About this class

"UX in a Nutshell” compresses years of learning into a single, simple look at the foundations of how we process Information Architecture in order to get that A-Ha moment, see the interface, and flesh out the wireframes.

  • We look at several detailed blueprints. Most include User Roles, Site Maps, and corresponding wireframes.

  • How do we extract information from stakeholders? How do we know what we are designing when the stakeholders explain what they (think they) want, and hope you can give them?

  • What does this professional blueprint/deliverable look like?

  • This class shows how to design (mainly) enterprise applications. There is little to no Start-Up or website material here. The blueprints are often 15-30 pages deep. In a blueprint (PDF deliverable), the user roles take up one page, the site maps take up 1-4 pages, and the annotated wireframes correspond to all boxes in the site maps showing how pages or features are represented in wireframe form, for delivery to visual designers and development teams.

Takeaways

In this class you will:

  • Understand how to process UX deliverables, and what goes in them.

  • Learn interviewing techniques to extract information from stakeholders.

  • Walk away with the confidence and tools to go in and do your first UX project independently.

  • If time permits, we will have one in-class work assignment.

  • Future access to me as a mentor.
