Increase Your Value

So you’re designing a website- but will it work?

And we’re not talking about being a functional website for your client.

Will it meet the needs of the end-user? Will it anticipate their behavior, understand what makes them tick, and give your clients the real results their looking for- delighted users who keep coming back and engaging?

Sure, you can get a ready-made template, slap in some copy and images and send that invoice along, but most clients with some Googling skills can do this without you. Yikes!

There’s a whole lot more to designing digital experiences- and a whole lot more money to be made developing websites and apps once you tap into the power of User-Experience Design.

Design with Intention

Deliver Impactful Digital Experiences

Imagine knowing exactly how to design a client’s website or app because you know exactly what their end-user wants and needs.

Imagine the satisfaction your clients will have when they realize how successful their launch is- and all while not overspending.

Wait- what’s that we hear? Sounds like referrals coming your way, case studies getting published that show real results, dollar signs in your bank account, and opportunities knocking on your door.

Ready to drive immediate impact like this for your clients? Well this workshop gives you a solid foundation to begin your UX Design journey. In this workshop you’ll:

  • Identify how to launch a UX Design strategy to solve a design challenge so you can kickstart your UX services
  • Understand how to design with people’s behavior in mind so you can set your clients’ minds at ease, knowing their launch will “work”
  • Use key UX Design methods to solve a real problem for people so your designs increase your value
  • Create UX Design assets that can influence overall business objectives so you can deliver not just great designs but great results
who this is for

Increase your opportunities and future-proof your career.

Heard about this newfangled thing called the tech industry? Yeah- it’s not going anywhere. And while the tech industry continues to grow, so do the opportunities of a UX designer, whether you’re a one-person powerhouse for small startups or part of dynamic UX team in a large corporation. Or maybe you’ll become a UX specialist who larger teams bring on for your expertise in one aspect of the process- talk about really increasing your value!

Whatever your UX Design path, this workshop will give you the foundations you need to get going!
