Empowering the next generation of designers

We’re a deeply passionate team working from all over the world to build amazing tools to help designers build their careers.

The origins of the Uxcel story

In 2019, Gene Kamenez wanted to find a better way to teach design best practices to professional designers with little time to spare. He started posting animated exercises every day on Instagram, and the project grew into what we now call Uxcel.

Teaming up with longtime colleague Colin Pace, they set out to build a career-building platform that teaches, tests, and connects designers with companies looking to hire worldwide.

The Uxcel team spans the United States, Europe, and India and is 100% remote.
