About This Class

UI/UX Design is the best job in the world... and this class will teach you how to transition from Graphic design to this innovative, adventurous design field.

In this 60-minute class, I will share my design process and experiences of making a switch from graphic design to UI/UX design. You will learn about similarities and differences between these two fields, digital design roles meanings, relevant tools you need to learn, and the path you take to become a UI/UX designer.

Covering research, analysis, prototype, and iteration, I will teach you how to design a mobile app from scratch. You'll learn how to use Figma by designing the interface for a simple split sharing app. Figma is a great, collaborative tool for getting your ideas out of your head, onto the screen beautifully.

This class is perfect for graphic designers, web designers, and anyone who's been wanting to try mobile app design, but doesn't know where to start.  Lessons include:
