Class Description


What you'll learn in this web design class:

Learn UX & UI Design for Apps & Websites

UX (User Experience) Designers focus on designing apps, websites, and other products that are easy and pleasant for people to use. UI (User Interface) Designers focus on the appearance of apps, websites, and other products so they are beautiful and visually effective. In this summer program, you'll learn key UX & UI design concepts, workflows, and tools and start making your own prototypes.

All projects will be completed with Figma, an app that allows you to create clickable designs that you can share for collaboration and testing. No coding required!
