The crash course helped me understand what UX is and how it can be applied almost anywhere! It was totally empowering to build a mini app that solved an urgent problem in just a few days!

Why this course?

Over the years, we've had countless conversations with designers—graphic, visual, UI designer, etc.

They love being creative every single day.
P.S. We feel the same way ❤️
But they get seriously burned out because:

1. They struggle with overcoming stakeholder subjectivity 😤

2. They don’t feel valued and well-compensated for their work 😓

3. They’re asked to do more and more (Constantly learn new skills, wear many hats, take on more projects, etc.) 😮‍💨

Ultimately, that's when the graphic designers we've talked to have lost passion for the field and wonder if UX is right for them.

A free UX course can also provide you with those vital building blocks you can develop if you decide to pursue a career in this field. But, of course, you’ll have to find the best free course that will equip you with the necessary skills.

Is UX design a good career?

Plus icon

In our humble opinions, hell yes!

UX design is a great career for various reasons. First, the demand for UX designers is high. Companies across many industries are actively looking for UX designers to help boost the user experience of their applications and websites.

High demand for these skills means that the compensation is good. Glassdoor reports the average salary of UX designers in the US is around $90,000 per year. That’s almost twice the average salary of graphic designers.

Furthermore, UX design is a career that allows you to work from anywhere in the world. Many companies are okay with their UX designers working remotely. This is a career worth considering if you want to make money from home or anywhere else in the world.

Another reason to consider this career path is how satisfying it can be. Designing something that delivers a great user experience is incredibly fulfilling. Plus, there are many UX design areas you can specialize in. You could focus on being a UX researcher, strategist, architect, analyst, etc. As you progress in your user experience design career, you can find many opportunities that align with your passion and interests.

Can I teach myself UX design?

Plus icon

Yes, you can teach yourself UX design. From courses like this to YouTube tutorials to blogs and email courses, many resources help you learn UX design at your own pace.

However, one of the most important factors to learning is mentorship. So if you decide to go it on your own, find someone in the industry who is willing to take you under their wing and give you feedback.

Also, it is good to learn UX design with other people or at least from a course that has an active community. This will help you find networks that will benefit you down the road. These networks can help you secure your first gig, for example, and avoid common missteps. That’s critical since getting a UX design job without real-world experience can be a headache.

Moreover, the sense of belonging that comes with joining a community can help you fall in love with this career. Therefore, be sure to find a good UX design community if you decide to learn user experience design on your own.

Is it easy to learn UX design?

Plus icon

Learning UX design is not easy. The difficulty of the process will depend on factors like where you are transitioning from. For example, you will find the transition pretty smooth if you have a development background. UX design will feel like an extension of your previous career. 

There are also many people transitioning from graphic design into UX design. The background knowledge and experience in creating elegant designs smoothens the transition of graphic designers. However, they’ll still need to move out of their comfort zones to master the technical side of UX design.

Another factor that can determine how easy it is to learn UX design is your motivation or inspiration. Learning UX design will be a fun adventure if you are motivated enough.

What skills will you gain from a UX design course?

Plus icon

A good UX design course equips you with technical and soft skills. Technical skills include research, information architecture, wireframing, prototyping, and usability testing. Some courses will also teach you UI design since most UX job requirements ask for UI design skills.

As for the soft skills, you will learn about collaboration, empathy, communication, team management, and project management.

Our free 7-day course is meant as a primer for a few of these skills. It'll be up to you to continue to learn and cultivate new skills and methodologies.
