All interfaces are not created equal.

In today's technologically-driven market, it's relatively easy to commission custom software. But is the user interface aesthetically appealing? Is it accessible and easy to use? Is the layout intelligent and is it efficient? These are the types of questions UX design aims to address. It doesn't just look at interface functionality, but at human psychology. It aims to understand how we respond to different interface designs, with the goal of creating ever more intuitive and pleasing user experiences.

"iX pushed me to make work that I had no idea I could make. We were taught by such amazing designers, and they held us to such a high standard and made us want to do really good work."

Improving non-profit usability

Example project you may work on

Your client is a non-profit organisation that provides support to victims of gender-based violence, as well as access to social justice. They’ve had extremely limited funding to date and operate simply off an old Wordpress site. They’ve noticed that visitors to their site access different pages, but seldom go on to seek access to social justice services or local welfare services. Working in teams, your task is to build a wireframe and prototype of a new site that will increase usage and access for all of the services provided by the non-profit.

"iXperience was a one-of-a-kind learning immersion. I gained experience and knowledge in ways I never had before. I can now say that I have incredible new skills and have used what I learned to make an impact at a startup company in Cape Town."

Thoughts
from our alumni.

Molly Fox
Colgate University, Class of 2016

Initially I had thought, as I’d imagine many do, that user experience design is specific to technology, applied when designing a website or an app for instance. However, after my first class I realized it can really be applied to so much more; a brand, a service, or a product. In class we’re learning by actually doing.

Kwambata Ngatia
University of Chicago , Class of 2017

iX taught me to understand that UX design does not really require any new skills. Rather it focuses on using existing knowledge and applications to make things anew and/or better than they were before. It is closer to looking at the world through new and varying perspectives. This experience has been exciting, rewarding, and inspiring to see where this new-found perspective can bring me in the future.

Aishwarya Tare
University of Maryland, Class of 2022

I have never taken a bootcamp style program like this where I get to focus on skills in just one field all day everyday, so this is a great way way to learn, hone, and practice in just a matter of a few weeks. It is more effective than teaching yourself, and less time than taking a semester long course in college.

Kate Clawson
Tufts University, Class of 2021

The class definitely taught me a lot about design and the field, while giving me an idea as to what pursuing a career in design may be like and the skills needed.

Tuition and financial aid.

Since 2014, iX has dispersed more than $2 million in financial aid to enable access to our programs.
