What students say

"I just wanted to tell you how much I loved having Katie as my mentor. She was honest, specific and always took the time to give detailed feedback. She was excellent at analyzing details and helping me fine tune my work. I loved her calm and easy going personality and I looked forward to my sessions with her every week. I also wanted to thank you for pairing me with her as she is from a print background and I had never taken typography. I am really sad that I won't have her as a mentor for UX Academy and I wish I could continue having her as a mentor. Designlab is super super lucky to have her! I really hope she is celebrated for the amazing work that she does!!!!!"

"Katie is AMAZING!!! She is so nice and was awesome to work with. As someone that was new working with Adobe photoshop, Katie was extremely helpful in teaching me how to work with the program and gave me advice with better ways I can be using it. As for my work, Katie was wonderful and gave excellent and honest constructive feedback which gave my work an incredible professional looking finish. I would reccommend Katie to ANYONE! Thank you Katie and DesignLab for such an awesome experience."

"Katie was a really fantastic mentor. From day one she sent additional resources for me to look at that were specific to the types of projects I wanted to work on. She was quick to offer feedback on my projects and offered really personalized advice. I wasn't expecting to get that much attention and it was really nice to have our check-ins once a week. i learned a ton from her and it was overall a really positive experience!"
