What students say

“When the Designlab team said that we would be mentoring by experts, I was anxious about how it would be. The anxiety passed in the first session with John. In addition to being gentle, the way he gives feedback is incredible, always in a positive way, encouraging me to make improvements and always guided by the practices of Design. In addition, he always provided me with extra tips and materials that he found relevant.”

- Roberta A, UX Academy Foundations

“John was a very professional mentor that provided an objective view and constructive feedback. He was always willing to help answer any questions I had about the course or the industry.”

- Melody H, Design 101

“John was a great mentor. It's easy to talk with him. He gave me clear and actionable feedback and answered all my questions along the course. He passed me precious knowledge with a real world focus. Thank you John.”

- Nathan V, Design 101

“John was super great to work with. He was very informative and available. He always gave feedback in a very kind and precise way. Thanks so much for your help John!”

- Brooke P, Design 101

“John is an amazing Mentor. I would say he does support his students with empathy and understanding. He provides helpful feedback that would address areas to improve on. Thank you!”

- Jose O, Design 101

“John was great to work with - giving me solid, clear feedback each time we spoke and communicated. He really got the gist of the vision I had for my course's project and helped me realize it in ways I hadn't even conceived of - stretching me to do things outside my comfort zone and allowing me to grow as a designer. Many thanks!”

- David B, Design 101

“John was great! Very supportive, positive, and helpful with resources and encouragement.”

- Cash H, Design 101

“John is a great mentor, and is able to accommodate with times very well. He gives good feedback, and is very precise with the advice that he gives. I hope to be able to continue communicating with him through Designlab, and after.”

- Neeran G, Design 101

“John is awesome! He gives timely and helpful feedback and really meets you where you’re at but gives you the tools to improve and learn more. He also had a wealth of knowledge and really takes the time to share it and make sure you’re getting not only what you want out of the course but what you need to be successful.”

- Ashley W, UI Design

“John has been a pleasure to work with during this course. He gives pointed, helpful feedback in a timely manner, and is always polite when getting his point across. He has encouraged me to think about many elements of the project I am working on, as well as broader aspects of the career field in general. I'm very grateful to have his perspective and advice. John's birdseye view of design work has been helpful to me, especially as I often get sucked into the details of a project, and he helps bring me back out to see the bigger picture. He has been supportive and intentional with his sessions with me and I look forward to the final sessions we have left.”

- Donia K, Branding

“John was a great mentor providing me with valuable insights into the design/ux industry and provided informative feedback on my designs. He brings a tonne of knowledge gained of many years in the industry.”

- Jay E, Design 101

“He is a great mentor. He lets you take control of your learning. Gives great career advice. Generally just a fantastic teacher.”

- Claire B, Design 101

“John always gives very detailed feedback and practical suggestions. He always reviews my deliverables and provides feedback within a short time frame. John has been great!”

- Alexandra S, Branding

“John has been a great mentor. He guided me through the course with professional manner and passion for teaching. He was very quick on responding to my submissions and gave me great feedbacks so I could improve my work. He was good at explaining things if I didn’t understand something. He gave me many inspirations and examples. He encouraged me to keep learning and show my creativity in my own unique way. Because of the mentorship sessions, I’m now more confident and inspired.”

- Emiko Y, UI Design
