Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to design an app?

In this three-hour workshop led by UX Engineer Joshua Litchfield, you'll learn how to design an app prototype from start to finish. From conceptualization to a low-fidelity mock-up—no coding skills are necessary.

Designers and innovators use Design Thinking and team sprints to answer critical business and social questions through user research, design, and testing. Working with a team of people from different industries and backgrounds, you’ll learn the basics of user experience design and engage in the multi-step Design Thinking process.

GOALS/HIGHLIGHTS

After this three-hour hands-on workshop, you’ll leave the evening with:

  • A deeper knowledge of design thinking and how to develop an idea

  • How to design a product and test its potential in under two hours

  • Further developed skill in design thinking and building mobile-first projects
