</strong>Do you want to be one of the first to design for the Apple Watch? In this course you will learn how to create custom apps that fit the small display size of Apple's most intimate device.

No Photoshop experience necessary. I will teach you everything you need to know as we go through and actually design our interface.

The first step is a quick introduction of Photoshop and the tools we will be using most. We are going to cover the basics in under 20 minutes!

We will start by learning how to use mockups and quickly move into creating our own mockups. After that we will design a search and loading screen for our custom app concept.

The App we are designing is based off a very popular app that most people from all around the world have hear of.

After sinking our teeth into some design, we will go into the Human Interface Guidelines provided by Apple to get a better understanding of the Apple Watch anatomy.

Then it is back to designing. We will finish creating each individual screen for our app.

By the end of this course, you will have a great understanding of the individual elements that make up the Apple Watch interface, and how to design correctly. You will also have a great understanding of how to use Photoshop to accomplish UI tasks.

What are the requirements?

  • No previous knowledge is required but a working computer with an internet connection is required.

Instructor Biography

Andrew Eddy, Graphic Designer, Entrepreneur, & Instructor

I am a graphic designer, entrepreneur, and lead instructor at the Academy X design school. I am passionate about working with startups and have launched several successful businesses. Learn how to design from my "jump right in" teaching style.

"I am a nerd. I love everything technology, and making the virtual world a more beautiful place is my passion." -Andrew

I currently live in Atlanta, where I am the CEO of a security software company. I began designing mobile applications and websites in college. UX/UI design came so naturally that, I knew it was the career for me. I like to say I am a Economics major with a computer science addiction. I won the College of Charleston Entrepreneur of the Year award when I was a senior in college.

I have worked as a graphic designer for an array of different size companies from startups, all the way to fortune five hundred companies such as Coca-Cola.

I have experience designing logos, branding, UI design, UX research, rapid prototyping, and web development.

I have been a freelance web developer since 2009 and have contributed countless beautiful websites to the internet.

I have served as the creative director for an emerging financial technology startup.

I have served as a UI designer for a non profit, SPLASSH, a company that crowdsources projects about the way we consume information about water.

My motto is to teach by doing. In my courses, you will jump right into the subject and learn to design by actually designing. Recreating app designs and learning as you go is the best way to learn in my opinion.

My goal is to give my students the ability to change their career with the skills they learn in my classes.
