User Experience (UX) Design Systems, and the Screen

This course will take a project brief through the process of research, design, and prototyping. Along the way, the class will support decisions by considering how real people use and respond to the design, and will keep accessibility and equity in mind from the beginning. The class will explore how design systems and re-usable components lead to thoughtful digital experiences, and how responsiveness, flexibility, and sustainability are fundamental to designing for screens and across platforms. / Each student will have access throughout the class to a lab workstation equipped with the latest software. / Open to students ages 18 and above. / View complete policies. / This course is included in MCAD's User Experience certificate.
