By the end of this course, you'll be able to:
  • Implement strategic problem-solving: Solve user problems with the help of the Double Diamond design model.
  • Sharpen your business mindset: Shift your perspective and see bigger-picture goals with strategic thinking challenges.
  • Dive deep into intensive user research: Learn how to plan and execute a user research strategy that will uncover crucial user insights.
  • Implement smarter and more efficient workflows: Get the most out of your insights by organizing your notes and developing ideas quickly.
  • Build high-level communication skills: Use what you learn from user interviews and research methods to better communicate and collaborate with stakeholders.

Reflecting on my journey from enrolling in the Masterclass(es) to my current position, the most impactful element has been the direct application of the learnings in my recent projects at Amazon. Integrating the insights gained from the course into two significant projects yielded outstanding results, significantly influencing both my career and personal growth. This hands-on experience not only enhanced my proficiency in implementing UX strategies but also bolstered my confidence in guiding, coaching, mentoring, and leading design teams. The practical application of the Masterclass teachings has been a transformative factor, shaping my capabilities and setting the stage for my future plans to offer UX and Design freelancing services to clients. The ability to seamlessly translate theoretical knowledge into tangible, successful outcomes has been the cornerstone of my career and personal growth trajectory.

Unlocking new ways of solving problems! As I was struggling to find a high-level research framework for my day-to-day design work, I was able to fill many of the knowledge gaps because I took this course. It provides a well-structured research process that cuts out the "guesswork" that I'm adopting in my projects. Mizko covers his reasoning for every decision he took from start to end. Real-life examples and practical solutions throughout the course were incredibly helpful. Right now, I'm more confident than ever with my design decisions, presenting meaningful briefs to stakeholders, and so on. Don't let the price tag scare you! It will far exceed the value of what you will pay for, that's a guarantee!

Having done a UX bootcamp before where I learned about similar things, I am very happy I took this course because it was able to fill many of the knowledge gaps I still had after completing the boot camp. This course provides a great research framework which I will be adopting moving forward, and Mizko provides sound reasoning for every decision he makes as he covers everything from beginning to end. Don't let the price tag scare you. What you will walk away with after completing it will far exceed the value of what you paid.

From the very beginning, this Masterclass took me on an immersive journey through the world of Figma, covering everything from the basics to the most advanced techniques. What really stands out to me is how it has transformed my approach to design, especially when it comes to auto-layout and components. The newfound knowledge and expertise in these areas have given me a whole new level of confidence in my design work. One of the highlights of this course was diving deep into the creation of a Design System. The process of building a Design System from scratch not only solidified my UI skills but also gave me the confidence to tackle more complex UI challenges.

As I reflect on my journey from enrolling in the Practical User Research & Strategy Masterclass to where I am now, I realize that the most impactful thing I gained was a deeper understanding of the design process and how to approach it strategically. Prior to taking these courses, I was focused on creating visually appealing products without much consideration for the end-user's goals and sometimes misaligned with the business objectives. However, learning about user research, strategy, and design thinking has allowed me to approach each project with a more holistic perspective. By applying these techniques, my designs have become more effective, resulting in more satisfied clients and successful projects. Overall, these courses have made me a more strategic and thoughtful designer.

I have been a software engineer for more than 15 years and sometimes I worked with UX designers and sometimes I managed them such as CPO. I did think that I understand how they work but I just realized that I apparently did not. This course helped me how they work and how they should work. The way Mizko showed in this course reminded me of the way disciplined engineers work. I think this is the course for UX designers to leverage their performance, but also client engineers would take this too for better coordination with designers. Thanks for this great course.

I just want to give a big shout out and a huge thank you to the Designership and the amazing courses that they've been able to produce. I've taken the Figure Masterclass and the product strategy and research course, and they have totally changed the way that I approach my design process.The Practical User Research & Strategy Masterclass takes you from understanding how to solve problems, why it's important, why research is important. He goes through the tools. I mean, anything and everything you would ever think of about how to create a good product strategy is there. I love that the course was like very actionable. I've actually been using it for my own tech startups and I have been able to win a couple thousand dollars from different business competitions here in Utah, and we don't even have a product yet. It's just from showing them the idea and the research that we've done following the exact format from the course.

I really enjoyed learning from real-world case scenarios and from an experienced designer. It's the kind of stuff you don't get taught on bootcamp. I've learned small details that take years of experience in design to learn. It was almost like learning from an expert in the industry. (Plus, it was very fun to follow!) There was not a single specific moment. Throughout the whole course, I noticed how I was learning and becoming a lot more confident using Figma and already thinking of how I could apply this knowledge to my own personal design projects or future client work. I feel a lot more confident going into my first full-time junior design position, and maybe even try to freelance on the side.

Having known and used Figma for a while, I still learn a lot from this course. First, Mizko explains responsive design, Figma features, and corresponding CSS properties, as well as how to deliver developers’ handoff. His way of explaining Figma features is logical, succinct, and makes a lot of sense—I was left with no confusion. The section on animation and prototypes is golden! Explanations of transition types usually found in an After Effects class are delivered with grace by Mizko. An awesome class overall!

This is the best course to learn all about Figma, UI and project management! (As we designers know, it can get really messy due to the iterations in our projects). I highly recommend anyone who's looking to learn all about Figma to check Michael's YouTube channel to get the basics, and then jump right into the Masterclass. The Masterclass is a value bomb and definitely worth it as it's going to save you so much time when you are designing. I'm halfway through the course and before even finishing it, I can surely suggest this to anyone looking to master Figma and speed up your workflow! 💯 Thank you Micheal, for making such a great course! 🙌🏼

If you're someone who wants to learn, develop and truly master your design skills in Figma and UX/UI, then this course is the real deal. It's designed and structured to take you through a real world project and design process that you'll also get to apply throughout this course, enhancing what you learn in a practical way by actually doing it. what's makes it even sweeter is having access to a great community of designers to connect with and resources available which is a huge bonus to your learning. If you're self-taught, new to UI design or Figma like myself, this will cut down your learning curve significantly. Mizko's free YouTube content combined with this course will make you a pro in UI design and Figma in no time. Mastering design systems and auto-layout to create responsive designs is a game changer! You'll quickly see the value once you start and your level of confidence and understanding in the design process would've reached new heights by the time of completion. 100% recommend investing in this course. It was invaluable. Thank you Michael!

I just want to give a big shout out and a huge thank you to the Designership and the amazing courses that they've been able to produce. I've taken the Figure Masterclass and the product strategy and research course, and they have totally changed the way that I approach my design process.The Practical User Research & Strategy Masterclass takes you from understanding how to solve problems, why it's important, why research is important. He goes through the tools. I mean, anything and everything you would ever think of about how to create a good product strategy is there. I love that the course was like very actionable. I've actually been using it for my own tech startups and I have been able to win a couple thousand dollars from different business competitions here in Utah, and we don't even have a product yet. It's just from showing them the idea and the research that we've done following the exact format from the course.

I am a self-taught UX Designer and used to heavily rely on Instagram carousels, YouTube, and blog posts for growing my knowledge. I would follow Mizko's IG and had great expectations of this course. True to my expectations, I learned what I wanted to and more! This course was an eye-opener when it comes to good design practices, tips, tricks, and efficient collaboration/work. Essentially the way I approach UI design has changed for the better. I am amazed at the amount of effort and attention to detail that went into this course and commend Mizko for that. The course is 'designed' to not just theoretically teach us concepts but also to enable us with lifelong practices. Last but not least, the way Mizko delivers lessons is similar to how a friend is speaking with you -- always fun, never a snoozefest (with a sprinkle of humor). Overall, this course was exactly what I needed for building my skillset.

I knew I’d learn a lot from this course when I joined- but man, I was blown away. I learned so much about configuring effective and efficient auto layouts, not to mention a streamlined process into turning those auto layouts into responsive pages. I learned how to efficiently create and organize a design system for multiple projects. The best part is that the whole curriculum is based off of a real project, so you are shown how and why he makes the choices he does throughout the entire process.

From the very beginning, this Masterclass took me on an immersive journey through the world of Figma, covering everything from the basics to the most advanced techniques. What really stands out to me is how it has transformed my approach to design, especially when it comes to auto-layout and components. The newfound knowledge and expertise in these areas have given me a whole new level of confidence in my design work.

As I reflect on my journey from enrolling in the Practical User Research & Strategy Masterclass to where I am now, I realize that the most impactful thing I gained was a deeper understanding of the design process and how to approach it strategically. Prior to taking these courses, I was focused on creating visually appealing products without much consideration for the end-user's goals and sometimes misaligned with the business objectives. However, learning about user research, strategy, and design thinking has allowed me to approach each project with a more holistic perspective. By applying these techniques, my designs have become more effective, resulting in more satisfied clients and successful projects. Overall, these courses have made me a more strategic and thoughtful designer.
