Introduction to User Experience Design

  • The Office Project G/F Alpha Salcedo Condominium Bautista St. Makati City Philippines (map)

Learn the basics of User Experience in one day. 

User Experience (UX) is a hot topic for any business wanting to improve the way they attract and retain customers.

UX is central to designing meaningful experiences that matter to customers. When done right, you will understand your customers better, improve the customer experience and see opportunities for new products and services.

This bootcamp is fast-paced, hands-on and interactive. It has been designed to focus on “learning by doing” rather than “learning by listening”. 

In a team-based scenario, participants are given a “Design Challenge” and led through a four step UX design process to solve it:

  1. Discover - Identify the core problem
  2. Design - Generate concepts
  3. Prototype - Test and validate designs
  4. Evaluate - Iterate and refine your ideas
