User Experience (UX) Design Systems and the Screen

Follow a project brief through the process of research, design, and prototyping. Along the way, participate in a decision making and refinement process by considering how people use and respond to the design. Learn how to ensure that accessibility and equity are integrated into the design process from the beginning. Explore how design systems and reusable components lead to thoughtful digital experiences, and how responsiveness, flexibility, and sustainability are fundamental to designing for screens and across platforms.
