  • Posted to Featured: Learn UI/UX Design Skills with Hands-On Projects & 1-on-1 Mentorship from Top Designers, in reply to Ollie Barker , Oct 05, 2015

    One of Designlab's co-founders here, thanks for the comments Ollie :)

    I think our Research & Strategy course is fairly unique in how process-based it is, by virtue of the subject matter. We feel like that’s what learning research is about — helping you pick up a toolkit of techniques and methods, so you have a systematic process to gain insight from your customers in the future. We do hope that the hands-on work in the course (creating a research plan, executing it, creating personas, empathy maps, etc.) helps you develop practical experience with these techniques moving forward. Here’s an example of the work you’ll create: trydesignlab.com/certificates/ux-research-strategy/kollaros/

    We’d love to see a full review when you’re done with the course! Here’s a recent review published by the team at UX Booth: www.uxbooth.com/articles/ux-research-course-review/. Happy to stick around and answer any questions folks might have!

    Sorry you feel that way! We decide to write our posts based on the most common questions we get from potential students.

    Right on.

    Curious, what does the "visual design" role entail for you now -- are you involved in interaction design work like putting together wireframes, user flows, etc.?

    Absolutely, most designers take this as a given.

    We're hoping to help beginners feel more comfortable diving into learning principles, without already having a thorough knowledge of Photoshop (and similar tools).
