Hear what our students have said
I was lucky enough to work alongside Grant during his tenure as Lead Instructor at Academy Xi. His enthusiasm for design and teaching was immediately apparent to everyone and the students quickly took to his engaging teaching style and approachable nature. Knowledgeable, experienced and dedicated, Grant is always willing to go above and beyond for his students and colleagues and I would therefore recommend him to any business seeking user experience expertise and digital solutions, or any individual looking for advice in user experience design.

I had the great pleasure of Grant being my lead instructor while studying Human Centred Design & Service Design. Grant came in and rescued the course following the departure of the previous instructor and immediately built rapport and respect with the class and showed he valued teaching and mentoring as much as design itself. Grant's UX, CX, HCD and Service Design knowledge is incredible. He clearly articulates complex ideas and takes great passion in making instruction engaging and fun. Drawing on his impressive portfolio of work for examples, he showcases outcomes as well as processes to explain workflow. He knows to enable you to move a project forward and step back to let you run with it. If Grant is running a course - jump on it- you'll learn a lot. If he is running your project you know you are in incredibly safe hands
Robert LeaverService Designer | CX | UX
was lucky to have Grant as my lead instructor/mentor while studying UX Design. He has the ability to create a safe and inviting learning environment that facilitated discussions and group work. I appreciated that he took the time to get to know each of us and identify our individual needs. Grant's extensive knowledge of HCD & UX Design was so helpful when learning new concepts and how to apply that knowledge. When it came to working on our real-life client project, Grant had a great balance between offering guidance whilst also allowing us to get into a good workflow, consistently offering valuable feedback. If you have the opportunity to learn from Grant/work with him, don't hesitate!
