Our instructor... was clear, detail oriented, and made the learning environment safe and collaborative. We got a lot of real world examples from him, and all the little details he shared made this entire course special, and more than simply reading a textbook.

Overall, I'm a big advocate for Brainstation's courses - they've proved to be extremely valuable in my career.

The highlight for me was the moment when it clicked that I definitely wanted to pursue design – it was 3:00 AM, while I was sitting in my bed, furiously working away in Sketch on my final project. I realized I was doing all of this work purely out of my own free will because I was passionate about it... These projects helped me build a strong portfolio to land the job I dreamed of.

UX Design Certification FAQs

UX Design Basics

What Is the Difference Between UI and UX design?

UX design is the craft of making a user's experience as effective, efficient, and pleasant as possible, especially when interacting with digital products. UI design, on the other hand, refers to all the visual design elements the users of a website, mobile apps, or piece of software (or mobile device, or even appliance) interact with.

Essentially, UX design refers to the process of designing products with the user in mind. UX design has proven critical in mobile app design, smart watches, and even physical objects.

The "UI" in "UI design" stands for "user interface." UI design, therefore, has a narrower focus than UX design, which concerns a user's entire journey from beginning to end. These two specialties must work seamlessly together to create a strong user experience.
