About This Class

Get practical insight on starting your career as a UX designer. As there are not many academic opportunities to learn about UX design and many of them focus on the theoretical design process, this course provides actionable knowledge for you to learn about working as a UX Designer, as well as tips on how to make your first steps in the industry.

  • The nature of work of a UX designer
  • Deciphering various job roles in UX
  • Core skills and methods designers use on a regular basis
  • Popular design and research tools for the job
  • Soft skills useful in design
  • Recommended learning resources
  • Practical tips on building your portfolio and searching for a job

How UX Designers work

Learn about many different job roles and specialisations, as well as the context of work of a UX Designer. There are many influences in the daily design work, both in an in-house team and agency-side. Learn what those influences are and how different specialisations are involved within the whole length of a model design process.

The skills to master

UX Design is quite a complex job role, because in every project in every organisation you may need to tap into different skills. Because it is a job primarily based on collaborating with other people, I want to show you not only the methods of working or tools to use, but also soft skills that will help you work out various design problems.

Kick-start your career

When I started in the industry, I had to figure everything by myself - which books or blogs to read, how to build my first design portfolio. I’d like you to build on the knowledge I gathered myself and with the help of other designers, and get to know high-quality books, publications and podcasts that will help you grow and stay on top of the game. You will also be able to pick up some ideas for your first portfolio and practical tips on how to build it to impress recruiters.
