“Design thinking is the magical balance between business and art; concept and execution; intuition and logic”—in the first phase of the Design Thinking lectures you will gain an overview of the design process and focus on problem framing and discovery. You will then jump right into working on a real design prompt and start practicing the critical thinking and synthesis skills expert UI/UX designers are known for.
In the second phase of the Design Thinking lectures, you will start prototyping actual solutions to the problems you recognized and defined during the first phase. You will learn how professional UI/UX designers use prototyping for aligning a team, for visualizing a future scenario, and for giving life to an idea.
The last week of lectures is all about learning effective communication—which is an essential skill for all UI/UX designers. Here you will learn how to defend your design work to any client, even the clients from hell who can be extremely difficult to work with. Success is always in good communication. You will get the best practice tips from the seasoned presenter and public speaker Joe Howard. His tips and guidance will help you see right through even the toughest customer.

Edijs is a talented designer and a great lecturer. Learning web design under his guidance was easy, as he was always in the reach to give fair feedback and tips to improve work. He made us not only good designers, but also great mates. His communication and leading skills are truly amazing.
Until now, this has been one of my favourite learning experiences!
Throughout the bootcamp I learned how to conduct user research, usability tests, wireframes, do competitive sets, and design high fidelity apps and website designs, each class was fun, yet full of valuable information, and the instructors were always waiting to help and guide you further if needed.
Edijs is a great teacher, designer, and mentor. As a self-learner like myself, he has inspired me to push hard, learn and make an effort to achieve bigger goals and become a better designer. Slava’s passion for UX and research opened my eyes to a new level of expertise.

Idea Partners UX/UI Bootcamp gave me something priceless — The course awoke my interest in studying new things. It also helped me to form a habit of learning. I was inspired by teachers who love what they do and share their passion, excitement, and knowledge. The course balanced the practical and theoretical part, gave insights into the world of UX/UI, and introduced me to numerous new friends and colleagues who are always there for some discussion.
I would recommend this course to my friends because this course is really to prepare you to become a good UI/UX designer, not just teaching you how to use the tools and create pretty pictures. This course guided and prepared my mindset & taught me practical knowledge needed to become a UI/UX designer. The teachers has given me the helping hand when needed and guide me to prepare for my own portfolio, also shared with the class their own experiences in the industry.

I started the course as a beginner, without any previous experience in the field, and it was an amazing hands-on learning experience! I learned about the complete design process going step by step from a problem statement till the final prototype. There was an open, informal and friendly atmosphere and it was easy to ask questions and receive feedback from teachers who are all experts in their own field of UX design.
