PROBLEM

Harsh reality: Most designers are undervalued & underpaid

Businesses and clients dismiss your worth, leaving you fighting every day just to keep the lights on.

"Can you make just one more tiny tweak? It's almost perfect, but it needs more... pizzazz."
"Why don't you leave the decisions to us and focus on making the designs look pretty?"
"I know you put a lot of effort into this, but it’s really not what we were looking for at all."
"I need this completely redone by tomorrow morning, no excuses."
"Can you make the logo bigger? It needs to be the first thing people see."
"I know it's last minute, but can you completely change the color scheme by end of day?"
"I’m not sure what’s wrong, but it just doesn’t feel right—can you make it pop more?"
"I need this design to be fresh, and unique, but also like our competitor's campaign."
"While you're at it, can you also add a few new pages and tweak the layout?"
"We appreciate your work, but we don't have room in the budget for a promotion."
"Why pay you more when we can get the same work done overseas for half the price?"
"We can hire a fresh grad who will do the same work for a fraction of your rate."
"We need you to deliver top-notch work, but remember, we have a tight budget."
"Why should we pay your rates when we can get similar designs on Fiverr for much less?"
"With AI creating visuals for free, why should we keep paying you for designs?"

Testimonials sticker
Going with UX/UI Expert instead of a bootcamp was a game-changer for me. I built really unique case studies that I’m super proud of. Best decision ever!
UX/UI Expert changed my life! It helped me build my UX confidence and I started a design agency with another student I met in the program!
I wish I would have known about UX/UI Expert before choosing Springboard. It's so much better than what I've experienced in Springboard or anywhere else. I'm a bit blown away.
UI/UX Expert gives me more than just the structured learning that I need; it also provides personalized mentorship by two experts who are just a chat away.

One of the things I love the most about this program besides the mentorship aspect is the tight community. The monthly meetings are so eye opening, we get the chance to ask questions, and share experiences of our journey.

My favorite thing about UX/UI Expert is the personalized experience. You not only learn the foundation of UX but Colton and Ludovic guide you to complete a case study of YOUR choosing. They do an excellent job catering to everyone’s needs!

Christopher - UX/UI Expert student
Christopher B.

As a graphic designer, the biggest reason I am interested in a UX career is to take some of the subjectivity out of my design work. It’s incredibly helpful to have Colton and Ludovic along for the ride. They make it fun and easy.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What the FAQ?!

Any questions on your mind? Check out our FAQ or directly reach out to us. We’d be happy to help!

Buying guide

Should I get a monthly, quarterly, or yearly plan?

Plus icon

This entirely depends on you, your goals, and how much time you can dedicate. Mastering UX requires an investment of time.

To get an idea of how much time it takes to complete the program, look at the question below this one.

How long does it take to complete the program?

Plus icon

UX/UI Expert is a self-paced program.

You can choose to go as slow or fast as you want!

If you're just starting out, it will take longer than someone who has already gone through a bootcamp or university program.

If your goal is to transition to UX, it will take you:

  • ~12 months if you have a full-time job + you’re a parent
  • ~ 8 months if you have a full-time job
  • ~ 6 months is you have a part-time job or you're unemployed

There's a ton of information about UX online. Why should I join this program?

Plus icon

Finding your way into a UX job can feel like a you’re walking blindfolded through a crowded room.


For aspiring UX designers, the internet can be a mixed bag of advice. It's like trying to choose the best path when the signs are all pointing different ways—confusing!

And if you're learning solo, it's easy to feel like you're flying blind without a roadmap, feedback, or someone to turn to for advice. Questions like “Am I nailing this?” or “Could I do better?” are totally normal. We get it—the UX world can seem like a maze, especially with the competition out there.

That's why we came up with UX/UI Expert. It's here to put an end to the wild goose chase from one learning source to another. Our program is like a trusted friend, giving you the confidence and guidance you need to navigate the exciting journey into the world of UX.

I’m already enrolled in a bootcamp. Will this program help me?

Plus icon

Many of our students have previously enrolled in well-known bootcamps. They’ve been pleasantly surprised by the distinct and profound impact of our program. In fact, a number of them have even made the decision to transition away from their bootcamp experiences—that's a testament to the value they've found here.

So, absolutely! We hold a strong belief that the UX/UI Expert program will empower you to differentiate yourself and help you build the skills necessary to land your dream UX job.

I already learned UX but struggle to land a job. Is this program for me?

Plus icon

We're genuinely sorry to learn that your prior bootcamp or university experience didn't pave the way for your success as you had hoped.

We understand the situation all too well. The field of UX sees a flood of applicants, and while many institutions teach the principles of UX, they often fall short on guiding you toward standing out in the crowd.

In the bustling world of UX, where competition is fierce, securing a job requires more than just basic knowledge. It demands a strategic approach—a deep grasp of UX methodologies and a portfolio that radiates a unique personal brand. Surprisingly, these crucial aspects often remain overlooked by many bootcamps and universities.

This is where our program shines. We firmly believe in its potential to make a difference in your journey, even if you've previously attended a renowned bootcamp or university. Our approach is rooted in empowering you with the strategies and insights that truly set you apart in the UX market.

Who is this UX/UI Expert NOT for?

Plus icon

UX/UI Expert isn't a fit for everyone.

It's NOT designed for those who tend to procrastinate and hesitate to take decisive action. It's also not the right fit for individuals who passively watch videos without putting in the necessary effort.

We're dedicated to working with designers who are committed to their growth and career enhancement. Our program is tailored to those who are proactive, ready to invest time and energy into themselves, and are determined to drive positive change in their career.

Apprenticeship FAQ

What’s Tech Fleet?

Plus icon

Tech Fleet's a nonprofit that helps you gain real world experience no matter who you are.
You can build team experience working on Tech Fleet teams solving problems with clients. The community works with other nonprofit clients and builds open source software for the public good.

Tech Fleet is a proving ground for the real world. Join project teams to practice industry skills with your peers with support from the community.

Am I eligible for an apprenticeship? What's the cost? Is it free?!

Plus icon

ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible for a guaranteed apprenticeship, you must:

  • Have been enrolled in UX/UI Expert for at least 3 months
  • Have completed 1 end-to-end case study as part of this program
  • Attended our 30-minute expert review


COST: If accepted, you can choose to secure your apprenticeship for $250. We don't take a commission; all funds go directly to Tech Fleet'.

P.S. Tech Fleet is a non-profit organization. The $250 helps them continue offering apprenticeships for aspiring designers.


ISN’T IT FREE? Wait, but Tech Fleet’s website says: “What does it cost to train in Tech Fleet? Today it doesn't cost anything! You'll pay it forward by volunteering time to help peers in the community. We're working on a way to sustain growth through paid dues in the future.”

So why do I have to pay $250 to get an apprenticeship?

We've partnered with Tech Fleet to give our students a guaranteed apprenticeship. Usually, people in the Tech Fleet community take 2-4 months before they get on an apprenticeship, and a lot are still waiting to get one.

Thanks to our partnership with them, they guarantee the apprenticeship so you don't have to apply and wait to hear back. In a nutshell, the $250 fee guarantees and fast-tracks your apprenticeship!

If I sign up for an apprenticeship, what should I expect?

Plus icon

Typically, it’ll take ~4 weeks after you apply before the project kicks off.

In the meantime, you can get involved in the Tech Fleet Community! You’re encouraged to read the user guide, become an observer, and watch the onboarding videos before their apprenticeship begins.

A couple weeks before the project kicks off, the leads and apprentices will get together to start onboarding to the project and setting up their own working schedules. The project management team takes care of facilitating this.

More FAQs

Is UX right for me?

Plus icon

Feeling stuck in your design career? Whether you want to augment your design career, transition to UX, or start your own business, UX can help you level up. Designers who join our UX/UI Expert program are tired of feeling stuck, undervalued and underpaid. They’re ready to transform their careers and find the fulfillment they deserve.

But, UX isn’t for everyone. To find out if it’s right for you, try our free UX design course and see what you think!

What’s the refund policy?

Plus icon

With UX/UI Expert, your investment is covered with our Level up guarantee.

Read the full guarantee details.

Can my employer pay for the program?

Plus icon

Absolutely! Many employers are willing to invest in your continued education.

Do I have access to the materials once my subscription expires?

Plus icon

Once your subscription comes to an end, you'll maintain access to the kits and workbooks you've downloaded. However, access to the community, live events, video content, and additional resources will no longer be available—just like Netflix!

What are the live events like? At what time are they?

Plus icon

We host a morning and evening call every other Thursday (4 calls a month). The first call is at 10-11am PST and the second is the same day from 4-5pm PST. They are designed to help you on your UX projects and take your skills to the next level. Ask us questions, get unblocked, and keep crushing your UX goals.

What will I come out with at this end of the program?

Plus icon

As a UX/UI Expert student, you'll graduate with a data-driven mindset, enabling you to back your designs with solid data, earn trust, and minimize guesswork. You'll master proven processes to go from problem to solution, ensuring you earn a spot at the decision-making table. Plus, you'll create best-in-class UX case studies that you can proudly claim as your own. You'll work on projects that genuinely interest you, avoiding generic, cookie-cutter assignments.

You'll build a portfolio that stands out in a sea of sameness, catching the eye of hiring managers and recruiters. More importantly, you'll learn to influence decisions and use advanced techniques to propel your career, like design communication, storytelling, and outreach strategies. Finally, you'll have all the necessary artifacts—resume, cover letter, social profiles—and the strategies to get noticed by employers.

How is UX/UI Expert different from bootcamps or universities?

Plus icon

We've crafted UX/UI Expert to give you the best of both worlds—the speed of a bootcamp with the depth of a university program. Traditional bootcamps often skim over crucial subjects needed to become a true UX designer, leaving you with basic UI theory that's hard to apply. On the flip side, university programs can be heavy on theory and slow to integrate real-world applications, making you forget much of what you learned by the time you need to use it.

With UX/UI Expert, we take a different approach. You’ll work on case studies that genuinely interest you, not on generic, pre-made ones. Our learn-by-doing style means you’ll quickly apply what you learn, helping you grasp and internalize concepts faster. This hands-on method is one of the best ways to truly understand and remember new skills.
