I work for a software house as their UI Designer and I could start implementing what I had learned as the course progressed. This course taught me a lot; I was pleasantly surprised by how much content audits could simplify my day to day tasks. User testing was also a new frontier for me.

I’m currently busy with a very big project to retain one of our biggest clients; I’ve been able to apply what I’ve learned on this course and build the most stunning and functional UX design for the client’s website. I now have the confidence to build my own website.
