“I was a little nervous starting UX Academy because of my unfamiliarity with the research aspect of UX design. Having Mike as my mentor for Phase 1 completely put my concerns at ease. He was fantastic through the entire process and offered a treasure trove of knowledge, resources, patience, and support. I can confidently say that I've grown a ton as a result of his mentorship and I cannot recommend him enough for anybody looking for a mentor who's patient, encouraging, and also willing to push you to become a better designer. Thank you so much for everything, Mike!”

“I had the opportunity to be mentored by Michael Stulberg. It was such a pleasure to be mentored by him and to know him also as a person. Not only was he highly informative and helpful, but a joy to work with. He made my learning experience easy, fun and gave excellent feedback for where I needed to improve. If I take another course from Designlab, I would request him as my mentor again.”

“Mike was a great mentor, easy going and very helpful. I was very new to the world of ux and ui design and Mike was patient and helped me out with any questions I had. I was nervous starting out and had questions about the course I was doing, ux academy and the job in general. Mike was very good at explaining things to me and answered all my questions and gave extra information when needed.”

“Michael was an amazing mentor. He was always giving me honest feedback and support in each of the projects and through iterations. I really appreciated that he was always pushing me to think ahead and understand why certain things are done so that the product is accessible and useful for the user. He really pushed me out of my comfort zone, just as I needed so that I could learn well and always push myself for better and user-friendly designs. I came into UX Foundations not knowing anything about design and not knowing if I could do it, now I leave feeling much more confident in the skills that I have gained through the projects and through my mentoring sessions with Michael.”

“I had the honor to take the mentorship from Mike through Designlab’s ‘UX Academy’. Mike is a fantastic mentor, researcher, and designer. He is very experienced, knowledgeable, and patient. He can always provide me with spot-on feedback, constructive comments, prompt support as well as warm encouragement to each of my assignments/projects. With Mike’s guidance and help, I’ve learned a lot not only about UX research/design as a discipline but about what’s happening in this industry. Thanks to Mike as an experienced practitioner, wise thinker, and excellent designer, I hope to continue my professional relationship with him. I would definitely recommend him!”

“I had the privilege of having Mike as my mentor during my studies at UX Academy through DesignLab. Throughout the mentorship it was clear that Mike was fully invested in my growth as a designer. During the course of my studies Mike provided guidance through bi-weekly 1:1 calls and written constructive comments on all work submitted. He continuously challenged me to consider the problem at hand alongside multiple possible solutions through engaging in thought-provoking dialogue and providing actionable feedback - always communicated clearly and respectfully. Mike's powerful intellect coupled with his ability to truly empathize makes him an exceptional mentor and designer. I look forward to continuing my professional relationship with Mike and will surely reach out to him whenever I am looking for expert feedback on a project.”
