Being part of the Pro Membership has become a very important chapter in my creative journey for several reasons. This is my first creative community and it has given me the opportunity to share and receive opinions, experiences and insights.

One of the biggest advantages is having a seasoned instructor who shares his thoughts and experience of the industry, oversees my projects and provides constructive feedback helping me improve my skills. Last, but not least, I have also learned a lot from the feedback provided to the other members. I love to analyse their work and compare my conclusions to Martin’s and for me this is a very enjoyable way of learning.

I think the courses on the platform are some of the best available at the moment as they offer great in-depth knowledge of the Creative Cloud programs and graphic design theory, yet they are easy to understand and follow thanks to the fun examples and projects which go along with them. 

Ephraim Shapiro| Israel

This is my first online learning experience with interactive elements. Over the past five years I have attended two different offline design courses, and despite the fact that I was physically more present on lessons, in terms of quantity and intensity I got much more from Yes I'm a Designer. I received more constructive feedback on my work, and produced more designs that I can use in my portfolio.

Nicole Heinrich| Germany

Becoming a Pro Member meant that I got a 360° creative safe seat in the design world and it provided me the freedom to find my specific niche from the plethora of different subject areas, such as packaging design and illustration. The Live Webinars and the Community has given me the important feedback and sense of security I need to improve my technical or theoretical skils in order to step out of my comfort zone and create good work. For me personally, this is a very important factor in online learning. Being able to have Martin as a highly ambitious and certified teacher is fantastic. As a mother of two, I am learning at my own pace to realize my dreams a little further each day, while working from home.

Graham Goater| England

Watching Yes I'm a Designer on YouTube helped me to become a graphic designer, but it was only when I joined as a Pro Member that I really saw BIG results. The practice briefs gave me motivation to put what I learnt into practice. The feedback given by Martin and fellow students also helped me improve so much quicker than what I would have done if I was on my own. I'm now picking up regular work and setting up my new graphic design business in the new year. Thanks Martin and the rest of the YES team!

Dániel Földes | Hungary

The courses on Yes I'm a Designer helped a lot to prepare for the Adobe Certified Professional exam. There were 13 theoretical questions about the icons, interface, few definitions, followed by 17 practical tasks for example: select the red area of a flower or change the copyright status of an image or edit the typo as they wished, flip a logo on a document horizontal, etc.

Overall I found it fairly easy to pass on my first attempt and I am already preparing for the Illustrator and InDesign Professional exams.

Martin is a fantastic teacher. I have been using Illustrator for 25 years, but often felt that I didn't know it particularly deeply, and wasn't using it as efficiently or fully as I'd like. I learned so much from the Illustrator Masterclass - part of a large collection of courses included in the subscription - and immediately started working better and more confidently as a result. I feel like I know the software much better and was surprised to discover whole tools and techniques that I didn't previously know existed. The course has inspired me and made me excited to create again. I'm looking forward to exploring the course library further.

Jason

If I have found this course before I wouldn't have signed up for a 1 year Diploma within a well recognized design school in New Zealand. I'm learning sooooo much more from Yes, I'm a Designer. The course is dynamic, super well structure and Martin is an amazing teacher. Have nothing bad to say about it. So many examples to learn from, I'm super happy and excited that I'm doing this course and feel that in such little time I'm already so much better than when I started.

Vivian

I have been working on the Indesign and Illustrator courses and they are excellent. They are very complete and the level of detail of the courses is great for anyone trying to get a handle on Adobe products. The examples and the student exercises help me understand the concepts. I have gone to one webinar and felt that Martin is knowledgeable and makes a real connection with the repeating students that submit work for him to review and mentor them.
