What students say
"Patrick is a fantastic mentor! He challenges me to design better and provides thorough and actionable feedback. He’s very knowledgeable and gives me guidance on how these principles are applicable in the real world."
- Winnie Lau, Design 101
"Patrick is a very helpful and competent tutor. He helped me both with the course works and my personal projects, by making me able to recognise and fix some mistakes I made. It was great to ask for his advices."
- Federica Pisuttu, UI Design
"Really enjoyed my feedback sessions with Patrick. His feedback and analysis gave me an insight into how a designer thinks through a project. His questions made me think about my own design decisions, explain them and iterate on the assignments. He gave me many ideas to approach a problem when I was stuck, and also shared many resources for me to explore further. I hope to stay in touch because there is lots to learn from him! Thanks Patrick!"

"Patrick was super helpful and understanding. I wish this course were 2x as long, as I would love to have more of his feedback in a few weeks when I hope to have more time to keep working on some of these projects. Patrick was very flexible, gave me specific helpful resources and lots of encouragement. Vielen Dank :)"

I really enjoyed working with him and would hope to have him as a mentor in another course. "
