Accomplishments

User experience has become the most important factor for designing successful digital products. The quality of the user experience determines whether websites, apps and software are used or not. User experience design has therefore become a key factor, a touch on the scales. An excellent “user experience” ensures satisfied users, creates better customer loyalty, increases credibility, ensures positive reception in media and app stores and enhances a company’s reputation.

What to expect in this ux training

The profession of the user experience designer has become increasingly differentiated. Knowledge and skills in the professions UX Design, Usability and Interaction Design are more important and in demand than ever. It is becoming more and more important to apply the methods of these disciplines in a concentrated form in order to quickly come to pragmatic solutions and to develop them iteratively. In the spirit of the Lean UX and Agile UX mindsets, we will familiarize you with the development of user scenarios, user story maps and content strategies to develop information architectures, wireframes and interactive prototypes, which will then be tested.
