  • Touch on essential design principles including composition, color theory, and typography.
  • Survey today’s digital design landscape and its career opportunities.
  • Step into the shoes of a UX/UI designer, learn more about what they do, and execute a creative brief.

Chart your own career path. Pick up where this workshop leaves off. Enhance your professional skill set in our part-time Visual Design workshop. Or, learn more about the design world in our User Experience Design workshops, on campus or online.
