHNNY LE

PRODUCT DESIGNER

“I absolutely love the process-master class. The straight forward no BS approach to design. The multiple different categories and options for learning new skills, refreshing old ones or trying different challenges, and the student project resources are superb. The process-masterclass is definitely one of the stops that I take to get my creative grind flowing. I give the master-class – Two thumbs way up!”

 

J.L HEARD

FREELANCE DESIGNER

“Honestly I took a shot in the dark with this class it's $300 the most I've spent in one sitting on a class. And while I took the class I tried, believe me I tried to look for any reason to just ask for a refund because of the 14 day money back guarantee. I can say this I'm glad I used the $300 for me it was 100% worth it.... I appreciate all you have done for me and anyone else that has bought your class to receive those golden nuggets and 10 years of experience that you give. THANK YOU! Because you could have chosen not to make this class at all.”

 

STALONE SYLVESTER

JUNIOR DESIGNER

“Your style really works for these...professional, knowledgeable, yet casual. I especially loved the typography video. That’s probably my favorite aspect of design, and I love getting the insight to how you work and lay things out…Watching/hearing you walk through the different layouts and explain your basic reasoning on each was great. I could watch an entire course on typography lessons like this! Hearing a lot of your business goals/objectives stuff has been good, too. I haven’t really worked for large organizations with big teams yet, so I’m lacking in that area. Good stuff.”
