 “Attractive things work better” [D. Norman]. Therefore, an appealing
visual design for websites and apps should be of interest to anyone
involved in creating them.

Visual design is not something magic.

Our course helps you to better understand the principles of design. No
particular design talent is required.

We break visual design down into small chunks and introduce them
step-by-step including multiple hands-on exercises. For the exercises you
can use whichever tool you are most familiar with (Powerpoint, Keynote,
Sketch, Illustrator or Photoshop).

You will learn:

   - The basic elements of visual design (typography, icons, color, layout)
   and guidelines how to use them to create an appealing design.
   - Principles of design and how they apply to visual design.
   - To see and recognize good design.
   - To better understand and communicate with design experts.

Everybody is welcome to this course. It is a beginners course and most
valuable for practitioners such as user experience professionals, software
engineers or product managers, as well as for researchers and students in
the field of human-computer interaction.

Want to join us? Great!
