WHAT STUDENTS SAY
Thinking about joining the Process Masterclass? Nothing makes me prouder than seeing the class provide value for it’s students. It is a community and a family of talented designers. The heart of this course is about sharing my knowledge to help you increase your value and excel your career as a designer. Something from the perspective of a Creative Director & practicing designer, not just as a theorist or a ‘guru’ – the course touches on the high level stuff from design thinking all the way down to a practical hands on point of view. To gear you with a clear framework to improve.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Honestly I took a shot in the dark with this class it's 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 because 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.
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.
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).
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!
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.
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.
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 photoshop 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.
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.
I love the lessons and especially the resources that go with each one. I gained so much from it. I was a pixel pusher. Now I feel a legitimate designer.
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.
...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.
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 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).
