So you’ve started learning design…now what?

  • There are thousands of ways to learn design fundamentals, but most courses end after teaching the basics, leaving you all alone for the most difficult part — improving your skills and building an amazing and unique portfolio that will actually land you a job.
  • Without the support of your own dedicated mentor to help you set goals, stay accountable, and improve as a designer after you’ve learned the basics, the process of building a portfolio and getting a job can feel overwhelming, if not impossible.

We call this huge space between being proficient and actually being job-ready...The Gap.

1-on-1 mentorship is proven to help aspiring designers make faster progress, land more interviews, and get a job more quickly. But until now, mentorship has been locked behind expensive bootcamps only accessible for a small % of people.

We think that everyone should have access to world-class mentors who will work with you to customize a unique action plan based on your goals, and your goals alone.

And that’s exactly where RookieUp comes in!
