Program

Preparation for the beginning

Immediately after passing the interview and enrollment, the student starts preparing for studies. As a first homework assignment, the student receives literature and links to video lessons, with which he will be acquainted before the start of the course.

Pre-course

Are you not familiar with Photoshop? Pre-course includes two weeks of preparation, for which you will learn all the necessary techniques in Photoshop to create beautiful interfaces. Useful information only.

Module 1. Promo-site

We start with the right things: the ability to hear the client, understand the audience of the project, come up with a solution, design it first on paper, and then in the graphics editor. In this module we go through the basic design themes for creating a layout: composition, color, grid, navigation, typography. Instead of wandering in details, students will manage gestalt principles of visual design, Nielsen’s heuristics for interfaces, and principled approaches to building navigation.

At the end of the module, students will develop a unique design solution for the real client, test it and defend their results.

Tools: Photoshop, Sketch App, InVision, Power Point, Adobe Kuler, paper, markers.

Module 2. Admin Panel

This time, the tasks become more complicated, and we will start to create not pages of the selling site, but a real admin panel with many features and pages. We begin with more advanced UX techniques, and then we will analyze the psychology of human perception, the features of human memory and vision. For better understanding of the design building blocks, we will firstly understand the objects, hierarchies, and properties. We will learn how a person searches for the necessary information, how this person discards the unnecessary one. Also in this module we will study data visualization, laws by Walt Disney, animation of interfaces.

At the end of this module, students will design the admin panel and defend it before the client. And, of course, add this work to their portfolios.

Tools: Photoshop, Sketch App, InVision, InVision Studio, Power Point, paper, markers.

Module 3. Mobile application

This module is built around design development for various platforms: from mobile applications to AR / VR design. The main focus will be on the development of mobile application. We will learn to understand the developers, correctly represent the results of their work, and learn the basics of HTML / CSS. The final part of the module will be devoted to the preparation of your portfolio, effective methods of presenting yourself and your work, conducting interviews in front of the employers.

To complete the course, we will present our designs to the client, prepare the portfolio, finalize the design of our start-up (Global Project) and meet with potential employers.
