About This Workshop

As technology changes and more outlets compete for customers’ time online, providing an enjoyable experience is critical to both attracting and keeping users. User experience design is all about solving real problems for real users — and how to do so effectively and creatively.

This hands-on UX design bootcamp will take absolute beginners through the entire UX design process in one day. Gain a practical introduction to core UX and UI design concepts and tools in a UX designer’s toolkit and apply them to real-world examples. You’ll leave with tangible user experience design deliverables to showcase what you’ve learned.

You’ll learn to:

  • Practice UX methods and strategies that lead to successful design solutions
  • Define how UX design fits into your team’s workflow.
  • Leverage knowledge of UX design and UI design terminology, useful tips, and UX designer resources for work projects.
  • Produce user experience design deliverables such as wireframes, prototypes, and usability test reports.
  • Advance your collaboration and ideation skills

Chart your own career path. Pick up where this workshop leaves off. Level up on the job in our User Experience Design part-time course. Or, become a job-ready UX designer with our 10-week, full-time User Experience Design program.

Lead UX Design Immersive Instructor at General Assembly

After graduating from university and a brief interlude as a travelling chef, Byron worked in marketing for a few years before getting struck by the UX bug. In 2009 he took an MSc in Human-Computer Interaction at UCL, and hasn’t looked back since. He has spent much of his career as a freelancer, giving him exposure to a wide range of organisations and sectors - leading a complete redesign of Addison Lee’s mobile app in response to Uber, working on Costa Express’ interface for self-serve coffee bars, and developing a cloud photo management platform for Canon, codenamed Project 1709, to name just a few.

As the Lead Instructor on multiple cohorts of General Assembly's 12 week full-time User Experience Design Immersive course, Byron has facilitated over 1500 hours of remote training. He has supported hundreds of participants in their transition to remote communication, including guiding many of them in running their own remote design sprints, and coaching other instructors in how to cultivate a compelling online learning environment.
