UI/UX Design from scratch Author

I teach students to argue for their decisions. I make them to gather good examples and teach them to present their works. The important part in learning is basic knowledge about business goals: how do they influence a design, why do you need to lean on goals when choosing your idea. When I have free time, I listen to rock operas, play poker, pass quests and take photos.

Alina Rakhimova

Design Teacher

I am a Senior UI/UX Designer with over 7 years of experience. I worked for Eletrolux, Agromat, and Jacob Delafon. Design goes beyond just being work for me. It is a worldview. I enjoy the fact that my profession is innovative, it is always dynamic and moving forward. I always keep up with UI trends and UX processes for web apps and sites.I would like to help novice designers to fully delve into the design process and I would do my best to take them to the next level in four months. My three best students will get my assistance in building a portfolio and writing a CV. Honesty, transparency, and right feedback are key in teaching.

Design Teacher

I have been working as a freelancer since 2008. It’s convenient – I can do my own tasks anytime. I work with huge and small companies, start-ups, design studies, advertising agencies. While teaching I like to feel a connection with the audience. I ask questions, show examples. I don’t like giving only dry information.

The course passed easily and free of hassle. The teacher always supported us and answered any questions we had, even those which weren't really planned for the course. Our Regional Coordinator cheered us up and never allowed us to give up. I would definitely recommend Beetroot Academy to my friends and acquaintances.
