I attended a week long business model design course at NID, Gandhinagar, and I can say that it was one of the most fun modules of that semester.
The kind of energy that Karthi brings to her lectures is contagious. Not only did she teach business models in a very fun way, but she also personally inspired and motivated me to put out my writing to the world - something that I had been wanting to do for long!
As part of growing startup, we have been working on constantly upgrading our product experience.
This also means we simultaneously need to uplift skills of our design and product teams. But when we looked around, there weren't any great options to do this.
When I saw DPDI course from Xperian, I instantly realised that if it delivers on what it promises, it shall be perfect solution for us. And I am glad that it clicked.
The two team members that attended this course saw remarkable improvement in their understanding of applied design.
And this improvement has been reflected in the projects they have undertaken post this course. Kudos to Karthi and Xperian team. Keep up the great work!
I want to take out some time today and thank Karthi and the whole Xperian team for creating such an amazing community that helps you learn and grow in a commendable manner.
You get to learn so much I can't even begin to explain. So, last month as a maker (that's what we call ourselves in the maker's guild community) I took up the #visual30D challenge and decided to learn something new each day be it in terms of UI, Sketching, Motions etc. and got to learn so much along with building a habit and being held accountable.
So, if you're someone who wants to network, learn and challenge yourself. I'd highly recommend you to checkout Maker's Guild.
Karthi & her team brought in a first-principles approach to design in our products and never let us settle with our initial ideas before they were sufficiently brainstormed & let to mature.
Her philosophical approach to design helped us think about userneeds before what is seen in the surface.
Makers Guild is a safe place to share thoughts and be open about wins, failures makes me feel there is someone to listen.
If I've clocked about 400K+ reach, made great connections, went speaking at an event & launching a live show soon it's because of this community.
Karthi has been one of the most significant influences in my life. By every definition, she is been what you would call a mentor.
The best thing that has happened to me this year is learning product design from Karthi. She loves what she does and you can see that love in her classes.
That passion to make us all designers is what motivated us to keep going! I started seeing products and life much differently.
It is great to be part of a like minded group. I have seen my subconscious learning and improving even after the sessions are over.
I am glad I attended the Jumpstart session (that was an eyeopener) and got motivated to be part of like minded people at Nocoloco.
I have reached out to the team at several occasions and it's been wonderful learning discussing No-Code doubts. Personally I have also benefitted from the Learn Hours.
The last nine months have truly been life-changing for me thanks to Maker's Guild.
There is so much you can look forward to in a community like Maker's Guild.
For me self awareness was the first step, being accountable to the community ensured that I made progress every single day.
We did deep work/focused work, atomic accountability, book living, challenges, learnt continuously, asked for help and got it too, and a lot more.

Karthi perfectly aligns this quote with her teachings. Her super strong fundamentals makes you to dig back to roots and make you to feel the joy of learning the details.
Bigger picture on business and teaching the process towards solutions were a treasure for human centric problems.
One has to taste the honey to express it and I would say sitting in her classes lightens you up. Her way of connecting the dots of various topics were so ease and she designs it like arranging right puzzle.
DPDI was a life changing design experience both as a human approach towards human centric problems as well as a business product design specialist.
Curated no-code landscape course is on a generous free offer from Madhuri and team.
They've tested 120+ nocode platforms and compiled them in a neat little package. Great foranyone who's curious about no-code.
My experience with Maker's Guild has been nothing but positive. It was just very nice to be in a learning space with like minded people.
My most favourite experience so far has been the 30 Day No-Code Challenge. It has helped me so much, not just the learning about no-code but it has helped me become productive and build better habits.
We have invited Karthi to teach our Postgraduate (MDes) students of Transportation & Automobile design July 2018 for 2-week course module on HMI (Human Machine Interface), knowing her background in Cognitive science.
She has delivered the inputs of this complex subject very effectively, her presentation and preparation for the course material was professional.
She brought her vast industry experience and shared her passion for design thinking with our students with utmost honesty. I reckon she has inspired all the students in such as short span, making them wish to learn more from her.
A very humble and true design educator. Looking forward to having you more often at NID.
Xperian School, hands down is the best school I have ever come across both online + offline.
The most credit for this goes to Karthi! She has been instrumental in not just teaching but giving us a new pair of glasses to see the design and in that way, the entire world in a diffeerent way.
Madhuri at Xperian makes it smoother than you can imagine. She is ultra-responsive and takes care of everything. The Visual Design, Typography knowledge from Arjun is phenomenal. His passion and love for design are infectious.
Also, the team at Xperian has had several years of experience designing for the multi-million dollar companies so what you learn is not just theory but Industry grade design knowledge which is hard to get.
Basically, if you are serious about learning design, just go and sign up! period.
