CEO & Head of Design at Sketchin
In only 12 weeks I had gained all the hard skills and soft skills to give me a real edge in my career as a junior digital professional. I feel like the Talent Garden Innovation School is so different and special because they really give importance and pay attention to the students and our professional growth.
Giulia, Talent Garden Innovation School Alumna
The weeks at Talent Garden Innovation School were super intense: theoretical and practical lessons, the realization of a group project with a partner company and a personal project that I worked night and day on in the last two weeks. But they have also been amazing weeks: night-time dinners, organized events on campus and foosball matches during breaks. I also had the opportunity to
experience a trip experience: 5 days of full immersion, useful for getting to know important international companies and improving my skills in the field. I can't even count how many cool people I met during this journey.
Tommaso, Talent Garden Innovation School Alumnus
A perspective on the education that I wouldn’t otherwise get. Maybe I can also cooperate with Talent Garden or with some of the companies that we got to know here to actually become more professional in the way we are doing things.
Innovative spaces, the rooms, the people, and the whole information that gets transferred. I think it’s a really really good approach for people in our creative industry to get to know a lot of different things and new technologies.
It’s a perfect combination of so many aspects that provides a lot of chances for young people, especially students or newcomers in this whole working world. It is just the right thing for people who love challenges.
It's a perfect way to learn A LOT in a very short time. So if you want to skip university, just go to Talent Garden Innovation School. I also like that it's a new way of learning and studying and not old fashioned university style.
I really enjoyed and loved the course. I'm really sad it's over. It was such a great experience and I grew so much as a person in the best possible way. Talent Garden gave me so much and I really found myself in this course. The experts and the content was awesome and I feel like I have learned so much and feel very equipped for the job market. Thank you much for everything and organising all the events and just creating such a great experience for us.
State of the art contents, great teachers, good place to learn, dedication from Talent Garden, practical knowledge that you can apply immediately.
I would recommend this course to anyone I know and care about. It was a great experience and I learned so much, even though I didn't think it would be possible in such a short amount of time. Talent Garden Vienna is such a lovely, warm but professional place, it's just great to spend every day here.

Dive deeper into the world of UX/UI Design
The profession of a “UX Designer” has quickly become one of the most sought-after positions in the world of technology. This is not that surprising. The various creative skills needed, the high degree of flexibility in project planning and last, but not least, the lucrative salary all make this role very rewarding.
When creating any digital project, the focus must now be on the user. Websites, marketing campaigns, posts and social content are all designed to offer a User Experience that encourages you to arrive, spend time, and guide you to convert on the site.
Dimitar Genov was a participant of the very first UX Design course happening in our Campus in Vienna. Read the interview to find out more about the course and its content, which experiences he liked most and the prototyping tool that totally blew his mind.
The demand for User Experience Design skills has never been higher. Increasingly, graphic designers, web developers, software engineers and product managers need to truly understand users before they can create the right solution. We interviewed Mark Swaine, an international product thought leader with a UX/CX background, working with tech startups and VCs internationally.
