Hey I just want to say your courses and this community has been really valuable for me! I love being able to learn from people outside my direct circles and be inspired by so many talented designers. I just landed a new role as a product designer and applying what I’ve learned through the process masterclass has played a big role in giving me the confidence to pursue product design work.
The new vault resource library you compiled is also super helpful. I read one of the articles on negotiating there and it really helped me have the confidence to negotiate when my default is to just just accept right away. So thanks and keep it up!
Oh and also a 70% salary increase from where I was at the beginning of this year. ?
The Process Masterclass was key in helping me understand not just design execution, but also contributed to a foundational business sense. You’ve put together a wealth of personable instruction and resources that will equip others in their careers, whether they’re freelancing or working in-house. If anybody’s on the fence about taking this course, they shouldn’t be, haha. This is a fantastic investment. Grateful for the work you’ve done and continue to do for the design community.
“The Process Masterclass was key in helping me understand not just design execution, but also contributed to a foundational business sense.”
I came across the Process Masterclasss from your dribbble account, I was following you for a long time and I really liked the aesthetic with your web designs. Because I’m a self-taught designer I didn’t really know that much about the theory behind design, design-thinking, typography, … I had some knowledge about that stuff but really not that much. I’m really enjoying doing UX design nowadays and your classes really taught me a lot so I can be more confident in that area. So keep up the good work mate!
Gil grew his influence from 4,000 dribbble followers to 53,000+ followers. And has gotten his work awarded by awwwards, and is on the awwwards jury.
I could probably write a book about how much I've learned from this course since I've been taking it. Unfortunately, I'm not a writer lol. This has been the best money I've spent on a long time. I wish they had something like this available when I had just started designing. This is not your typical design courses, it's way above that. As much as I love the class I think the only thing I love more than this class is the Slack channel — I mean the people I've met are some of the best people, designers, teachers, friends, and colleagues I've ever met. I could go on, but after all, this is just a Dribbble comment. (No, I'm not getting paid to endorse, nor did he ask me to say these things. I'm speaking from the heart and anyone that's taking the class will probably agree with me).
Jaslin got invited by AIGA to be a panelist at one their design conferences, and has done workshops on Adobe Live. He’s worked for brands like Apple, Amazon, Adobe, Visa and Hotels.com.
The class has helped me in every way, from design principles to marketing to pricing. I actually learned a lot about client communication that I have now brought into my photography practice as well.
Amazing photographer - shot the likes of G-eazy. Now running his own studio, offering photography and design. Kjell was a webflow pioneer.
I have loved the process master class. It is an invaluable resource for young designers like myself. I had bought it spontaneously when I got tired of my 9-5 and wanted to fast track my UI design skills to the next level. Little did I know this was just the beginning and it wasn't so much about techniques or execution, there is some of that too but the majority of it, is about the business side of design.
Learning the importance of design thinking, how to communicate ideas with your clients, how to go from a blank canvas to a final product and how to add value to your design work by centering it around Key objectives. I can see myself referencing these lessons throughout my design career. As for the execution part Nguyen recommends it best; make things, make things, make things. That is what I am currently doing. Thanks to the process master class I feel like I have a leg up on my design co-workers. Also, it is awesome being part of the slack community filled with awesome designers to learn from.

It has offered insight into many areas that you can only know about with a certain experience. It’s been valuable to gain a detailed overview of the different parts of a project structure. Strategic, technical and creative. Process is the making of a product so it’s been great to see how it fits together, and fill in pieces I’ve been missing or need to do some further learning on. The personal style of the videos make them easy to watch, like you’re sitting with a teacher rather than just being presented to. Overall I’m really glad I did it and have the material to refer back to when needed.
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.
The process masterclass has helped me strengthen my design principle fundamentals, spurred my curiosity for design thinking, and helped me further solidify my knowledge of grids. Nguyen you've always been super friendly and helpful from day one. With my limited daily time I want to spend more time in the community... this is a resource I will come back to over and over again as reference and to keep me on track. No regrets and extremely happy with joining! There is so much information in a digestible way and with so many resources, this is something you cannot find anywhere else. It's valuable from beginning to end and I'm so happy I took the dive into the class.

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.
Front end dev/designer
I've gotten immense knowledge from this class so far. This has been a great investment.I liked your walkthrough of your process, I've no set process so it was really helpful to watch an expert breakdown their method and just walk us through it. The Business Objectives section helped my thinking of how to bring real benefit to potential clients and just every project. It's stuff I'd heard of but then seeing it laid out like that really got me thinking, I incorporated it into two of my projects already.
“This has been a great investment. I liked your walkthrough of your process, I’ve no set process so it was really helpful to watch an expert breakdown their method and just walk us through it.”
It's been really helpful for me, especially the Design Thinking segment of the class. It was very insightful for me as someone who still relatively new to the world of design. I can already see the benefits from incorporating some aspects of your design process into mine (i.e. moving through that continuous loop of ideation and prototyping and testing until arriving at the answer).
Blayne mixes his psychology expertise with design. He is no longer new and is a experienced designer in the Canadian design space.
Joining this course was the best choice I've ever done in my career, and I'm not exaggerating! It's been an hell of a journey since I've joined it :) I've learned a lot and it made me improve as a designer and because of the access to the process fam. I feel like everything I've learned from the Process Masterclass is super valuable. Even these days I use to watch some videos to remember some steps of the process.
I've worked as a self taught freelancer for 14 years and have never worked in an agency or for an agency. The reason that I decided to invest in PMC was to 'refine' my own process. Having worked in the 'field' there were some aspects that didn't apply due to my experience, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the class. I loved the fact that you gave not only instruction, but templates. (I can't tell you how many times I have changed mine out, so it's fantastic to have those resources) Speaking of resources, I have to applaud you on your alturism in sharing your designs. It's so wonderful seeing peeps on Slack take them and morph them into their own work - obviously highly influenced by yours, but that's how people learn... by being inspired and positively influenced. You are doing a great service to the design community Nguyen, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that, and for the exquisite attention to detail and beautiful presentation of the class.

Honestly I’ve never had a mentor in my design career. It can be very hard to overcome some challenges I face in my current work cause I’m the only product designer working on a full range of company products. So for me being involved in this course and community in Slack is like having an experienced mentor, and being able to get feedback about my work from great designers. Now I feel a way more confident in my work and my employer gives me more and more responsibility in my day to day work so I grow quite quickly.
Just wanted to thank you all for the continuous support and I'm grateful for you @nguyen for taking the time to create a community like this. Today I was promoted into a product designer role that came with quite some benefits. It's been a long journey but I realized being around people like you guys and continuous learning, so many things are possible. Thank you!
Micah is an ex-Amazon product designer now freelancing.
...I just wanted to tell you that I finished the course and it feels like it was tailor made for me. Literally every video you made has and will provide me with value for the foreseeable future. As I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve been freelancing and designing for a around 2.5 years and learnt everything I know from cheaper courses, books and good ol’ hard work.
All learning resources for design only really cater to the beginner crowd but I believe yours is best placed for the designer that already has a bit of experience but wants to transition from intermediate to expert and I believe what they’ll learn from this course could bridge the gap.
Before I started this course I mentioned to you that if I didn’t think I’d learn much from I’d like to get a refund, I definitely won’t be taking up that option and this could be the best design/freelance resource I purchased so far! I previously bought a course from a designer called [Name removed] for the same price and it honestly pales in comparison to the Process Masterclass.
Your kind of like everybody's mentor who buys the course. I’ve been remote since day one so I haven’t had the opportunity to work side-by-side and learn from with somebody with a lot more experience than me, this type of course is the next best thing imo.
So far I've gone through a lot of the Design Thinking lessons because I felt those were more pertinent to my current needs. I've found them useful and it is forcing me to look at myself in a new way since I need to define my value to others. As a freelancer I don't get a lot of feedback from people I work from other then, "this is great." And when I interview for "real" jobs they don't usually tell me why I was passed over.
Honestly I've been a freelancer for years and no one has broken it down so succinctly as to what the tiers are and the value each tier brings.
Really learned a lot of valuable little snippets of how you work, and your process and small details which really helped me in a current project i was working on!
There is a lot of resources that were really valuable and a lot of information that really deep dives into both the business aspect and the craft of design which i love
If someone approached me and asked about a course to learn product management or asked my recommendation I would have no hesitation to recommend the class.
The lessons have been incredible. Everything I learned, I put into practice IMMEDIATELY. Last week, I had to work with some other designers on a project. I taught them some of your grid tips, which improved our design drastically. They now call me the Grid Guru. Over the years, I've developed some bad habits just to get things done for clients. By finishing the lessons, I was able to start replacing those bad habits with good ones. Your lessons are easy to remember and easy to implement. I am glad I will be able to keep reviewing the lessons & resources to make sure my good habits stick. Thank you, Nguyen!
Everything else is on point and just what's needed when you're starting out as a UX designer.
I really enjoyed the process masterclass I feel like I've leveled up in my approach to visual design. Honestly I was able to immediately implement what I learned on a real-life project so the class came just in time! The project turned out great visually and I attribute much of that success to this course. Please make another! Maybe on research, or branding.
Love the content! Everything is to the point and exactly what I wanted to learn. You can learn the entire process by yourself that is usually done by a whole team in a company.
Awesome! For real, it's been one of the most valuable courses I've ever taken. I think I've watched the typography lesson 3 times already...But again, I've been really enamored with it all. Please continue to be yourself in these videos. I love when you drop the f-bomb, I love when you correct little mistakes on the fly. I love to see you play around and not have things totally fleshed out all the time. All of it helps me learn in a way that is truly enjoyable. Thank you!
[5 stars] Because it's helped me grow as a designer. Within just a week of watching a few of the lessons I began to change both my thought and work process to create more valuable designs.
The content I was able to get through has been very well structured and expertly delivered.
[5 stars] Because the how relevant the material is and how knowledgeable the instructor is. Everyone looking to start out or even build on prior knowledge can benefit from this course
Pleasantly surprised to see Nguyen actually reply to my messages. Gives a nice personal touch to the learning experience when you can speak directly to the tutor. As for the course itself, worth every penny, pound, or euro! Enjoying my investment decision so far!
[5 stars] Because I recognise the value of what the course offers and would certainly encourage my colleagues to invest in their entrepreneurial and design skill sets as well.
Love the slack community, the lessons are great. The only remark I could have is that the music in the videos is loud and it's very difficult to hear what you say in the video. That's my only problem so far: the audio. Even when there's no background music, the sound is very low and seems distant. Other than that I love the content!
[5 stars] Love so far and think it's a great bang for your buck
Your Process Masterclass is great. I had a great time watching your videos. I loved the Design Execution part. It was very hands on with great examples. What made me purchase your course was the style of your design and your overall identity. It is my style. It makes me day dream when i watch it/browse it - your site is awesome.
[5 stars] Because you deserved it! The intention, the work, the price, the cool layouts, the nice identity.
I love the lessons a lot. It's down to earth, practical and easy to apply to day-to-day design projects
It's the best course I found about it and I've done a lot when I was studying. I'm very passionate about design, mainly the ideation and execution phase and I'm an intermediate level designer and for this I would like more and more content about grids, visual concepts, masters, color for UI, grids, image editing, vector, icons, etc....But I really like your content.
[5 Stars] Because visual digital design is my passion and when I find quality content not for beginners and from people I admire (design style, work experience, etc) I enjoy a lot.
Lessons: Very insightful and super helpful in helping me grow as a designer and in my process/thinking. Interface: clear, simple, and concise. Resources are easy to find. Never have trouble finding anything I need.
Slack: It's funny how you can feel like a lone designer when you're a one man team in-house and a freelancer. This gives me a reminder that I'm not and a place to be inspired/sharpened by others.
Nguyen: I don't like flattery. I try to be genuine and kind with my words always. So when I say it, I mean it and I'm not trying to get something out of it. I also have felt very cared for since the start, due to your intentionality with me before I even registered, and throughout this whole thing you have constantly checked in. Thank you, my friend! Your intentionality and authenticity pushes me (and a ton of other people) in a great direction. Also, you are hella humble and approachable. ??
Great! I already saw improvements in the way I design. Really enjoyed the Typography lessons mostly.
I haven't have the chance to follow all the lessons but so far so good. I like the interface and everything around it.
The slack community is great, and you were quick to respond to a couple of questions I sent through via email. So far, so good! It's a quality course, and great to get insight into the process of a fellow creative.
Absolutely satisfied, exactly what I was looking for.
Jay L. Heard
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!"
Alright the biggest thing I’ve gained is … Real world insight. Insight on how a professional(s) work. Insight as to techniques and how to work with clients. ..I know at some point I would want to freelance, you’ve worked with some big brands and I thought to myself where else would I get this information. Of course I could try to find something free online but would it really be accurate? This is coming from someone that’s credible.
You teach with heart, I can feel it
Lessons have been great, really insightful and enjoyable delivery on camera. The Slack community and your personal attention to interactions are the best parts though.
Because I got a lot of value from it and it's unlike anything else out there.
I think the lessons are pretty cool but I really appreciate your honesty and responses to emails. I think you've provided the design community with a great resource.
My experience has been super great since I've joined Process Masterclass. I've learned a ton since the moment I started it and with it, the opportunity to make part of this community and learn with each other is something super valuable these days.
[5 Stars] Because I've learned a lot and it made me improve as a designer and because of the access to the process fam community. I feel like everything I've learned from the Process Masterclass is super valuable. Even these days I use to watch some videos to remember some steps of the process.
[5 Stars] The content is good and useful
I really like the quality work you have created. Good explanations and solutions on topics. Process Masterclass is a great resource for learning more and also gives a better understanding on making design decisions.
