Week 6 was all about Visual Design and after the last 5 weeks it was a nice change. There was still much to learn, but it was a little less intense.
Andrew was taking a back seat this week as Tricia was running the class. She’s from America and has run the UXDI course in New York and London so knew exactly what she was doing.
The aim of the week was to take our app designs from Week 1 and make them look nice. To do this we used a programme called Sketch (although some people stuck with things like Photoshop if that’s what they were used to).
Not only could we make our old designs look nice but we could fix the problems which were now obvious to us after 5 weeks of intensive UX training.
