What students say

"Zach's been a great mentor! His feedback has been an invaluable source to helping me overcome design problems that I wouldn't have been able to resolve on my own. It's great having a second pair of more experienced eyes to look over my work to help push me into thinking like a better designer. He also goes beyond just answering my homework-related questions and also gave me insight into the design world, as well as outside websites/design news websites that I am now following on a daily basis. Thank you so much Zach & DesignLab! I got more than I thought I would out of this course :)"

- Brittany , Design 101 v1

"He's very helpful and very supportive. We were able to schedule a mentor session after the course schedule had ended, allowing me to progress further in the course though his expert advice."

- Jonatas M, Design 101 v1

"I would like to thank Zach for all of the great advice and feedback he has given me. He understood very well about my struggle of juggling my day job of working full-time and keeping up with my design work. I was working on a landing page design for my current job, and he helped me by giving me very honest feedback and tips to improve my work. I would love to keep in touch with Zach and continue to receive feedback from him if he's open to do that. Thank you Zach! :)"
