The course is based on practice: you will create a landing page for your portfolio. We will go through all stages of UI design: from the brief and paper prototypes to preparing the layouts for development.

The knowledge from this course will remain relevant even after many years when all the tools and trends have already changed several times. Here you will learn design, not just the design tools.
