World finally understands the essential role of design. Products look better than ever, interfaces feel intuitive, and companies are hiring designers at an increasing rate. But, the designer’s role has been changing over last few years. It’s no longer enough to iterate and understand your user, instead in today’s world, designers should be able to do both – identify problems and build solutions, which will increase their worth by at least 10 times for any company. When you can do both, you can do things that no one else can do and you will be a unique asset in your company.

There’s a shift under way in large organizations, one that puts design much closer to the center of the enterprise. But the shift isn’t about aesthetics. It’s about applying the principles of design for better user experience. This new approach is in large part a response to the increasing complexity of modern technology and modern business. 

Most people don't think about how poorly designed everyday interactions are until they learn the principles of good design and user experience, many of which are not intuitive. You don't need to be born thinking about this stuff in order to become a successful designer, it's a skill that can be developed like anything else. Passion often follows from knowledge and expertise.

 

In this course, I have explained the entire design process which when integrated into your product can create an amazing user experience. You will also learn to approach a problem in a systematic manner. Working in a series is the most important stage of the design process. The ability to experiment, to value and learn from mistakes, and build on the experience achieved is the hallmark of a the truly successful and creative individual, whatever the field.

  So, what are you waiting for?? Get Enrolled and start your journey today… Happy learning my dear friends. See you in the course

Master Digital Product Design: UX Research & UI Design

A complete design education for product designers: Research the user experience, then design a great user interface

Digital products are more abstract and complex than any product we've designed before. People are using their digital devices faster, with less conscious thought and more distracted than ever in history.

These issues present new challenges that require a new kind of design team to address. These design teams need to understand a complex range of behavioral psychology, perception, creativity, business. They need to understand what has come before, the history of design didn't start with the iPhone. The history of product design started with the history of products!

I created this course out of frustration. Frustration that design education has been reduced to a handful of feal good quotes, an ineffective standardised design process, unquestioned research activities and no mention of philosophy or critical thought. We are designing the most complex product in history for the most distracted users. We're expecting designers to work with an embarrassingly narrow understanding of design. I had to create this course for them, I had to create The Master Digital Product Design Course because no one else was doing it ;)

The Master Digital Product Design Course will give you everything you need to start designing products people love. It will take time and I advise you to work through all the exercises over a period over several months, leaving time for reflection and experimentation. This is not a fast track to any design job, this is a slow track to a great career.

What do I get with this course?

This course comprises of 12 modules, each around an hour long. Each module contains high-quality explainer videos with multiple activities and downloadable worksheets. Every video has resource links for further reading to ensure you get a range of opinions and allow you to dig deeper into topics that interest or apply to you.

The modules will cover a unique range of topics that I believe are missing from the majority of modern design curriculums. The 12 sections are:

  • Introduction: background into the industry and some of the problems

  • What is Design?: looking at, where design came from and some misconceptions about how to design

  • Design Process: the elements of a design process. You'll then create your design process

  • Critical Thinking: the core skill to design effectively, how to challenge ideas, especially your own

  • Experience Economy: experience is vital to create products people love, yet most people are ignoring it!

  • Creativity: you can learn to be creative, I'll show you what it is and how to get it!

  • Perception: looking at how people see the world and how we can design for them (people)

  • Usability: let's make sure your product is easy to use and doesn't frustrate

  • Figma: is a rapid design and prototyping tool, you'll learn to mock up your designs

  • Form & Function: why your product has to look good and what to do about it

  • Minimalism: minimalism is hard and we often get it wrong

  • Balance: you can have too much of anything. lets balance standards with trends

Is this course for me?

I created The Master Digital Product Design Course to fill many of the holes in other product design courses, for this reason, I believe it'll be useful for a seasoned designer.  I've also created it with the beginner in mind so if you have never designed anything you will be just at home (and everyone has designed something before, you just don't know it!).

As well as designers I also had in mind all the people who project manage, own or develop digital products. I believe there is a lot of interesting materials that will help the whole business think differently about creating digital products.

Or if either of these describe you, this course is for you:

  • you’re already a web designer, but you haven’t been able to grow and scale your business

  • you’re just starting out and you want to do things the right way the first time (I didn’t, but with this you will)

Hello and welcome to “User Experience - Applied Research and Design”. I put together this course because I know there are a lot of workers out there who’ve never done UX, but would like to learn the profession. At the same time, the demand for well trained UX researchers and designers continues to grow. Often times, a lot of aspiring UX professionals or even the companies that wish to employ such professionals, don’t truly understand what’s involved. UX is more than nice graphics! UX is about creating products that are easy to use and please the user. UX is about understanding user needs and how the product can meet their needs. It is about how the users interact with information and how they navigate the design. This course aims to reveal the extent of the UX process, and to provide a comprehensive resource which practitioners can use as a model when undertaking their own UX projects.

Becoming a UX professional is easier for some, then for others. Individuals with experience related to social science research or technology may have a big advantage. Anyone with a background in web development, software development, graphic design, research, psychology, engineering or business analysis: is especially well suited. My goal was to create a course that would offer a fast, but comprehensive overview of the UX research and design process.

The first part of the course starts out with an introduction to UX, but quickly ramps up to to present the intermediate and advanced process behind UX. You will gain an understanding of what is involved in UX research and UX design. You will learn how to conduct interviews, evaluate products, and analyze products using principles of design. You will also learn about the creation of prototypes of low fidelity, medium fidelity and at high fidelity. The second part of the course showcases a lengthy and significant UX design project where learners are able to see the type of analysis, research and process required in an applied UX project. The entire process from initial concept through to finished prototype will be demonstrated. You will gain access to professional resources in the form of research reports. The reports can be used as a guide or template for your own UX project development. By reviewing five different phases of a UX project, you will learn what reports/deliverables are expected as part of a major product design endeavour.

Product Design Management for Agile Practitioners

Application of product design management principles, concepts, tools and techniques in agile product management

Agile software development practices and product management borrow a number of concepts from the domain of traditional product design and manufacturing engineering, for example, lean development, Kanban and more.

However, it is quite common for organisations who implement agile methodologies, like Scrum, to hold the illusion that these would act as the silver bullet to resolve all the weaknesses in their software development and management practices.

The reality is, this is far from being the case! To be able to conceive and foster great software products, the way they are engineered ought to be based on the kinds of theoretical and practical underpinnings that are inherent of traditional branches of engineering. This way, the sufficient level of rigour can be achieved to permit the evolution of well-rounded and well-engineered software products that deliver value to stakeholders and customers.

This is where product design management can be leveraged to revitalise and complement agile software development practices. Product design management may be seen as an enterprise philosophy and a multi-disciplinary management framework that fosters the embodiment, the deployment and gradual improvement of the products that the enterprise develops, grows and retires over time.

Aspiring to proper product design management in the world of agile software development demands not only the right mindset as individuals, but also the use of suitable tools as well as the skills to apply a range of appropriate techniques. This course will shed light on a set of important tools and techniques to support strategic and tactical agile product management.

The course is chiefly targeted at agile practitioners, for example, product managers, product owners, business analysts, agile project managers, etc. The course may also be taken if you have an interest in applied product design management, provided you have had some prior basic exposure to agile software development or have worked within an agile business.

What this course is NOT about:

  • NOT a course in agile methodologies, agile manifesto, Scrum, Kanban, user story mapping, velocity charts, etc.

  • NOT a course about interaction or user experience design

With the growing trend of buyers asking for value-added services, only factories who can offer design and product development services can compete in the global arena. Garment manufacturers have to develop their own product development team to meet their buyers’ requirements. It is also imperative to create the most relevant collection in the shortest time for the buyers, as lead time gets shorter. Product development is not just about the creation of new samples – it has to meet the criteria and the needs of the buyers. This course covers the various aspect of product development. From understanding the customers to the creation of design, articulate the various elements of product development and how to meet these challenges in the shortest possible time while giving the buyers the right product at the right time.

Advanced Product Design Techniques with Siemens Solid Edge

3D Printing a Classical Guitar with Sub-D Modeling and Generative Design

Find out how new engineering design methods like Sub-Division Modeling, 3D Printing, Generative Design and Synchronous Technology can help you develop prototypes faster along with how to validate a concept as quickly as possible and the issues of 3D Printing larger parts.   

Much of the class focuses on Sub-D modeling. The Solid Edge subdivision modeling environment generates a stylized body using a polygonal cage to control its shape. By continuously manipulating and subdividing the cage, you can add greater levels of detail and control until you have the shape you desire. Subdivision modeling provides a higher level of control than using polygons alone. It allows sharp edges in conjunction with smooth flowing surfaces.  With Sub-D modeling you can develop distinctively unique products based on organic shapes without the need for expert knowledge. Solid Edge subdivision modeling includes tools that provide advanced capabilities for shape creation, manipulation, and analysis. These tools allow anyone, even beginners, to quickly and easily create high-quality advanced shapes based on complex geometry.

If you are looking for more details on Generative Design take a look at my Udemy class: Generative Modeling - Designer Based Structural Optimization.  This class starts with the basics and works its way up to more complex examples.
