Mariia Yushchuk

UI/UX Design Junior Teacher and Course 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.

Students say:

For many years I`ve been working for the police. So, this is my first experience with this type of education. I'm grateful for changes in my life. Now I’m a web-designer.

Trubnikova Kristina, Mariupol

The lessons were natural, clear and constructive. There was a lot of practice. And then was a meeting with employers and I was very proud of my project presentation.

Kucher Natalia, Kramatorsk

Everything I learned was useful in my job. Since the very beginning of the courses, I’ve made nearly 20 websites layouts. I was retouching photos, making vector illustrations, logos. Also, there are great parties in the Academy. I still communicate with my groupmates. And here I found my love.

Aristarkhova Ekaterina, Poltava, Designer AIT Inc

After graduation, I took part in design competitions. In Betlab I was among the three best juniors. In Cogniance I’ve become one of the five best creative juniors in the Design Challenge 2018 mobile app development competition.

Talan Viktoriya, Kyiv

I knew that It's hard. But our awesome teacher helped us to survive with a smile. It was love from the first lesson and an unforgettable relationship for all 4 months. The knowledge I got was crucial for my job. I become more self-confident and saw a field with endless development open up for me.
