I dont really agree with copying and adding that to your portfolio, maybe for practice but not ideal adding a project you've copied directly...

Since your tutorial has an emphasis on "No BS" I'll take the same approach to this comment. There is not a single video in the course where you do not look at other peoples work and implement an idea from yourself. You taught almost no fundamentals of UI design / how to use figma. I spent 30 minutes playing with the tools on my own and learned more in that time than your entire 2 hour course. Please reconsider updating the content to be original.

Great class to learn how to use the programs and resources. Not a fan of copying work and passing it off as your own. I felt like throughout the class that is encouraged. I would be mindful of that as a creative because it's not teaching you how to create based on your own ideas but off the back of others.

This is the first course where I felt that I have learnt something and will be able to start building a portfolio for my job. Must course for a person who's looking for some peaceful and clear understanding of UI design

Much of the content of the course felt like a cash grab. "Here's how you copy other people and speedrun your way upwards." I didn't leave with much of an appreciation for Figma, as it seemed to be a means to an end. Rather than something you genuinely enjoy.

Michael, I believe you put all of your great efforts and experience in a very concise and enjoyable way in the form of this course. Really enjoyed this. One of the best course I want to recommend every new / naive / beginner UI or Digital designer. Regards Ali Sultan

Michael instructs in a very easy and clear understanding way ! He certainly helps non-design background students to know what are the essential design principles. In addition, he can make people use Figma right after the class. highly-recommend to people who doesn't know UI or never use Figma before. You will learn it right away.

Surely, the trainer knows his ABCs as he is able to easily clone works of other designers but in my view, the trainee is presented only with the tip of an iceberg as far as the functionality of Figma is concerned. It's nice to know how masking works, how to make colour gradients, and that holding Shift while resizing an image will keep its proportions, but still, there is more to that that could be explained. However, the most disturbing/off-putting parts of the course were: a) When the trainer keeps on reminding us that we will be able to make "six-figure salary" if we b) copy works of other designers. I strongly hoped that what the trainer had on his mind was getting inspiration from other, more experienced designers, but no. As far as I understand that copying designs is a great way of learning/improving one's skills, doing the same in commercial projects brushes extremely close against plagiarism. Furthermore, the concept of a person who has two-months experience in the field and steals other people's works to pretend s/he has been in the business for two years also appears unethical to me. But hey, six-figure salary.

I am Prakash having 9 experience in web design. I use photoshop for design any template.Here, I know about figma and really very happy to see this type of tool to desin quick and fast with tremendous effect. Even the link shared by you like dribbble, Behance is awesome. The most important thing is content and language which one could understand very easily. I hope we will get your guidance i future too. I am really very thankful to you.

It's good as a starter course for design. It gives you an overall picture of basic Figma tools and interface with a guide of the design steps/process along with some panorama about the top websites in the industry. Worth the time!

this course was really good, although the instructor is teaching Figma, i done this using Adobe XD and it is similar. I have no design experiance or artistic talent... but this course has given me a huge confidence boost and belief i can do it. Content delivered well and not too long winded. Going to check and see if the instructor has any other courses.
