LUNCH & LEARN : UI IN A NUTSHELL

This hour long intensive lunchtime workshop will give you a very high level overview of the UI/UX basics, plus some starter tips on Sketch. If you're looking to make the first step towards becoming a UI designer, this is for you...

UI

1. WHAT IS USER INTERFACE (UI) DESIGN?

You probably know what UI design is and what designers do, even if you've just Googled it. Over the lunch hour, you'll get to find out from our teacher's first-hand experience, what life is really like as a UI designer and what is expected of you in the real world.

You'll be shown how businesses go about putting together user journeys, why they develop personas and how you work with UXers to build out the wireframes for mobile, tablet and desktop.

We'll also give you a 10 minute introduction to the fabulous design standard programme Sketch to help start you on your own user journey.

UX

2. HOMEWORK!

That's not all! We know your brain is likely to have been fried in the short time we have together and so we will set you a task to carry out at home. 

Once you've finished your project, you will then send it to your tutor for review and comment. 

Their feedback will help you develop your thinking and finesse the application of the skills you're learning over time.

Attendees of the Lunch & Learn have the opportunity to take the full UI/UX two hour workshop at a discounted rate, if they wish to deepen their knowledge.
