GoCatch is a mobile application that connects taxi drivers directly with passengers across Australia. We conducted an end to end review of the booking process for both the passenger and the driver.


GoCatch should aim for an extremely simple application that allows passengers to book a cab in one screen and allows drivers to accept jobs in one click. As a team we recognized that the main pain points were related to three problem areas: barrier to enter, passenger wait time, and call between the passenger and the driver.

We love questions, almost as much as we love providing answers. Here are a few samplings of what we’re typically asked, along with our responses:

Why is this course relevant today?

What separates a good product from a great product — an app that jumps to a user’s home page rather than getting pushed to the back of a folder, or a website that people can’t wait to share with their friends and family — is user experience. User Experience Designers constantly analyze the world around them in a never-ending quest to bring joy, simplicity, and function to everyday experiences. The User Experience Design Immersive aims to get students to think like designers, and equip them with the skills and tools necessary to implement their vision.

The field of User Experience Design is also growing rapidly, and there’s never been a better time to find a job in UX.

What practical skill sets can I expect to have upon completion of the course?

By the end of this intensive course, you will be able to:

  • Implement user research tactics to gain a deeper understanding of what users need and want.
  • Identify the best ways to organize information on a given site or app.
  • Design a digital product that behaves intuitively and brings joy and function to users.
  • Utilize visual design in order to make beautiful digital products.
  • Explain your process through the use of sketches, wireframes, and presentations.
  • Collaborate with design teams to see a project from start to finish.

Whom will I be sitting next to in this course?

  • People as passionate about great stuff as you are.
  • Graphic designers, creative directors, journalists, architects, entrepreneurs, and folks just out of college.
  • Individuals looking to enter the world of UX design professionally.
  • Your future best friends.

What can I expect to accomplish by the end of this course?

By the end of the course, you will have:

  • Created two-to-three strong pieces of work for your portfolio, including artifacts such as sketches, user research, and working prototypes.
  • Learned about UX techniques and strategies from the top UX practitioners currently in the field.
  • Networked with some of the best designers, product managers, and entrepreneurs in your local community.
  • Eaten at least 3 or 4 whole pizzas over the entire 10 weeks.
  • Worked together with incredibly talented and motivated individuals who you will stay in touch with long after the course.

What are my financing options for an immersive program?

Financial hurdles shouldn’t keep you from your goals. That’s why we collaborate with financing partners so you can focus on your goals instead of the barriers that keep you from reaching them. Note: to apply for financing, you must first be accepted into a GA program.
