In our 18+ years of combined UX expertise, we’ve designed solutions for millions of people around the world.

We’ve been approached by dozens and dozens of designers wondering how we broke our way into UX.
And from these conversations and from our own experiences, we've learned that UX education has failed many aspiring UXers.

Here's why:

UX education is expensive, impersonal, and inconsistent

Designers shouldn’t have to wonder how many years it’ll take to repay their student debt. Or if their mentor will care and support them.

$15k-$100k is a massive hurdle for people
Being priced out is a reason why people stop pursing a path that they’d otherwise love to take.
Instructors don’t know who you are
When institutions are too large, instructors can’t know their students’ names, challenges, etc.
Teacher was never in the industry
We've talked to so many students who have had instructors who NEVER even worked in UX.
Large class sizes are super impersonal
To support dozens of students, institutions make choices that render the education impersonal.
Unpersonalized, general education
Designers have specifics needs and challenges. You can’t teach a topic the same way to everyone.
Learn the theory, not what's practical
Many institutions teach an idealized UX process that doesn't reflect how it's conducted in the real world.
Yup, mass education is impersonal and can be really costly.

But that’s not all...

Unfortunately, the portfolios these students create make it really hard for them to get their first UX job.

Hundreds of lookalike portfolios flood the UX market every year.

Too many bootcamp and university students create cookie-cutter portfolios that look like checklists.

Pre-canned group projects
Pre-canned projects are fine for learning purposes, but they’re not meant for building a portfolio.
Students are taught “linear UX”
Because many schools provide students with a template for their case studies, everyone looks alike.
Not diving into the problem enough
A lot of bootcamps just teach how to solve the problems. But not how to know what problem to solve.
Portfolios are too rigid and cookie-cutter
They’re taught to apply a rigid process and have a hard time thinking outside the box.
Inability to explain the WHY behind decisions
Many portfolios fail because of the students inability to express the why behind their design decisions.
Bad mentors equal bad outcomes
There are many stories of students going to bootcamps that cost $15,000+ who got a bad mentors.
That’s the harsh truth.
