What We're Building

Designlab is an online platform for expert-driven creative education. Students learn design skills through online courses with hands-on projects, live 1-on-1 mentorship from top designers, and community interaction.

We offer 2 types of courses: 1) 4-week part-time courses helping students learn basic design skills (topics like Interaction Design, UX Research, UI Design, etc.), and 2) an intensive 3 or 6-month course called UX Academy that trains students for full-time UX design roles.

As we scale, we plan to 3-5x our lineup of short courses, add more advanced "bootcamp"-style courses, roll out standalone subscription mentorship products, and release new content types like expert-created video workshops. We're building a robust ecosystem of rigorous content to help people continually level up skills throughout their careers.

As we grow, we can partner with companies in multiple ways: recruiting (connecting our students & mentors for FT/PT work opportunities); team training; and more.
