About This Class

User research can sound confusing and strange but it is something we can all benefit from in our creative work, be it designing an app or writing a novel. User research is really about working with the skills we already have: observation, curiosity, understanding, learning to see the invisible and all the things that art teaches you. Whether you're designing a product or writing a novel, having a good understanding of the people behind it can make all the difference!

I'm an artist and I do use research in a lot of my work, which spans painting, writing and designing various (real and virtual) products. In this class I share with you some of my tips, techniques and ideas that I've put together over the years and I hope to show you how they can improve your creative work, process, and results as well as life in general. The class is complemented with a few fun exercises for you to practice and grow your magic powers! Enjoy!
