What exactly is a UX Designer?
The UX designer is responsible for the user experience and thus for the experience of a product in the use of the application. The main task is to design a user interface that allows the user to have a great experience with a product from start to finish.
UX designers use various programs such as Photoshop, Sketch or Illustrator to create storyboards, wireframes, mockups and sitemaps and test the results with real users.
This Bootcamp will be your springboard into the world of beautiful and smooth user experience design!

I feel like the Talent Garden Innovation School is so different and special because they really give importance and pay attention to the students and our professional growth.
Giulia, Talent Garden Innovation School Alumna
The weeks at Talent Garden Innovation School were super intense: theoretical and practical lessons, the realization of a group project with a partner company and a personal project that I worked night and day on in the last two weeks. But they have also been amazing weeks: night-time dinners, organized events on campus and foosball matches during breaks. I also had the opportunity to
experience a trip experience: 5 days of full immersion, useful for getting to know important international companies and improving my skills in the field. I can't even count how many cool people I met during this journey.
Tommaso, Talent Garden Innovation School Alumnus
A perspective on the education that I wouldn’t otherwise get. Maybe I can also cooperate with Talent Garden or with some of the companies that we got to know here to actually become more professional in the way we are doing things.
Innovative spaces, the rooms, the people, and the whole information that gets transferred. I think it’s a really really good approach for people in our creative industry to get to know a lot of different things and new technologies.
It’s a perfect combination of so many aspects that provides a lot of chances for young people, especially students or newcomers in this whole working world. It is just the right thing for people who love challenges.
