About this workshop

This workshop gives you an introduction to the world of user experience design. By learning the basic theory and practical applications of designing for optimum usability, information architecture and interaction design, you’ll learn how to make digital products and services that your users love and that your organisation will profit from.

The workshop covers the entire design process. We begin with the fundamentals of user and business research, including how to draw out unspoken requirements from both groups. We move on to discuss ways to turn your research into design concepts, and tools that will help you structure the site and pin down its major elements. Finally, we look at how to make effective wireframes and prototypes, test them with users and improve your designs through iteration.
