Associate Consultant Experience Designer Thoughtworks
Thanks to NYCDA I landed a job as a UX designer exactly one week after I finished the course. The UX/UI coursework and class presentations prepared me to confidently present my design at the interview, and I was hired.
Freelance UX Designer
I loved the NYCDA UI/UX course because it was project based. I grew so much from when I first started the class because of amazing feedback I received from both my teacher and classmates. When it came to presenting our final projects, we connected with and received feedback from other UX designers already working in the field. This was an amazing experience as it helped me receive my first freelance job as a UX designer.
This first week of UI/UX Design 101 introduces user experience as the study of one’s behavior, emotions, and attitudes while using a product. The user interface is the front end of an application that users interact with. You will be given UX case studies and learn about current trends in user experience design.
During this week, we’ll teach you how to apply various techniques to gather more information into the design process. This includes card sorting, interviews, usability testing, and diary studies.
By the end of this week, you’ll be able to establish conclusions about your designs and interfaces. In addition, you’ll learn about UX research and business goals to help understand users’ needs in order to finish designing a product.
This week is dedicated to studying user flows and diagrams of web pages that define a logistical task. You’ll also learn about the elements of interface that include information architecture, wireframes, user scenarios, and persona development.
Wireframes are a page schematic or screen blueprint built around a business objective and a creative idea that are created for the purpose of arranging elements and defining functionality. A prototype is an early sample, model, or release of a product built to learn and test a concept or process. This week students will learn to use these tools to further iterate on their ideas.
Usability testing evaluates a product by testing it on real users to gain feedback used to direct future changes or iterations of the product. During this week, you’ll learn and use Sketch in order to create high quality renderings of their creation.
This week you will continue working on wireframe creations with Sketch, and from there, work on your live click-through prototypes and final projects.
During the last week of this course, you will finish up your projects and give your final presentations during which you will receive critiques from teachers and peers. What will you create?
Well-rounded developers are vital to an integrated tech community. Even the most beautifully coded web application will fail if it's not intuitive and fun to use. UI/UX design is the piece of the puzzle that ensures an application can find its audience.
Not in this course. If you want to learn web development, check out Web Development 100 or our Web Development Intensive.
Students will work primarily with Sketch.
Not at all! This course has no prerequisites. However, many students take this course as part of Web Development 100, or find that UI/UX sparks an interest in Front End 101.
Absolutely! Working through the User Experience design process while building a full project for your portfolio will give you a solid foundation for becoming a UX Designer!
UI/UX stands for User Interface/User Experience. User experience is all the interactions and emotions a user experiences when interacting with your product, application, or website.
A UX Designer is a professional who created the ideal experience for a user of a product. They make website and applications easy and intuitive to use.
