Having Nevan as a teacher has been a great pleasure. He is very professional and on top of that, a fabulous person. I learned a lot from him during the Bootcamp. He gave me tips that I'll keep in mind both professionally and personally. I'm sure this Bootcamp would have been very different without him. Honestly, for me, he is a 10.

Course overview

Over 12 weeks, you will work to explore methods and grow your skills as a designer. Toward the beginning of the course, we will hold your hand and provide more structure while working through new processes for the first time. As the course advances, we will explore more deeply in more specialized techniques, while you take the wheel in driving your iterative process.

By the end of the course, you should feel confident to indepently execute on a sophisticated and realistic product design process, and proactively ask for the support you need to make stronger decisions and improve your designs.

Design Process

We start by jumping into the full design process, using all of the key ingredients of human centered design. Our goal is to start building ways of thinking that will allow us to improve our strategic design thinking skills.

We’ll learn about

  • Iterative design
  • User interviews
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Usability testing
  • Presenting design
  • Figma basics

Interaction Design

With a solid handle on design process, we dig deeper into designing to support interactions between humans and computers, with a focus on mobile apps. We will learn common user interface and interaction patterns, and start thinking about interactive systems as opposed to individual screens.

We’ll learn about

  • User interface elements
  • Mobile navigation
  • Interface layout
  • Typography
  • Color systems
  • Desirability testing

Information Architecture

Finally, we will work together to bring more structure and meaning to the content and information people will access in our products. We will explore how users think about information they seek so that we can design experiences that feel intuitive and expected.

We’ll learn about

  • Navigation
  • Mental models
  • Card sorting
  • Tree testing
  • Content modelling
  • User flows

Capstone Project

For the capstone project, you’ll bring together everything you’ve learned to research and design a web application from scratch! These projects will be reviewed individually with a senior product designer in the industry to evaluate your progress.

Client Project

You will work with a team of classmates to do a design project based on a brief from a real company. During this process you’ll apply research, findings, and the design process you’ve learned throughout the program in collaboration with your client to deliver a valuable design recommendation.

Portfolio

In the final stage of the course, we will work together to prepare for your job search. During this time, you’ll create a first version of your portfolio, prepare for design challenges and interviews, and set up your strategy for tracking your job applications.

Schedule

As an intensive bootcamp program, this course needs your full attention. Every day we’ll be learning new things, working together, and advancing on projects.

You’ll also spend time on evenings to advance your projects, and to read and do other practice assignments. It’s a big committment!

We will all be together Monday through Friday, from 9am to 6pm. Here’s what a day of life in the bootcamp might look like:
