This is one of the best Network Design course I have come across, there are so many of them, but this one is on point, easy to follow and I love the HDLC and LLD diagrams and some of the examples you provided. I will recommend this course to any Network Engineer who wants to start doing some serious design, this is not a waste of time investment.

Thus far, very well presented. I hope there maybe new modules that discuss: Capacity Sizing Tuning Reference Bandwidth Overall Best Practice leveraging Placement per Recommended Practices (Access, Agg & Core) of old school HSRP, Spanning Tree Root, VLAN SVIs to the high level basics to place an optimized solution together. Worth the money that I would highly recommend that I do daily as a Principal Architect & Design within the lifecycle Team. Keep up the great content!!

I found this short course on the design Career path very informative, I wish I had come across this earlier in my career (currently a LLD Project engineer myself looking to step into Architecture). It gives good insight on the types of roles along the path and typical expectations on those roles.
