Our Bootcamp Success Stories

Our graduates have gone on to a ton of amazing jobs. Here are just a few of their stories.

Adrian Aras

Visual Designer at

DESIGNATION helped me to create a great portfolio based on real clients with real problems. The whole experience was amazing.


Jenna Reed

UI Designer at

I liked seeing all the work I had accomplished and realizing I could get somewhere better after all the work I’d put in.


Wes Martin

UX Designer at

DESIGNATION armed me with so much that I would probably have to be in the absolute perfect world sunnyday work environment to be able to use it all.


Fahmida Azad

UX Designer at

DESIGNATION has played a pivotal role in taking me towards that direction. I am still in ‘bootcamp mode’ at my new job, because I want to get better and better and want to keep learning.


Erin Dunn

UX Manager at

At DESIGNATION, I learned the skills that I needed to get into this company. It was great to have a network of people that knew me and my goals and wanted to help me.


Trinidad Araujo

UX Designer at

The people at DESIGNATION are all really dedicated. The staff is really helpful, and the other students are really driven. You get to meet people that are as passionate about design as you are, which is awesome.


Charles Hu

Product Designer at

Everyone has to start somewhere, and DESIGNATION will leave you better prepared than the vast majority of designers out there.


Zoë Sinner

UX Designer at

DESIGNATION broadened my fundamentals and taught me the skills to help solve design problems. And more importantly, it taught me to be a confident designer. All of these things I use in my current job.


Martha Willis

Product Designer at

DESIGNATION definitely helped to prepare me for my new job. What I learned at DESIGNATION can be applied to everything I do in my new position. I was given a great foundation to build upon.


Igor Milovanovic

Lead UI Designer at

DESIGNATION gave us the opportunity to practice real life situations of an office/agency setting in a safe environment. We were able to “play house” and through that process acquire tangible experience and skills. … I was able to nail two job offers out of three interviews in one week, and it was my skills and the way I presented myself that led to that.


Angelina Cole

UX Designer at

I left my job, my apartment, my life and my city to come to DESIGNATION and it was the best choice I've ever made.
