What you will learn during the UX/UI design bootcamp in Barcelona

Prework

In the first 40 hours of your UX/UI design training, you’ll learn the basics of design thinking, interaction design and state-of-the-art design software. Once you’ve received instructions for setting up your tools, you’ll complete specially designed exercises to:

1. create your first usability evaluations and site redesign

2. develop your design sensitivity through fascinating activities

3. perform basic HTML and CSS practice work that is essential for the bootcamp’s design implementation section.

Once you’ve wrapped up these online prep materials, you’ll be all set to start the course off right!

Module 1: Understand user experience

During weeks one and two, you will learn the fundamental UX/UI industry frameworks: design thinking, agile methodologies and lean structuring. Then hone your UX research methods, interaction design principles and information architecture.

Topics include:

- Applying design thinking in conjunction with lean structures and agile methods.

- Learning user-centered design and conducting research on the needs of your users and businesses.

- Sharpening your skills in interaction design and information architecture.

- Building your first interactive prototypes for testing.

In week three your first project begins! Manage your first product design project with agile methodology to discover your users and then plan a product roadmap to solve their problems. Finish up with guerrilla testing and presentations to enhance your public speaking skills.

Module 2: Learn to design user interfaces

In weeks four and five you will uncover the fundamentals of branding and design for UI close-loop design. Then implement this knowledge to generate engaging, elegant and scalable user interfaces.

Topics include:

- Generating original ideas for digital products and bringing them to production.

- Mastering design systems in order to create a fully animated interactive prototype.

- Testing your prototype to balance market demands and desirability.

Week six calls for your second project: creating a state-of-the-art website design with engaging animations and a refined style! Document the entire process to ensure a smooth hand-off to “Development.” Then, after completing your project, you will present it to the “shareholders.”

Module 3: Design implementation

The final module begins in weeks seven and eight, where you’ll start implementing your designs in real life. Build your first responsive one-page website by utilizing the developers’ best practices you’ve learned.

Topics include:

- Designing your site for production.

- Considering technological constraints from the very beginning.

- Preparing all of the correct assets.

- Learning essential soft skills, such as portfolio fine-tuning and client connections.

Your final, and by far most challenging project takes place during the last week of the module and the course. Develop a digital product for a problem of your choosing. When you finish your project, you will compete alongside your classmates in our live Hackshow. Do you have what it takes to win?

Why should you study UX/UI design in Barcelona

Global creative focal pointBarcelona is one of the most creative cities in the world, right up alongside San Francisco, New York and London, according to a survey conducted by the Barcelona Design Centre. Industry leaders polled in the survey also confirmed that this creative energy is perhaps the biggest reason why Barcelona’s tech business is booming. Companies are drawn to the city because its infrastructure supports creativity, local design networks, startups and entrepreneurs. Barcelona’s incomparable creative ecosystem is only growing.
Remarkable UX/UI eventsStanding as a European hub for designers and UX/UI professionals, it’s no wonder that Barcelona is also home to some of Europe’s best UX/UI events. Among them is the App Design and Development Conference (ADDC). This single-track international conference for iOS and Android developers and UX/UI designers brings together designers and developers from around the world. Experience two days of intensive talks and one day of interactive workshops, group activities and a conference party. The goal of ADDC is to generate opportunities for the UX community to meet up and investigate new methods of working together.
Thriving UX/UI communityOne of Barcelona’s biggest selling points for new companies is its already well-established community of creatives and designers. A prime example of which is OFFF, an open-ended community taking the form of three days of conferences, workshops, activities and performances. Innovative talents from around the world share their experiences annually in Barcelona, then OFFF tours the world for the rest of the year. So much more than a conference, think of OFFF as a creativity festival.
