Wish you had more flexibility and growth in your career?

Do you like psychology, design, and creative work?

If you can relate to the above, it might be time to consider a career change. UI designers have the advantage of being able to work remotely, freelance, and earn a great salary.

1. What exactly is UI design?

User interface designers—or UI designers for short—design websites and apps to ensure that they are intuitive to use and look appealing. They apply psychology, research and design principles for this crucial step.

3. What if I'm not talented at design?

UI designers follow a learnable process; you don't need to have any previous design experience, artistic talent, or coding skills to be a successful UI designer.

4. I'm very busy—can I still learn UI?

This free short course takes about 15 minutes a day for 7 days. If you decide later on that you want a full career-change package, our mentored UI Design Program takes 15 hours a week for 9 months.

UI Short Course reviews

It was great! Just detailed enough to get me interested and make me want to visit every link, but not so long that it felt overwhelming.

Helpful and informative. The links to real UI designers' portfolios were especially helpful to give an idea of what it takes to build one.

I enjoyed it! It gave me a more real-life experience than just a classroom experience.
