This course draws upon best practices from the user experience design (UX Design) industry. Through our weekly live classes, you’ll meet and be inspired by professional designers and educators sharing their stories, tips & tricks. Through our easy-to-follow coursework, you’ll learn to use the same tools industry experts use to create amazing UX and UI designs, including Adobe Experience Design, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

In this course participants will start off examining the users needs and creating relevant documentation that allows a digital, interactive project to have a better fitting, functional, final design. Each week participants will identify key needs that will inform design decisions until the project is ready to be designed graphically as a user interface. In the final weeks of the course participants will create the UI design based on their UX conclusions from the previous weeks.

Course Workshops
Orientation In this section you'll meet your course instructors and find out more about the content and structure.
Class 1 Defining the problem. Creating the solution. Choosing an area in which to work, students will start by trying to understand what the problems are or might be for the user. Some of these may be technical, i.e. what platform best enables the project to work
Class 2 Defining the scope of the project. Now that the problem has been identified and user needs and goals are understood it’s time to think about what information should go on each page.
Class 3 Prototyping and testing. Using the paper prototypes from the week before test out the project on a user. Tips on conducting the study and demonstrate how this occurs with video.
Class 4 Participants will create a mood board of graphic inspiration around the theme of their project. From this a style tile will be established which will show the colours, typography and design elements that will be used.
Class 5 Digital Prototype. The final stage will be producing a working prototype. The video’s will teach participants how to do this with Adobe’s new app XD.
