The UX Fundamentals workshop is designed for professionals who want to learn how to apply UX in their profession as well as people who want to become UX designers.
You will learn how to craft an experience that resonates with your users, how to stress-test it and validate it with user research and how to design for fast growth and rapid iterations.
We will cover the following key topics:
User research and synthesis
Concepting (Wireframing, User flows, Cognitive patterns)
Design systems (Design principles & Design Libraries)
The workshop is project based, which means that we will be actively working on a project and solving a real world challenge. By the end of the workshop, you will have a project worth displaying in your portfolio!
Two weeks after the workshop, we will host an online Q&A session open to all workshop participants. This will allow you to ask follow up questions and fine tune your learnings.
