Product Design (or User Interface Design) aims to shape and improve the user experience through means of visual communication, such as illustrations, photography, typography, space, layouts, and colour.
In this bootcamp we'll take a look at how a successful UI design enhances the product's content and functions by engaging users and helping to build their trust and interest.
We will be using a design tool called Figma - before class you can sign up for a free account at figma.com, and download the appropriate app for your operating system. If you'd like to get even more of a jump on things you can watch some tutorials on Figma's YouTube Channel here.
No prior knowledge is required. Aspiring, novice and intermediate product design, development and product management professionals will find this most beneficial.
