What students say

"Brenon was on top of feedback and it was sooooo helpful because I could work at a quick pace. He's so nice to talk to and work with. He had really great recommendations and he pushed me to get past common design pattern to be more creative."

- Jenni, Design 101

"Brenon was wonderful to work with. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave very thorough, analytical feedback on every submission. He was accommodating and responsive in terms of scheduling as well. Prior to this course I never thought about the function or reasoning to art or design, but after working with Brenon, I have able to streamline my own ideas by making conscientious visual decisions by considering purpose and reason. Overall, I really enjoyed working with Brenon and definitely recommend him to anyone interested in UX/UI! "

- Cassie Cheng, Design 101

"Simply awesome! Brenon was very helpful in my understanding of design and challenged me to think of things outside of how I normally would. For a complete novice to design, he broke things down for me so that I could understand and improved my learning. He also had some great insight for improving my app and went out of his way to provide more information that would be helpful to me. Thank you Brenon!"
