What students say

“I'm very happy to had Brian as my mentor. He helped me understand a lot of the design concepts, and applying them to my projects. He gave very good advice and ways to improve my projects.”

- Jennifer C, Design 101

“Brian was awesome! Not only was he very responsive to all my questions from the comment section in DesignLab, but was also there to answer any questions I had via email. I liked that he knew where my strengths were and pushed me in the areas that I needed help within visual design. That was the most helpful to me. He was very easy to talk to and I felt comfortable asking questions that I might not have asked in a classroom setting. Brian answered questions that I had not only about the course but also questions I had about the industry and the day to days of a visual designer. Thanks Brian!!!”

- Gabriella C, Design 101

“Brian was a GREAT mentor. He understood my main problem and soon taught me that design is not all about aesthetics but it's about solving problems. It changed my mind and the way I see this job. All his explanations were very clear, I'm not a native english speaker and he was very patient and kind while teaching, he was ready to repeat different time the same concept to help me understand deeply and memorize. He knows all the topic very well, so his explanations were very clear. Every time I've written to him an email to give me directions about how to execute a project, he replied very soon despite the time zone difference. He was very honest and whenever I made mistakes he clearly addressed them, explained me what the mistake was, how to fix it and don't repeat it again. He was also ready to congratulate my improvements, and this helped me understand what I'm good at and what I have to learn more about. In the end, during all the course he guided me to what steps to take in order to start my career in design and shared some places where I could start. I wouldn't have appreciated this course as much as I did without his guide whenever I felt lost in project requirements. I'd surely give him even 10 stars if I could. He's sympathetic and has a good sense of humor too :)”

“I can't thank Brian enough for his mentorship during the Design 101 course. He was professional, down-to-earth, deeply experienced, and eloquent with his feedback and support. If I continue to do coursework with DesignLab, I would credit Brian a LOT for my decision to do so!”
