UI Design for Web Apps


(6 ratings)


4 Days


Cohort-based Course

Web apps aren’t exciting—what users do with them is. Empower your users and get out of their way.

Course overview

Design web apps that work

Mobile can be great fun to design for, but the bread and butter of our work still comes down to desktop-class web app experiences. The larger canvas invites significantly more information at a glance for our users, and we can offer complex functionality at the click of a mouse. In this class we’ll explore best practices for laying out information, navigation, and actions in desktop-focused web apps.

Who is this course for


You. You aren’t in design for personal glory. You want to see your users be proud of their work, not yours.


Designers who care about information architecture, business goals, and user needs.


Designers who enjoy meeting other designers from around the world and nerding out together.
