Our curriculum is ahead of the curve and prepares students for a career in UX / UI or digital Product Design.

Great design starts with research. Students will learn how to frame research questions and how to choose qualitative and quantitative methods to answer them. They will also develop their skills in synthesizing data, identifying opportunities, and presenting their findings.

Foundational research means collecting various types of data points to improve or create a digital product. One example is conducting market research and user interviews to add a new mobile app feature.

Students will get to leverage their creativity and problem solving skills to ideate and innovate solutions for the product. Students will learn the importance of sketching and rapid prototyping to evaluate early ideas.

Ideation and Innovation are steps within the Product Design process to constantly look for ways to improve the product. By rapidly sketching out ideas in a brainstorm, students are able to provide different avenues to solve a problem.

Students will learn the principles of User Interface (UI) Design. From discovering what visual designs draw user’s attention to the best practices for content layout, students will begin to master visual composition to effectively communicate through fonts, shapes, lines, colors, images and negative space.

Example: Compiling images and designs into a grid layout for a mobile app

Students will dive into color theory and typography. Students are encouraged to seek instructor feedback to continually refine their skills in applying color themes to the elements of a UI, creating visual balance, emphasis, organization, and direction of a product.

Typography and Color are main components of the User Interface, which is meant to simplistically communicate thoughts and ideas in an impactful way.

Students will be introduced to interaction and animation principles as they dive deeper into how detailed designs can turn a good digital product into a great one.
Interaction and Animation designed with the intent of making the user interface meaningful and simplistic will differentiate the product.

Students will learn how to organize and structure information in the most effective way by building clickable prototypes that present the interactions and navigation possibilities of a product.

Information design is the practice of presenting information in a way that reduces uncertainty and makes it accessible and easily understood by most users.

People consume information constantly–including instructions, figures, data, and tables. Designers must work with a set of defined objectives to ensure the right message is transmitted clearly and accurately.

What is Product Design?

“Products” can have many meanings, but at Flatiron School our Product Design course focuses on UX / UI design for digital products we interact with, such as websites or mobile applications. Product Design is a holistic role, one that has ownership over the entire UX and UI process. Coding knowledge is not required, though it can be helpful, which is why we teach HTML and CSS basics.
