UX is multidisciplinary by nature. I focus on the practical aspects: common design patterns, proficiency with design & prototyping tools, and understanding the tech.
I co-developed the 12-week UX curriculum at General Assembly and taught several sections of the class. We had some excellent outcomes and a number of students went on to get UX jobs at companies like Spotify, American Express, and Booker.
Given my agency background, I am well positioned to introduce the topic of UX to agency staff. Below is an adapted version of a presentation originally delivered at McCann-Erickson.
