UX Design Bootcamp Begins!

Evidence has shown that every dollar spent on User Experience Design brings in between $2 and $100 in return, and in 2016, the Future of Design in Start-Ups survey found that companies with the highest investment in UX saw their sales increase by 75%.

Over the next 18 weeks, a new cohort of students will master the brilliant basics of UX Design and learn how to create impactful, purposeful and beautiful experiences by taking part in the Talent Garden Innovation School UX Design Bootcamp. 

Talent Garden Innovation School Director, Ruth Kearney, said: “The demand for UX Design skills has never been higher. Increasingly, Graphic Designers, Web Developers, Software Engineers and Product Managers need to truly understand users before they can create the right solution. Bootcamp participants have the opportunity to work on an industry project with top-notch companies such as Dublin Airport Future Factory, Robotify and Marino Software. The output is tangible and the business impact is very real”.

The UX Design Bootcamp expert faculty members are committed to the student learning experience and take an action learning approach to teaching, by delivering interactive lectures and practical workshops that are grounded in theory, but focused on real-world application. Our faculty members include:
