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!

- Learning user-centered design and conducting research on the needs of your users and businesses.
- Sharpening your skills in interaction design and information architecture.

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.
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.
- 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.”
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.
- Designing your site for production.
- Considering technological constraints from the very beginning.
