Why should you study UX/UI Design in Düsseldorf

A creative community all its ownDüsseldorf has a history of creativity in fashion, design and art. Artists and the community they formed drove this one-of-a-kind city into a new age of development and growth. In turn, these communities have formed effective lobbies to promote their spaces, rights and events. Within this affordable, safe, inclusive and collaborative atmosphere, the UX/UI sector has exploded and helped push Düsseldorf to become one of the top startup hubs in Europe.
Hands-on UX/UI gatheringsDüsseldorf’s massive UX/UI ecosystem is also home to hundreds of meetups and work-groups that gather in all manner of spaces and formats to focus on the bleeding edge of the sector. The constant conversation has led to more hands-on events.
