I just wanted to say thanks to Andrija! Conversations with him helped me reach an entirely new level, one I couldn’t dream of just a year or two ago. I quickly landed a job at a prominent award-winning product design agency as a UX strategist! Our talks helped me grow into a new role, and I couldn’t be more excited! His passion for product design and UX is contagious!

Before I started freelancing, I worked as a UX designer and researcher in a local design agency. Most of my work was under strict NDAs.

Calls with Andrija helped me plan my portfolio so it showcases my skills without impacting the contracts I was under. Besides that, I trained how to confidently speak to clients which helps me out a lot now, during my first year as a freelancer. I take every new client opportunity as a new job interview.

I call Andrija my jack of all design trades guy! Having 1:1 meetings with him helped me create and enhance my portfolio. It took me only 2 months to start working as a UX and UI designer after my calls with Andrija!

I had a developer’s background and discussing some of my decisions with him helped me switch my way of thinking to more of a true designer’s perspective. He helped me bridge that developer to designer gap with ease! My projects varied from data visualization dashboards to UX-heavy chatbot apps. He was able to provide tips on everything from small UI tweaks like the typography to the presentation structure of my work.

When it comes to preparing me for the job interviews, he gave me directions on answers to highly likely interview questions and tips on how to negotiate my work conditions. I am confident about recommending his mentoring abilities as his approach was very tailored to what I personally needed. I still reach out to him and consider him my go-to design support!

Andrija’s help in changing careers was invaluable to me. In a couple of 1:1 sessions, I learned skills and tools that would normally take months or more to master. He aided me in making the transfer into the dynamic world of marketing and content design. Even to this day, I still seek advice from Andrija,  and I’m convinced that he will always give me great tips on how to move forward. His expertise extends beyond UX and UI design, and anyone interested in design in any shape or form can learn so much from him!

I owe a lot of my current success in my field to his mentoring talents. He’s a design rock star, and learning from him was a fantastic and rewarding experience all around. I promise you won’t regret having Andrija as your mentor as you will learn about design processes, building your portfolio, nailing the interview processes, and honestly – a lot more. But most importantly, you will have fun as you grow.

Working with the founders of Supercharge has been a breath of fresh air – they are user-centered, professional designers who can tackle any problem, no matter how niche or complex the industry, and arrive at an intelligent solution the client is enthusiastic about. They also have the soft skills that make the difference between having a good idea and having your good idea implemented – I’ve seen them coach clients in design thinking & respectfully but firmly argue on behalf of the users, grounding their rationale in research.

I’ve seen them do it all – from workshopping with clients, developing user flows and complex service blueprints, structuring and running user research, establishing a design system and completing the detailed design, to QA-ing the development work before it goes live to ensure it’s honoring the initial intentions. They know how to do it all – and most importantly, do it all well. They have a contagious passion for their craft, and the depth and breadth of their knowledge and talent is remarkable. But don’t be intimidated – they’re also easy to work with: they stay humble, they’re flexible, and they’re fun.

In addition to the crucial core design skills, you’ll learn the intangibles that Andrija has mastered — persuasion, presentation, and empathy. He speaks the language of users, stakeholders, and engineers equally well. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better mentor; his particular combination of broad experience, patience & enthusiasm for coaching, and deep design skill is hard to find.

Andrija helped review my portfolio and he gave me valuable tips on how to present myself and my skills better.

Tips varied from UI and style in general to the story I was telling. For example, he suggested incorporating more of my previous work background in sales and to explain how well those skills translate to the UX field! I am now more focused on my growth and more confident! Thanks, Andrija!

Sandra

When it comes to reviewing my portfolio, Andrija helped me tremendously with turning my designs from amateur-looking into professional ones! During our calls, he explained the value of design elements like whitespace and alignment. My designs look so much neater now!

One of the problems I had was overusing color, so we focused on creating more balanced color palettes tailored to the products I was designing for. All of that helped me prioritize the users and not my personal taste. The biggest takeaway from my review calls is the confidence that I can launch a new career in this creative industry after working years and years in the business field. Andrija, you rock!
