Let’s talk about the wild world of design, specifically UI design. The field is like a high-speed train, constantly advancing at pace, with new technologies and trends always evolving. At Clark, continuous professional development (CPD) is our secret weapon to stay on track and deliver top-notch creative work for our clients.
On a day-to-day basis, the Studio team is always tuned in to new design directions and technologies, but when we decided to undertake the Professional Certificate in UI Design with UX Design Institute, it felt like the perfect opportunity to hit pause in a very busy working schedule to dive a bit deeper into the latest theory and technology in UI design.
Over seven months we immersed ourselves in the principles of killer user interface design, which encompasses everything from layout and interaction design to typography.
The goal is to use those principles to craft responsive websites that effortlessly adapt to desktop, tablet, and mobile devices, providing visitors with friction-free user experiences. Accessibility, too, played a pivotal role in our learning process because everyone deserves an inclusive online experience.
The course wasn’t just about gaining new skills – it shook up our design processes and pushed us to work more deliberately and efficiently. Trust me, it’s no easy feat to balance creative thinking while keeping things organised! But hey, we love a good challenge, and this course delivered in spades.
Now, armed with fresh insights and techniques, we’re eager to put our new UI prowess to the test on future client projects. It’s exciting to tackle new things, embrace our new skills, and add a touch of Clark’s signature flair to create extraordinary digital experiences.
Stay tuned for more design adventures!
