Web Design + UX/UI (Nights & Weekends)

offered by Startup Institute

Our web design track will train you in front-end development and interface design with an emphasis on user-centered principles. You’ll juggle code and design as you learn how the most innovative companies create great digital products.

As a web designer you will be tasked with taking a product and turning it into an experience. You’ll need to balance dynamic visuals and interactivity with optimal performance.

Built on the product development life cycle, the curriculum simulates real-life challenges to prepare you to successfully take a project from concept to launch. Lesson delivery focuses on teaching relevant industry languages such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and jQuery. You’ll also get hands-on experience with local designers to learn about wireframing, low-fidelity mockups, and rapid prototyping to help you work quickly and take your designs to the next level.
