Who is a UX Designer, and what does a UX Designer do?

Who is a UX Designer, and what does a UX Designer do?

A UX Designer is a professional who successfully creates great user experiences for customers. They know their users and work alongside them – through research and continuous testing – to create experiences that give the desired result.

Are UX jobs in demand?
The UX job market has grown over 70 % in the last year, and it is showing no signs of slowing down.

It offers great opportunities for career advancement. From an entry-level position to a highly specialized role, you have the opportunity to scale your career with UX skills, leading to more responsibilities. It’s also a vital skill set for anyone who has dreamt of having their own website, app or e-commerce.

This course is the perfect opportunity to understand the behind-the-scenes of the world of User Experience. During 6 weeks, you will learn the fundamentals of UX and Graphic Design, as well as the latest tools to help you kickstart a career in UX Design.

By the end of the course, you will:

  • Learn to go through the steps of a Design sprint, from understanding the problems your users are experiencing, to empathising with your users to decide exactly what problem to solve, to ideating for solutions, choosing one to prototype and finally testing it and iterating the entire process to make it even better.
  • Understand why consumers do as they do. How do we get to know our users better and test the behavioral design of our target audience? You will also learn about nudging and how it is used in an ethical manner.
  • Learn how to carry out user research and report findings. Get to know your users, their needs and challenges using surveys and interviews. Ask the right questions using techniques like “The Mom Test”, and learn to analyze the results of your research.
