Course Description
You will learn UX and UI fundamentals, different methods and techniques, which will take your professional skills to the next level. Two terms that are often used interchangeably, but actually mean very different things. Despite their professional relationship, the roles themselves are quite different, referring to very different aspects of the product development process and the design discipline. A UI without UX is like a painter slapping paint onto a canvas without thought; while UX without UI is like the frame of a sculpture with no papier mache on it. A great product experience starts with UX followed by UI. Both are essential for the product's success.

In world of UX and UI design, the most important proof is a portfolio of completed projects executed by the creative. We advise to every student to prepare:
  • his/her portfolio with real or training projects related to UX, UI or other type of graphic design. If you don't yet have a portfolio – any sample of your creative work that demonstrates at least basic design / illustration skills.
  • Be kind and open to learn. Soft skills are becoming more and more important.
