How to Become a UI Designer

How Long Does It Take to Become a UI Designer?

You can learn the skills needed to become a UI Designer in as little as 10 weeks, which is why it has become increasingly common for aspiring Designers to attend UI design courses and bootcamps. Courses like these provide more hands-on learning and targeted skills development, allowing you to build out your base of design knowledge; learn the fundamentals of UI research, ideation, wireframing, and prototyping; familiarize yourself with the tools a UI Designer uses; and even put together the basis for a professional portfolio.

Of course, mastering design can take years, but you can begin practicing design as soon as you’ve got a handle on the principles and basic tools, and grow from there.

Ultimately, how long it will take you to become a UI Designer depends to a large extent on the scope of your skills going into it. If you are already a Web Designer or Web Developer, it should take you much less time to acquire the specific skills you’ll need to call yourself a UI Designer than if you’re starting from scratch, with no background in design or development.

By continuing to practice your skills and polish your portfolio, you could be calling yourself a UI Designer in no time.
