UX Design Bootcamp

Comprehensive UX Design Courses

Learn user experience design by applying the process to a real-life project that will provide your first portfolio piece. The project can be an app or website of your choosing. It can be your own app idea or a real-life project you are currently working on. See pictures of an actual UX class in action. If you don’t have a project, we have samples for you.

  • “ I just completed the UX Fundamentals Class and highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning about UX. The class gave a very comprehensive overview into the philosophy and process of UX, showed real world UX case study examples and then had us apply the UX process to our own class project. In the end I built a working prototype of an app that was based on and informed by me conducting actual user interviews, personas, journey maps etc etc.. It was a great experience to apply the UX process to building my app all while learning a new program- Sketch. The last class everyone presented their case study and app-very inspiring to see what some of my class mates accomplished in a 4 week period! ”
