Designed to provide graduates with an in-depth understanding of the core skills, tools, and technologies to succeed in a career as a UX/UI Designer.

Interface and experience design are defining elements in how a product or service will be perceived by the end user. Designing experiences goes beyond just how the product looks: it starts with identifying human needs, and ends with the creation of pixel-perfect interfaces. With today’s growing consumer expectations of flawless, high quality experiences, the caliber of the design can be what makes or breaks the success of a business.

A great digital designer has UX & UI skills and is able to design any website or app from scratch. This 96-week program (focused on UI + UX) was designed to teach you the skills and knowledge needed to create delightful visual designs that are true to the brand while balancing seamless interactivity and ease of navigation for apps and websites.

Throughout the first 48 weeks of the Full-Stack Designer Program, you will engage in the creative process and learn how to apply human-centric design principles to create engaging user interfaces for apps and websites. You will learn the technical aspects of UX and UI Design while simultaneously building the skills to work on multidisciplinary teams in an agency, start up, or freelance environment. You will then begin a 48 week paid internship during which you will continue to apply the skills you learned in the program.

By enrolling in the course, you will learn from top industry professionals, engage in real world projects with community partners, team up with students from our other RED Academy programs, network and build connections with hiring partners and professionals in the design, technology and start-up industries, and build a robust portfolio with tangible results to jumpstart your career as a UX/UI Designer.

UI/UX design has so many opportunities moving forward! UI Designers have the unique opportunity to design how a brand looks and feels while focusing on translating a story for the brand.

I believe that increasingly, people are realizing how good design can impact their organization and have started investing more on how they want their brand to stand out through design.
