Are you interested in getting into the BOOMING mobile application market?

UI/UX designers make approximately $40-100/hr and in very high demand.

This course will enable you the skills to build clean and attractive UI designs for iOS (Apple) and Android products. This class is designed for people who already have a working knowledge of computers and some beginner to intermediate design knowledge. Please note that the course is focused on UX/UI design and not so much coding, you will go through some information that will assist you on understanding developmental requirements and specifications.

Mobile applications are different from mobile websites because they are stand-alone software programs meant exclusively for mobile devices. While mobile websites otherwise and/or responsive websites are websites designed for multiple viewing purposes (such as computers, tablets and smart phones) and viewed through an internet browser. Mobile applications are the items you would find in iTunes or Google Play for download while a mobile website. You will find more information on this during the course so that you will become an expert.

We will begin by looking into the details of each popular mobile device and how they relate to your designs. You will be encouraged to share your work with your classmates, engage in discussion and learn to utilize constructive criticism. To determine your progress, you will be given a weekly quiz and a practical assignment.

You will prepare a working model otherwise known as a proof of concept (POC) and understand how to properly balance functionality with appeal. You will find out that a UX/UI designer plays a very important role in website, software and mobile application development. I like to think of a UI/UX designer as an architect and the coders as the builders.

Finally, we will be designing an entire five screen mobile application that would be ready to have over to coders. After this class, you will be ready to take on the vast UI Mobile Application market with confidence on the road to success!

UI/UX is still relatively new with tons of opportunities. Get in while the door is still wide open and hungry for people with this skill set.
