Certified UI Designer

Duration

3 days

Overview

A good interface (website or app) stimulates, grasps the visitor’s attention and invites them to take action. With UI design, it’s all about the wow factor, but in a way that makes the users reach their goals quickly and efficiently. Sometimes it’s in the small details, such as the shape of a button or the font size of a text.

  • Which graphic elements or lay-out work best for your application? And how do you convert these attractive graphical elements in user-friendly, intuitive and efficient applications?

  • Which elements can you use to easily guide your users and or visitors through your website or application?

  • Where do you place the buttons and call-to-actions for your user, so that the interface is easily understandable?

  • Would you like to be able to perform all aspects of the lifecycle of product development, interface design included?

  • Would you like to know how to build wireframes (prototypes) in Sketch?

Then the training “Certified UI Designer” is exactly what you need. In this three-day course, you learn to choose the experience of the user as a starting point for the design of your website or app. You acquire the skills you need to create a digital product. We put this knowledge into practice by working on a design in Sketch.
