Juno Student Success Consultant Nabil Arif has a formal background in UX Design and has experience working as a UX/Product Researcher and Strategist. In this blog post, he breaks down what UX Design is, its powerful impact, and how you can learn to unlock its potential here at Juno!

"Good UX is good business" is a quote that I’ve heard often in the industry, and I’d have to agree - effective design and innovation has the power to create meaningful impact digitally and in person, across all kinds of businesses and communities.

What is UX Design?

User Experience (UX) Design is a human-centered approach towards a product (goods, services, offerings, and/or experiences). UX Design involves building or improving a product so that it is useful, usable, and desirable for its users, customers, or beneficiaries. If you have creative, analytical, and problem-solving skills, learning more about UX Design might be of interest to you!

Why is UX Design important?

No matter what industry you’re in, learning how to design with the user in mind is essential to creating a successful product and business. This in-demand skill set seamlessly merges the following disciplines:

  • Business, Marketing, and Communications
  • Psychology
  • Graphic and Industrial Design
  • Engineering
  • Interface Design

Good UX has the power to help a business thrive through brand loyalty, satisfied customers, and reduced costs (when it comes to fixing usability bugs later down the line). It has the power to improve people's lives, whether it means making a product more accessible to people with disabilities, or simply making an entertaining product that brightens someone's day!

Why you should learn UX Design at Juno

Those with UX Design knowledge are uniquely equipped to problem-solve, take on different kinds of projects, and level up in their careers. At Juno, our UX Design course is created especially for developers, designers, and project managers who are looking to enhance user satisfaction. Through hands-on practice, interactive lessons, and one-on-one mentorship, you’ll learn how to improve the usability, accessibility, and enjoyment of the user experience. You'll also explore the core facets of UX, including research, synthesis, ideation, wireframing, prototyping, and testing - as well as some User Interface (UI) and visual design principles.

You’ll emerge with a valuable skill set to apply to your future work, as well a stunning portfolio-worthy project to show off. Plus, you’ll have access to your UX Design course notes forever - and they’ll be consistently updated with the latest resources and industry trends so you can stay in the loop.

Our UX Design course is now available Live Online, meaning you can learn with us no matter where you're located, with our signature 8-week format designed to fit with a busy schedule.

What are some career options that rely on UX Design?

While Juno's UX Design course is a non-vocational course, if you already have UX-adjacent experience, or if you put more time and effort into building up your UX portfolio through additional projects and learning, you might be able to consider some of these career options in the future! Plus, many of these roles are also remote-friendly, meaning you could work from the comfort of your own home, from anywhere in the world.
