Visual and UI Design
Visual Designers focus on the look and feel of digital products such as websites and apps, creating mockups in Sketch, Adobe XD, or Photoshop. Visual designers are sometimes called UI designers (user interface designers) and often work closely with UX designers.

Because of our small class sizes, you’ll receive individual support when you need help. You’ll be working hands-on from day one in any of our programs. At each class, you’ll receive a custom training manual developed by our team of instructional experts.
Jonathan, a recent graduate, says, “I found the hands-on approach very effective. The exercises are modular and build on previous ones and every time you complete one you've made something happen that you didn't know how to do 30 minutes ago. That’s a great feeling and helps keep you engaged in what you're learning. Piece by piece you're building practical skills that you can apply immediately.”

We’re excited to welcome you to our learning community at our main campus in New York City. Dan Rodney, Director and Head of Curriculum at Noble says, “At Noble, we foster a community of web designers who continue to learn new skills as the industry changes and evolves.
