Evening Short Course

Next Course Begins: 28 October 2019
Length of Course: 4 Weeks
An introduction to UX Design

A User Experience Designer is focused on how a website **feels**
The responsibility of a UX designer is to make sure a website flows logically. UX Designers are in a way like mini-psychologists, they ask questions that are routed in Behavioural Psychology, in order to understand better what people do when it comes to using digital platforms. They also do what is known as Beta-Testing, so the UX designer can gain a better understanding of how people are interpreting and interacting with the intended communication.

UX is the first step in the creation of a website. The students will gain a deeper understanding into the methodologies used to create and test the User Experience, to enhance the design and provide a better end product for both the client and the end user.

Pierre Marqua

Pierre began his career in digital design in 2001. “Teaching is pure passion, it brings a deep sense of job satisfaction when you see the light bulbs go on.”

Please note all our lecturers work as a team, and are booked based on their independent schedules. As such, course allocations are subject to change.

I have done short courses at a different institution before and I must say that my experience at Friends of Design was infinitely better. The lecturer was great, very informative and always willing to help. Even though I had a very good understanding and a lot of experience in After Effects before the course I found that I learnt a lot regardless and got and even better understanding of the program which is what I wanted to achieve. I actually wish the course had been a week or two longer just to gain more knowledge but I think I’ll have to come back to Friends of Design for a different course.
