Experienced professionals will deepen their knowledge and will get a fresh perspective — you’ll feel yourself more confident by the end of the programme, knowing you’re working on a world-class level of competence. Younger designers and product managers will learn modern digital product design practices firsthand. And of course it’s a fantastic networking opportunity.

UK is one of the most advanced countries in UX and interface design. It has a vast number of design studios who create groundbreaking products. It developed a strong start-up scene with lots of young and successful companies that create a competitive product market. Also due to an early development of a service-based economy many of the classical businesses invest in design as a part of their strategy. And of course many of the technological giants have offices in London. As a result, London has accumulated a great number of brilliant world-renowned designers. Plus UK was always known for its systematic approach, so it is definitely a place to learn how to deal with projects big and small.

This course is a mix of lectures and workshops, all conducted at designers’ natural working environment that gives even better perspective on how they create the most successful products. This experience will boosts your skills, bring new connections and positive emotions.

List of speakers and agencies involved in this programme will be announced soon.
