I recently had the opportunity to speak with Erik Kennedy from Learn UI Design.
During our short, 18-minute chat Erik shares the beginnings of his career, what led him to create his awesome UI design course, and what’s next for his brand new UX design course.
If you’re thinking of taking either course, this interview might help you decide if it’s a good fit. While a detailed review of Erik’s UX design course is in the works, you may also want to check out my demo video of Learn UI Design here.
A link to the video interview and show notes are below. Enjoy!
