Course: Designing a Mobile App!
The Art of UI is designed for those interested in creating user interface art for mobile apps, focusing on 2D art, illustration and graphic design. This introductory course provides a unique approach to app design, utilizing traditional design principles combined with conceptual design and illustrative techniques, allowing you to explore creation of your ideas from rough pencil sketches to finished interactive mockups. Class involves research, coming up with an idea, wire-framing an experience, and visual development techniques. You will create a light prototype, using from your designs as a proof of concept, rather than a functioning app. This course will give you greater insight into the mobile gaming and internet industries, user interface and experience design (UI/UX) and is intended to help you understand the principles and techniques necessary to approach app design under the high pressure of a production setting.
