Anastasiia, Russia

Master student, course alumni, Thank you for the Kurs Zero and for your help. I wouldn’t be able to pass the interview without your recommendations and questions. And the course itself was very helpful. Even though I worked in Adobe programs before, I saw another approach to problem-solving, saw how designer-thinking works and realized that it’s not easy. But it was fun, enjoyable and interesting. Thank you! See you in autumn.
