PROBLEM

Overwhelmed? Wondering if learning UX will be worth it?

Not happy with your current career? Want a stable UX job? This program and community was made for people who experience any of the following:

You’re stuck on how to begin your UX journey
You watched videos, read books, and you’re overwhelmed. There’s too much info!
You’re learning UX, but you're unsure if you’re doing it right
You started to learn UX but you struggle to apply the theory confidently.
You already learned UX, but you’re struggling to land a job
You have a portfolio, sent job applications, but you aren’t getting callbacks.

PROBLEM

UX is hard. It's easy to run into the same blockers.

Whether you dream of working remotely in a well-paid tech job or gaining the skills to create cutting-edge products, at least one of these are in your way:

Common blockers
1. Not enough time
2. Too much information
3. Feeling overwhelmed
4. No guidance/mentors
5. Lack of confidence
6. No accountability
7. Hard to stand out
8. Can't find a job

The structure to succeed
Maybe you don’t know how to get started with UX, or you don’t know if you’re doing it right, or you went to a bootcamp or university program and your portfolio looks like everyone else’s.

UX/UI Expert is for you.

With the right structure, you’ll stop the guesswork, crush your UX goals, and standout for good.
PROBLEM

Creating UX projects that hiring managers gloss over?

The market is saturated with bad case studies and portfolios. Stop working on generic projects that won’t land you a UX job.

Pre-made case studies are bad
Bootcamps and universities make you create projects that are already planned out. These make you look like everyone else. Hiring managers won’t take you seriously.
Stop solving the wrong problems
Many bootcamps teach how to solve generic problems, but you don’t even know if you’re solving the right problem.
A certificate won’t get you a job
To get a job, your case studies need to showcase critical thinking skills. Templates will only hurt your chances.
WHY LEARN WITH US

We’ll teach you what most bootcamps don’t. Be ready to stand out!

Want a quality UX education without spending thousands of dollars? Have a full-time job and want flexibility to learn when you have time? Say hello to UX/UI Expert!

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 DIY or PRO plan?

Plus icon

Considering UX/UI Expert DIY? This option caters to those aiming to enhance their skillset with UX/UI capabilities. It's tailored for freelancers and business owners who intend to bolster their existing expertise without necessarily shifting to a UX-focused path.

If your goal is to emerge as an exceptional UX designer and secure your dream role, then UX/UI Expert PRO is the perfect fit. Geared explicitly towards those looking to transition into the world of UX design, this program is designed to help you excel and succeed in your career transformation.

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

Plus icon

Mastering UX requires an investment of time. How much time, you ask? Find the answer in the FAQ section right below this.

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.

Completing the DIY plan will take you:

  • 3-6 months if you have a full-time job + you’re a parent
  • 2-4 months if you have a full-time job
  • 2-3 months if you have a part-time job or you’re unemployed


Completing the PRO plan 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 individuals 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.

It's important to recognize that building a robust skillset requires dedication and effort.

If you don't invest the time and commitment, the chances of positioning yourself for a successful transition into a UX job will be significantly diminished. The choice lies with you, determining the outcome you ultimately seek.

More FAQs

Is UX right for me?

Plus icon

Creatives are incredibly well-positioned to become top-performing UX designers.

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 Creator Protection guarantee.

We're so confident you'll love the program that you can request a refund at any time during the first 365 days of the enrollment date.

If in those 365 days, you finished the program and you’re not feeling confident in your UX skills, you can request to get a full refund plus an extra $200 on us.

See the guarantee details

Can my employer pay for the program?

Plus icon

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

And, if you need extra help convincing them to pay, you get to choose the projects you work on during our program. That means you could work on a company project starting day one.

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. A bit like Netflix or Spotify! 😉

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

Plus icon

We host our live events twice a month at 9-11AM 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

You’ll come out of this program with best-in-class UX case studies that you can wholly call your own. You’ll work on the projects that genuinely interest you and not pre-canned projects.

You’ll also have a portfolio that stands out from the crowd. So many portfolios out there look the same. In that sea of sameness, you’ll be able to attract the attention of hiring managers and recruiters successfully.

Finally, you’ll have all the artifacts necessary to start applying right away: resume, cover letter, socials, and the strategies to get seen by employers.

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

Plus icon

We’ve designed UX/UI Expert to be the best of both worlds. It’s the speed of a bootcamp with the depth of a university program.

Bootcamps tend to glance over subjects that are critical to becoming a true UX designer. For example, while most of them teach you UI theory, it’s so basic that it’s not actionable enough.

On the other hand, university programs can be theory-heavy and less focused on applying design in the real-world. It’s common for these programs to teach you concepts that you put into practice many months later… once you’ve forgotten most of it.

With UX/UI Expert, we’re taking a completely different approach.

You work on case study subjects that you care about instead of giving you pre-made case studies. We teach you in-depth concepts using a learn-by-doing teaching style. Rapidly applying what you just learned is one of the best ways to understand and internalize concepts.
