FAQ

How does the Mentor program work?

The mentor program is a subscription service that renews every 30 days until you cancel (you can cancel at any time). When you participate in a design challenge module, you're able to submit your Figma prototype URL. At that point, within 3 to 5 days, your work is reviewed in the form of comments, a rating, and sometimes design refactoring by Gary Simon. This feedback is essential and will help give you direct feedback based on your progress as a UI designer.
