"Excellent course, exactly what I needed to build UI/UX momentum for my product. I cranked through it in less than 2 hours and I'm ready to take my product to the next level." -Andrew Beinbrink
"This was a fantastic course & experience - one that I will continue to use and refine. It was more than worth the cost and time invested. Amir explains "the process" in a very simple, clear & concise manner, and had just the right amount of detail. I was so inspired that I scrapped my original MVP design and followed the step by step process. What a HUGE improvement! I now have a REAL product that I am proud of. Amir also makes himself very accessible and is very responsive. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this course." - Stacey Arbetter
"Most hands-on tutorials in UX so far!" - Arti Villa

Do you believe that great user experience is a competitive advantage, and want to learn how to design your own product? Ever had a great idea for a web or mobile app, but didn’t really know how to start? Or are you wasting a lot of time and money on freelancers that aren’t producing the results you’re expecting?
This step by step course takes you from the idea stage into creating a simple and intuitive user experience blueprint. There is no theory involved, and no use of design jargon. In this course, I demonstrate how I move from the idea stage and through the various steps of designing the user experience, then I provide you with actions to follow at the end of each step. No creative skills needed, and no design tools required. Just a pen and paper or a whiteboard and markers, and you’re all set to go.
By following the simple steps provided in this course, you’ll create your user experience in one week!
This is the sample application idea that we will be designing throughout the course
Many thanks to Vladmir Dubovskiy for creating this diagram
User stories are a great way to capture the high level concepts, goals, and interactions within the system. Here's how you create them.
This course was a great intro into the world of UX. I've been wanting to crossover into this field for sometime and now I feel comfortable making that transition. All the concepts were broken down into manageable steps and the websites he recommended were really helpful and inspiring.
Extremely clear and effective methodology shared by Amir. Highly recommend this course.
The course is fine and the trainer walks you through the process of putting your web site idea into a tangible and structured diagrams and sketches . What i liked about it : it is all practical and hands on. What i didn't like : 1- I think it is slightly overpriced. 2- Lecture 10 had an incorrect summary which he promised to fix long time ago but unfortunately it is still unfixed.
I enjoyed the flow of this course and thought that the screen capture of the design process were great. I am completely new to user experience design but was able to catch on quickly. I was able to apply what I learnt here to create a prototype that was presented as part of a business plan at university. I will definitely be watching some of these videos again to improve my skills as we plan on having our app developed!
Very effective course. The content and methodology are very straight forward and solid. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in properly figuring out and putting together their ideas into documents and prototypes needed to take your idea to product. Thank you, this has been very useful to me!
