Learning UI Design can be tough

Most of our students have some design experience, but struggle to learn UI design alone. Others are complete beginners. These same students have gone on to be successful UI designers through the help of our courses and mentors.

We believe anyone can learn how to design intuitive user interfaces with the right mentor and course plan.

I tried other online courses before, but got stuck at some point and gave up. Due to the feedback loops with my CareerFoundry mentor, the scheduled sessions, which fit perfectly to my schedule, CareerFoundry helped me to overcome this challenge.

Build a Career You Love with CareerFoundry

I just want to start off by saying thank you. I have struggled for so long to find a passion for a career that I would love to do day in and day out. After experimenting with university and realizing that it wasn’t the right path for me to build a career and find a passion, I’ve looked all over the place, seeing if anything would interest me, but nothing did.

Then, after searching for hours on the internet to find something I could pursue and start to build a career with, I found CareerFoundry’s website. And let me tell you, I was so hesitant because who in the world would spend $2,400 on an online program that's only 6 months! I’m that type of person that would say “no way”. But when I started looking into UI/UX design and seeing what that career entails, it intrigued me so much because I’ve always had a passion for technology. So at that point I thought “ahh I might as well give CareerFoundry a try because they do offer your money back if you're not satisfied”.

So I signed up, paid the money and it was the best $2,400 I’ve ever spent - which for the amount of knowledge and experience I’ve gained really isn’t that much at all. I can’t begin to thank the group at CareerFoundry enough for this program.

Because of this program I've found my passion and a career that I will love. It's amazing and so is CareerFoundry.

I love it and I hope that someday I can work for CareerFoundry and inspire students the same way my Mentor did for me.

Learning something new all on your own is really hard. Trust me, I’ve been there. Ten years ago I set off on my journey to become a UI Designer and it wasn’t easy to say the least!

I was immediately discouraged by the amount of information and software tools that were out there. I found myself reading through so many different blogs that were usually out of date, googling terms I didn’t understand, and hoping someone who knew how to help me would fall out of the sky!

“It shouldn’t be this hard!” I remember shouting.

No one should have to go through what I did, so I decided to take everything I’ve learned over the past ten years and create the ultimate course on UI Design.

Maybe you’ve tried other courses but haven’t been able to truly understand the subject matter, or maybe you haven’t found the right mentor. With this course, all that is about to change.

With 3 billion users on the web today and over 4 billion on mobile devices, it’s no surprise that UI designers are in huge demand. Someone has to design all of those apps! Whether you’re looking to upskill or even start a whole new career, our mentored online course will give you the skills you need so you can hit the ground running as a UI Designer.

And we’ve created this course so that you don’t have to have any prior design experience--so even if you're a complete beginner, you’re covered.

From day one you’ll be getting deep into the software, learning key elements of design like color theory, mood, hierarchy, mobile design and more. And by the end of the course, you’ll have a job ready portfolio to show for it.

This is all backed by our proven learning method which focuses on project-based, hands-on learning, as well as a vibrant community of mentors and peers. No matter what questions you have, we’ll help you find the answer.

Thanks so much for joining us. See you on the course!
