Bloc is built for the outcomes that you want

Andrew Levinson

Chicago, IL

Bloc's program absolutely changed my life - almost all of it is due to my mentor. He taught me how to think as a designer, which is much more important than learning any tools. My ability to make justified design decisions with a process is the only reason I designed my first app and subsequently got my new Product Designer job.

Before Bloc, Andrew was a Finance and Accounting Consultant. Now, he is a Product Designer at Devbridge Group.

Melissa JAÉN

Santa Monica, CA

Bloc changed my life because it gave me an entirely new skill set that is marketable, that will enable me to work remotely one day, and that might even lead to awesome amalgamations of linguistics and UX, like conversation design, interfaceless UX, and working with systems like Siri and Alexa!

Before Bloc, Melissa was a TEFL Certification Instructor. Now she is a Web Designer at PatientPop.

Kristen Stevens

Austin, TX

With the knowledge I have gained at Bloc, I now have experience in product, UX, and front-end development, which is incredible in tech. With the skills I have gained, I can be more versatile and work better with the teams I lead and most importantly, I know how to empathize with users and build products that meet their needs.

Before Bloc, Kristen was a Product Manager at AthenaHealth. Now, she is an Associate Product Manager at Kasasa.
