“Every developer must also be a bit of a designer”. The development departments of smaller companies in particular often lack one. And the advertising agency or marketing department delivers things that don’t fit technically. Nevertheless, software solutions, websites or apps have to look modern and good and be usable in the long term. In their everyday work, employees have to do UI design and usability on the side – without the appropriate training. This leads to excessive demands and mediocre results. But since design is the key to the sustainable success of your products, it also jeopardises your turnover.

Knowledge transfer with high added value

Training strategy and practical approach

Our training strategy is a balanced mix of theory and practice. In comprehensible blocks, the participants learn the theory and correlations and demonstrate the work steps. These are followed up in practical exercises on their own computers. In doing so, we become as concrete as possible and address your use cases. We share best practices and experiences with you. In this way, the training also becomes a bit of consulting – with practical results.

The knowledge is built up on the basis of a concrete, jointly agreed practical example – preferably from your context. Your participants will take away a lot of know-how as well as real work results. These can later be continued and implemented in practice.
