What students say

“very knowledgable! has many additional resources and easily pulls in first hand work experience to show examples of how lessons apply in the real world. written feedback is pretty clear, often clarified in the weekly call. sometimes unresponsive/not timely. I would benefit from setting expectations of response time & preferred method of communicating between calls - during our first call, and checking in with how we are communicating at the beginning of each session. i wish DL promoted written feedback on work so that I could see how other mentors reflect on my peers work- would be a really helpful resource!”

- Calley P, Design 101

“Great feedback on my work, very articulate and encouraging. Would highly recommend Darold as a mentor!”

- Litsa T, Design 101

“Wonderful mentor! Really made my experience in the course very great.”

- Garrett H, Design 101

“Darold is fantastic as a mentor. He is super prompt when it comes to feedback, doesn't miss out on details and is very considerate while giving feedback. He goes out of his way and shares examples of his own work and otherwise whenever he's making a case. He's also very accomodating when it comes to mentor sessions.”

- Tarun M, UI Design

“Great mentorship - thoughtful feedback and easy to talk to. Thanks, Darold!”

- Nora F, UI Design

“Darold is an excellent mentor. He is very knowledgable about the UX/UI design field with 10+ years experience and is willing to share what he's learned. As much as he likes to provide feedback and insight from personal experiences, he also allows room for open discussion and time for questions at the end of every mentor sessions. He is easily accessible and provided me with an ample amount of supportive material to read/watch to bolster my design learning experience. I would recommend Darold as a mentor because he shows key qualities of someone open and willing to teach design.”
