Why join this event?
Radu Vucea, founder of Mento Design Academy, is hosting a session on (almost) everything you need to know if you want to become a UI / UX Designer or add this skillset to do your current job better. Radu will share what he learned the most successful people do to become or learn UI / UX, after working with 200+ designers.

From why would you consider it, to the investment required (time, money, effort), answers to common challenges, and how to choose the best educational program for you.

If you’re a freelancer or an employee in a company, knowing UI / UX or transitioning to a role in UI / UX design allows you to gain more power over the product that gets created, higher pay, and a more future-proof career.

Who's this event for?

  • Graphic Designers / Visual Artists: Unlock a more meaningful, outcome-driven career with better job prospects and higher pay.
  • Front-end Developers: Elevate your skills and create better deliverables with enhanced UX/UI design knowledge.
  • Product Managers: Gain more control over your product's direction by becoming a UI / UX Designer or having this skillset as a PM.
  • For aspiring / people passionate about UI / UX Design: We believe anyone can become a UI / UX Designer if they’re passionate and willing to invest the time and effort. From people that work in tech (marketing, operations, customer support, etc) to most backgrounds you can think of (psychology, healthcare, education, etc).
