What is a UX Designer and what does a UX Designer do?
UX Designers ensure that the experience of a product is tailored to its application. Their task is to design a user interface that allows the user to explore a product from start to finish. To do this UX Designers use a wide variety of programs such as Photoshop, Sketch and Illustrator to create storyboards, wireframes, mockups and sitemaps and they verify the outcome with real users.
After this 12-week UX Design Bootcamp, you’ll know how to plan a design process that is human-centric. You’ll learn how to conduct user research and get to know your target audience – their tastes, preferences and needs – to tailor smooth user experiences. You will also be trained to identify problem areas and find creative solutions to turn new users into regular customers.

In only 12 weeks I had gained all the hard skills and soft skills to give me a real edge in my career as a junior digital professional. 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.
It's a perfect way to learn A LOT in a very short time. So if you want to skip university, just go to Talent Garden Innovation School. I also like that it's a new way of learning and studying and not old fashioned university style.
