We start with the basics and tools from the areas of UX and UI. We show you how to use typography, iconography, color and shape principles in digital websites or apps to visualise your ideas.
We’ll learn the Design Thinking method to solve problems in a targeted manner and generate new, market-oriented ideas that convince users.
Building on the first phase, you’ll now deepen your knowledge in the area of user experience. Learn how to build empathy with your users through user research and user-centered design, better understand their needs and incorporate the findings into your further conceptual work.
You’ll further your expertise by creating user personas, flows or journeys. "Content is king" - that's why we're looking at how you can use UX writing and UX storytelling to pick up your users' content.
In phase 2 you’ll learn more complex functions in Figma. You’ll dig into how to make your designs and concepts responsive and accessible in order to offer all people a good user experience.
We deal with "dark" and "light" patterns in design and learn what responsibility designers bear with their work.
You have already acquired good, in-depth knowledge. Now you will learn what a design system is and how to create one. In a practical project, you will create a component-based system together with the other participants and learn how to use prototyping to make your designs interactive.
User testing can be used to measure whether your concept and design meets the needs of users and how you iterate on your design work. You will carry out your very-own first usability test, collect data and gain insights. Here we also deal with dark & light patterns in design and learn what responsibility designers bear with their work - to other people and to our environment.
In order to understand how your concepts and designs are implemented, you will get to know technologies such as HTML and CSS in practice in the web development excursion. You will build empathy for the work of developers and learn how to work successfully with them.
At the end of the phase you will get to know agile methods such as Scrum and Kanban and the workflow of UX/UI designers.
In this phase we dedicate ourselves to your further career as a UX/UI designer. You will learn how to create a case study and get tips on building your portfolio. We look at how the work in the project, product and consulting environment differ from each other.
In addition, you will learn various methods with which you can establish good time management in practice. In the later job it can always be stressful, so you will learn how to keep a cool head in stressful and pressured situations.
So that you can put what you have learned directly into practice, at the end of the course you will create your final project. This will become part of your future UX/UI portfolio and is your chance to show all your skills. Your coaches will be by your side as mentors at all times.
Our doors remain open for personal career sessions (providing we have capacity). You’ll also have lifetime access to our Slack channel, which keeps you connected to thousands of Spicedlings throughout your career. Plus, you’re always invited to join graduations and events to reconnect with the community!
