Testimonials

"I understand and feel confident in bringing what I learned into my own workflow. It was a great workshop: half-day made it easy to attend, and the price was affordable (first time I've ever said that about a workshop)."

~ Jenn Hinkle, Designer, Hire-a-Helper

The design process you teach is simple. It makes it easy to collaborate with people I haven't met before. I could have spent days online researching… But I saved so much time learning at your in-person workshop. Plus, it was fun!

~ Neil Ranada, Designer

“Awesome, fun, and interactive. I liked that I came out of the workshop having made something, instead of just hearing a lecture.”

~ Jonathan Doctson, UCSD

Nik Top

UX Designer

Nik hates inefficient, clumsy, or unorganized digital products (even if they look cool). As a User Experience designer, he actively fights to produce user-centered digital experiences that surpass their competition. Starting with defining a problem, he tackles projects ranging from early stages of concepting all the way to polished visual design.

As most of us have experienced, interfaces can be consuming. Therefore, Nik balances his human-computer interaction with honing his experience at the piano, building handmade leather goods, and enjoying the occasional surf that San Diego has to offer.
