This isn't a typical, theory-heavy course. At Bitmaker General Assembly, you'll develop your design chops with hands-on assignments everyday. You bring it all together in a comprehensive portfolio project that demonstrates your new skills and design thinking.
Visual design can separate a delightful experience from a merely adequate one. Use typography, color, contrast, and more to your advantage.
Research and Planning
A “good idea” isn't good enough. You need to truly understand your users and put their needs at the core of your decision-making to craft a solution you can execute.
Getting your users painlessly from “A” to “B” can be harder than it sounds. Design engaging user journeys through clear communication and delightful interactions.
Polish, growth, and putting it all together
Take user feedback into your process and integrate your efforts into a cohesive product. Practice rational design thinking to solve problems and validate your solutions.
