    What our students say

    The Yes I'm a Designer program is a MUST for designers looking to up-level their skills. The courses are broken down into bite-sized videos that are super easy to follow and Martin shares all kinds of cool tips along the way. I would definitely recommend these courses to anyone who's either looking to become a designer or a designer who's looking to up their game in a competitive industry.

    Sarah

    I've completed 2 Martin's big courses this year - Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop Masterclass and I really enjoyed them. I've learned many new things and got excellent explanations on how certain things work. I would recommend to anyone interested in the design to check out I'm a Designer website and find suitable courses for them. Thank you Martin

    Juri No987

    I had been using the "yes, IAD" on youtube to slowly learn what I needed to know on youtube, after a while, it just made sense to join the group. Once I had, my learning skyrocketed and I now have my certification test for illustrator booked and feel extremely confident about receiving my certification. I will stay a member to complete my career training.
