UI Design

Subjects: ,


 

The ​course ​takes ​you ​through ​the ​process ​of ​designing ​user ​interfaces ​from ​scratch. ​You ​will ​start ​by becoming ​familiar ​with ​Sketch ​and ​its ​available features ​by ​creating ​existing ​UI ​elements ​and interfaces ​using ​the ​tool. ​As ​you ​work ​through ​the ​course, ​you ​will ​also ​create ​your ​own ​UI ​elements
before ​diving ​into ​designing ​the ​interface ​for ​entire ​apps. ​To ​complement ​the ​highly ​practical aspects ​of ​the ​course, ​you ​will ​explore ​and ​apply ​the ​theory ​behind ​creating ​visually ​appealing products ​that ​will ​impress ​employers ​and ​clients ​alike.

By ​the ​end ​of ​the ​course, ​you ​will ​have ​mastered ​Sketch ​and ​InVision, ​both ​of ​which ​are ​industry standard ​tools, ​and ​have ​numerous ​essential ​job ​skills ​under ​your ​belt. ​Among ​others, ​these ​include responsive ​design, ​visual ​design ​principles, ​designing ​for ​different ​platforms, ​wireframing, ​mockups,
prototyping, ​testing, ​and ​a ​little ​bit ​of ​UX ​design ​thrown ​in ​there, ​too.

The ​course ​is ​divided ​into ​six ​Achievements. ​Each ​Achievement ​explores ​a ​specific ​topic, ​and ​by ​the end ​of ​each ​one ​you ​will ​have ​completed ​a ​piece ​of ​UI ​design ​work ​for ​your ​portfolio. ​Each Achievement ​is ​broken ​down ​into ​eight ​to ​ten ​Exercises. ​For ​a ​closer ​look ​at ​the ​curriculum, ​check
out ​the course ​plan.

In ​each ​Exercise, ​you ​will ​explore ​a ​specific ​topic ​and ​apply ​what ​you ​have ​learned ​to ​the ​final ​Task. Some ​of ​these ​Exercises ​contain ​a ​video ​tutorial ​to ​support ​your ​learning. By ​the ​end, ​you’ll ​have ​a job ​ready ​portfolio ​to ​show ​for ​it.
