About this workshop

Many of us have had ideas for mobile apps float through our minds, and it’s entirely possible one of your ideas could turn into something great — but without the knowledge of how to create, design, and market your new app, it’s impossible for your idea to come to fruition. This workshop will teach you about the process of designing an app from start to finish — from the inception of your idea, to learning about iOS design, and applying these design rules in a wireframe you design from scratch.
