Web Design (UX/UI) – Beginners

Web design (UX / UI) is a prerequisite for page life. It is the presentation of information in a visual way in order to achieve the best user experience and to maximize its convenience and benefits. The web designer must ensure not only an attractive image of the website, informativeness, but also convenience – to combine the provided information, images and navigation: in other words, feel the user needs. Eye-pleasing and user-friendly website web design is definitely part of a successful image.

CodeAcademy School of Programming is a place where students’ curiosity and the knowledge accumulated by professionals meet.

UX/UI Designer @Reiz Tech

A big thank you to CodeAcademy for helping me build a solid foundation for starting a new career, after deciding to change my career path and go for UX/UI design. After UX/UI design beginners course, naturally I took UX/UI design advanced course, which opened the door to a new career. The lectures were very interesting, encouraged me to be interested more deeply, and the final project was the application of the acquired knowledge. I am very satisfied with my decision to choose CodeAcademy and thank you to the lecturer for interesting lessons and for giving me a solid start to my career.
