Learn how to think like a UX Designer, not just the tools and techniques.
The GrowthX Academy UX Design curriculum is designed to give you a full understanding of UX processes, methodologies, tools, and techniques — empowering you to craft beautiful solutions for users. You will be challenged to demonstrate understanding and mastery of essential skills for user experience design.
I have taught at Academy of Art University, General Assembly, Springboard, Bloc, UX Academy (Designlab), CareerFoundry, and other programs. All of those programs have their pros and cons, but I was not seeing a fully fleshed out program that I thought prepared students for careers as UX Designers.
As someone with over 15-years of experience in the industry, I felt there needed to be a more developed program. I started off teaching this program in-person and learned a lot. I hope to take those learnings and share them online with all of you.
Learn about doing discovery research, in-depth interviewing, competitive analyses, surveys, and secondary research.
Using the insights you gained from your discovery research, create personas and experience journeys to explain your research findings.
Learn about Usability Heuristics, creating Expert Reviews, and doing Task Analyses.
Learn about information architecture, taxonomy, card sorting, and create sitemaps from your insights.
Prepare for wireframing and prototyping by creating user flows from the task analyses you did earlier.
Iterate on wireframes and add annotations for clear hand-off to developers.
You'll learn how to evaluate your design decisions by doing Usability Testing and other evaluative techniques.
"Julia is truly a one-of-a-kind mentor and manager. She gives you enough freedom to let you learn things on your own while guiding you when needed. She is a kind and compassionate mentor who does everything she can, even more of what is required, to help everyone she mentors succeed in whatever they would like to achieve. Sometimes, she even believes more on what her students can achieve than they themselves."
Product Designer, ZapLabs
"She is a true people developer that is dedicated to the success of her students. I can't thank her enough for investing in my growth as a designer, a colleague, and as a person. Even though she pivoted from being a self made designer (that has worked with a lot of big brand companies) to teaching design, she remains passionate about UX (and very active in the community). She keeps her design knowledge up to date and incorporates the learnings into the course curriculum."
"She is a great mentor, very approachable & well versed with UX concepts and latest industry trends. Not only I was able to get a good hang of UX concepts, but also was able to develop a great portfolio with her guidance, which I believe is the key to stepping into the UX industry. Apart from imparting knowledge, Julia brings her positive outlook, giving and caring attitude to each and every situation at hand and helps her students make the best of time during the program."
