The great complete course. I had had lots of fun with it. The app is not fancy but fancy are just mockups that don't do anything, and Your final UI prototype does lots of. Hope to buy another course of yours maybe Illustrator who knows :) Best wishes from Poland

I really enjoyed this course and got a lot of it. Chris is a great instructor and he always gave me helpful feed backs and responded quickly to my question.I love that you build a real project for your portfolio. Thank you, Chris1000000% recommended

This is one of the best courses concerning UI/UX design and it even teaches you more on how to handle clients and relate with developers.. It is very rich and endowed. Please make sure you have knowledge of photoshop, Cos you'll be designing in photoshop before going indepth in Adobe xd.. It is all worth it!.. Thanks Chris for pouring your heart during the lecture.. I really had a nice time learning.. And I'm ready to create amazing apps and prototypes and export them in zeplin and in xd to developers. Kind regard, Tenzy.

It's really worth taking this course. This course prepares you to become a better Mobile App Designer. It covers every important aspects regarding the UI/UX and Prototyping. It also covers all the details about app designing in Photoshop, Adobe XD and Zeplin. I would highly recommend this course to everyone who wish to learn Mobile App Designing and make a career in it. Looking forward to more courses on such topics in the future. Thanks Chris for your valuable information and support!

Saying its a great course its like saying nothing!! There is no doubt that Chris made huge job!! I had been looking for this kind of course for a long time and was confused in how to succeed without any definite source!!Thank so much!

This course is all-inclusive, though times have changed and all the effort in Photoshop isn't needed anymore (XD is the industry standard), it sharpened my photoshop skills too.Thanks for the great course.

Amazing course! Really valuable information, without unnecessary conversations, just pure knowledge and priceless experience! Highly recommended for graphic or web designers that want to switch to app designing :)

Good course! I learn a lot about design and good practices, I recommend for any expert or beginner.

After taking this course am now feels confident working as a UI/UX Designer. I came across so many good examples during this course. My skills of using XD, Zeplin, Sketch, and Photoshop is now improved.Chris...!!, Thank you very much for designing this course with such a nice examples.

First of all, Chris hired a special person to do the voiceover, and that's an instant +1000 to his karma! It's easy to follow, pleasant to listen to. (I personally still had to make it 1.25-1.5 times faster, but online-courses are always too slow for me)I loved the practical advice! Lots of hints, straight t the point.Minuses: I think, there is a bit too much Photoshop in terms of conversion to XD at the end. In order to make things look the way they do we needed to spend quite some time and efffort in PS, but then we had to re-build it in XD. And if it was planned in XD from the very beginning, the workflow would be different. So at the end it feel like additional unnecessary work.BUT! This work is unnecessary for this exact project. As to our learning process, I'd say it makes sense. Chris wanted us to see different approaches and solutions for the same problem. I personally got stuck at the PS part (motivation-wise), so that's why I'd say it's a minus for me. But at least now I know how I would like to work. And if I'm asked to do things in PS, I also know how.

This is the best course out there for mobile design. As usual Chris doesn't cut any corners, so you will go from a beginner to pro after you are done. I definitely recommend this course to anyone who want to get the full mobile design experience.Thanks Chris for creating this course.

It's a very good course as it provides you knowledge of multiple softwares and everything has been explained in full detail...I surely recommend this course to every app designer out there.
