    After completing 90% of my Designlab UX Design bootcamp, I realized I needed extra guidance creating a portfolio I'm proud of. I was specifically looking to build a portfolio of the quality I need to get the quality job I'm looking for. This course delivers, in a simple to follow (though not easy) process. It's a ton of work that results in an incredible creation that gives me the confidence to apply for those dream jobs! 

    Stella is a superstar mentor and guide, striking the perfect balance between encouragement and pushing me to be better.

    In my opinion, I think Path Unbound has come up with many creative programs such as the portfolio school and design school, with multiple skills taught in them both. They cater to both eager-to-learn designers and current designers who want to improve their abilities. I would really recommend them to students looking for programs to enhance their skills.

    I had learned the basics of UI Design from another program, but felt at a loss when it came to creating a portfolio without feeling like an imposter.  The Path Unbound Portfolio School turned out to be exactly what I needed to finally build a portfolio I could be proud of.  This course covers all the key elements needed to create a portfolio from scratch, from the fundamentals of Webflow, to identifying the unique qualities that make you stand out as a designer and developing your personal brand, to bringing everything together visually in a fully functional portfolio site.  Stella has a keen eye for design, and the one-on-one sessions with her were invaluable.  She offered very insightful feedback and guidance.  My background is a probably a bit different from most, and she encouraged me to showcase that side, rather than going with a more cookie-cutter approach.  That’s something I really appreciated, and demonstrates how much she cares about her students succeeding in a way that works for them.  I highly recommend Path Unbound for a personalized and effective learning experience.

    Great organization with courses that are extremely valuable for designers. While the portfolio school is geared mostly towards people relatively new in their field, it is great for both people who are just starting out, and for people who have been in their industry for some time, but want to elevate the way they present their work. The course is demanding, but worth it! The live sessions are invaluable, since they push you forward when you are spinning your wheels and have been staring at your work for too long. Stella is the mentor every designer needs - the perfect blend of educator and graphic designer who knows her industry well, with a no-nonsense approach that will point out where you need to improve. If you need a push to advance as a designer, I definitely recommend Path Unbound. There are also scholarships available, which is great.

    I had tried for months to remake my portfolio website on my own - but I kept feeling lost, and unsure of myself, and my portfolio didn't feel like 'me'. Path Unbound was a perfect opportunity. I really enjoyed the buildup to the actual site building, which included identifying my best strengths, creating my own brand, and learning the skills needed to make something look polished. The weekly curriculum and set tasks held me accountable, and Stella had great feedback at every step. Learning Webflow was a great tool that I can add to my resume, and there were great resources at the end of the course. I also appreciated how open Stella was to feedback about the course and has changed certain steps to better help future students.

    The only thing I will say is - it was a lot of work. For me, it was definitely more like 3-4 hours a day instead of the estimated 1-2. I'm sure some people would be able to put in the estimated 10 hrs/week and be fine, but I'm not sure I would have completed the course on time if I had a full-time job. That being said, it shouldn't deter you from the course. They were always very understanding with deadlines and if I needed extra time. I highly recommend this program.

    Path Unbound has a really great free design school! I love that it's self paced and also cover a wide range of design topics like typography, color, branding, as well as UI design and interaction design. There is also a unit on basics and wire-framing. I'm going to sign up for the Portfolio School next because I now have some work I'd like to get out there and start applying for jobs. Thanks Path Unbound!

Thanks!
