Design Training

A world-class user-experience requires that every level of the enterprise understand the basics of user-centered design. We tailor our training to appropriately meet the needs of your specific audience whether composed of UI Professionals, back-end developers, technical support staff or business and marketing stakeholders.

Training and Coaching

Our experienced staff offers training and coaching at all levels. We have worked with newly formed User Interface Design departments, helping establish UI development process, create templates and glossaries, define services, and understand what needs to be done to successfully establish the department. We also provide one-on-one or group classes in methods, concepts, and tenets of user centered design, from project inception to launch, documentation, and training. We can help your staff add skills to their UI toolboxes and better understand all aspects of the user centered design process.

Development Staff Design Mentoring

These days, development work is frequently completed off-shore or by companies or departments that specialize in web/application development. In this environment, the User Interface is often the first thing to suffer. We mentor development teams as they complete your project, reviewing their work and explaining to them how to code with basic tenets of user-centered design in mind.

User-Experience 101 (for Non-Designers)

Have you ever championed the merits of the user centered design process to business partners who don’t see the value? Have your developers ever scoffed at the part of your project plan dedicated to User Interface design development? Do your stakeholders ever urge you to cut corners in the UI process to shorten deadlines or cut budget?

Our UI 101 class is designed to teach non-UI staff about the importance of the user centered design process. This class focuses on ROI of usability and provides an overview of the basic tenets and methods involved in User Interface design development.
