Why take this course and how much time does it take to complete?
UI/UX designers are in high demand in the tech industry. Glassdoor estimates the average salary for a UI/UX designer to be $90,000/year. Getting one of these jobs is usually based solely on portfolio projects (which you will get in this course) rather than which prestigious school you went to and what your GPA was.
Our course includes over 30 hours of video plus exercises for you to complete on your own. Most people take between one and two months to finish the course if they work consistently. However, you have lifetime access so you can move at your own pace and really master design.
Do I have to purchase Sketch?
Sketch 3 comes with a 2-week free trial period, however, it costs $99 for lifetime access (as opposed to the Adobe Creative Cloud which costs upwards of $20/month). If you are serious about designing your own interfaces or becoming a professional designer, we think the $99 investment is more than fair.
What are the technical requirements to take the course?
Sketch 3 requires OS X 10.8+.
Do I need any previous design experience?
No design experience is needed. You don't even have to be artistic. We'll teach you everything you need to know to get you designing your own apps.
