What students say

"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! :)"

"Zach was great, provided a lot of good feedback and was quick to help and assist to whatever I needed for assignment and provided advice/critique and additional source of useful recommendations such as fonts and gridwork."

"Zach's been a really great mentor. He's incredibly knowledgable in design and has great feedback for continued improvement. 10/10 would have as my mentor again. "

- Elizabeth Sockol , Design 101

"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 :)"
