Success story

Oleksandr Boiko

Product Designer
at Excited

"One year ago, I got a fantastic opportunity to study at Excited academy. I liked the format and got there my first practical design experience. It doesn't matter how many articles you read or Youtube videos watched if you don't have a chance to apply it all in practice.

After two intensive months of learning with Excited, I felt how deeply I had improved my skills. I had a lot of detailed feedback from lecturers who are experienced designers and all support from my patient mentor. It meant a lot for me to get knowledge from people who work at Excited because they know all nuances of working with international projects. As a result, I understood the whole design process from the beginning until the last steps. The program is based on topics you will need in real-life work and contains everything you need to know as a Junior Designer for a successful start.

I did my best during the study, and they noticed it. I got the job offer! I have worked at Excited for almost a year, and I am pleased about it. We have cool projects and create first-class digital solutions. I am very grateful to work in such a professional environment and work on Macbook with an M1 :) "
