I’m Julia, a senior product designer with 12 years of experience
I’ve started designing websites in 2003 and made all mistakes out there 😅. I wish I had an experienced designer by my side help me avoid them.
I worked as a front-end developer and switched to UX design in 2012. I know how hard it is to change careers, too.
Currently, I work as a senior product designer, and specialize in UI and Design Systems. My design passion is typography and I dedicated the biggest lesson to it in the course.
I love helping other designers grow, and this course is based on my experience and made to speed up your growth.

I really enjoyed super packed information in a short amount of time and I learned something new with the example of poster design and see it organically evolving with every example you showed. I think I am going to practice it a bit to get my hands on it. Also, I noticed everything you were talking about was also implemented in your presentation in the video. The video itself has a good visual design too.

Great overview of principals and rules. Enough information to understand but the teacher also encourages you to go out and learn these in-depth as well as practice!

This course is very well done, the lessons are prepared and organized with care and the explanations are clear. It is a very nice walk through all elements of good design, I would highly recommend it for beginners and as a refresher of key concepts. Thank you Julia for the course!!! :)
