“Jason was instrumental in my transformation from graphic designer/art director to User Experience Designer. He was able to push me into new ways of thinking and coached me in the “blocking and tackling” of what designing for the user means.
He always asks great questions which will get you to view problems (and solutions) in new ways. And when those solutions don’t hold water, he’ll gently but directly get you back on track in your design journey.”
“As a mentor, Jason was a major supporter and critic of my school, work, and personal projects. His feedback encouraged me to think outside of the box and helped me create solutions that made me stand out amongst my peers in the competitive design industry. He helped me navigate the job market by developing my event networking, interview skills, and negotiation tactics. He helped me write my first proposal as well as my first contract.”
My name is Jason Early and I have been a designer and mentor for over two decades.
I’ve spent the past several years packaging my experience into lessons that have helped students in their jobs at Apple, Pixar, Spotify, Google, Facebook, and many other excellent organizations.
Having lead design programs at education startups (Bloc and General Assembly), and working directly with numerous businesses as a lead designer, I understand the complex challenges that designers face. I launched this training site borrowing the best from those experiences and to provide actionable steps to improve your skills.
These training workshops and courses are the most practical form of design education. Direct from a veteran design professional.
