Achievement 1

Recreating an Existing Interface

Using your working knowledge of essential Sketch features and functions, you’ll recreate the user interface for a travel app. This Achievement offers the opportunity to dive right in and practice fundamental design skills before you begin work on your own projects later on in the course.

Achievement 2

Conceptualization of Design Principles

With knowledge of design theory, principles, patterns, and mediums, you’ll build a mobile app from scratch for your Student Project 1. You will develop wireframes of low-, mid-, and high-fidelity, before finalizing the UI for your app in Sketch.

Achievement 3

User Experience

You’ll incorporate basic principles of user experience (UX) design to determine and solve challenging UI problems. You’ll also conduct user research and create user personas for the app you will be building in Achievement 4.

Achievement 4

Design Workflow

You’ll create a solid workflow for your app, taking the design project all the way from the requirements phase to the design, critique, and iterate loop. With the requirements in hand, you’ll also be designing a mood board, mockups, and the main screens of your app.

Achievement 5

Mobile App Design for iPhone and Android

Based on existing specs and your knowledge of design patterns of specific platforms (e.g. iOS or Android), you will wireframe and design a complete mobile meeting management app and/or an app of your choice.

Achievement 6

A Complete Application

You'll create an app from top to bottom starting with gathering requirements, developing user stories, wireframing, and iterating through the design/critique loop until the project is complete and ready for production. You will also consolidate your work throughout course into a complete portfolio (i.e. 6 apps + 1 redesign) and create cohesive branding for yourself as a UI designer.
