What People are Saying
“Taking the UI Design program at BrainStation is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. User Interface is a great way to get started in the digital design industry. In the beginning, I had very little to no knowledge about designing websites, but by the end, I started putting together robust, high-fidelity webpages and prototypes from scratch.”
James, Vancouver, Course Report
“This not only taught me fundamental design principles and best practices but also how to use some of the best tools in the industry.”
Guillermo, Vancouver, Course Report
“As a graphic designer, I wanted to expand my skill set and knowledge into the realms of digital design, and the course was perfect. I also found the course content very engaging, on top of being informative.”
Rachele, Vancouver, Course Report
“I decided to take this course as I have been exposed to many bite-sized pieces of design knowledge — from learning about human-centered design through my work in the social impact sector to working with UX/UI Designers. Thinking how to build my UI Design knowledge base prompted me to enroll, and It’s been great applying that knowledge every day!”
