I’ve finally finished the sixth course out of seven for Google’s UX Design Professional Certificate! I’m almost done with the certificate and I’m excited! This time, I built a responsive web design for a ceramics class sign-up process. I decided I wanted this design to be a bit more minimal on colors since I used so many on my last design. This one is partially finished–I built out every page (I think!) for the desktop design but only the necessary pages to complete the flow for the mobile. I also still have the tablet version to finish. So this will be another project to go back to at a later date once the course is finished. But I’m happy with how it’s turning out. I really liked a lot of the functionality I found in Adobe XD that I couldn’t find in Figma, like repeat grids and auto-animate, but I miss the community library tab that Figma has that I couldn’t find in Adobe XD. Anyways, I start the last course today: Design a User Experience for Social Good & Prepare for Jobs. Hopefully it won’t take as long as the last course. Here I go!
Another course completed
I’m officially done with my first course project and the fifth course in Google’s UX Design Professional Certificate! I’ve got a mobile app design and a case study to go with it. I really like how it turned out for a first project. There were some aspects of the prototyping that I couldn’t figure out that I wanted set up for my app’s flow, so I want to dig into Figma further once I finish this certificate program. The next course is Responsive Web Design in Adobe XD and I’m going to focus on creating the sign-up process for a ceramics studio. I used to enjoy ceramics in high school and would love to get back into it one day, so that’s why I chose it as my focus for this next project. I’m supposed to go through every step I’ve learned so far in the past five courses all in this one, so hopefully it won’t take as long as completing all of those courses did!
I’m almost halfway done with Google’s UX Design Professional Certificate! I finished the third course last night. I really enjoyed making digital wireframes and low-fidelity prototypes. I’m a little anxious going into the fourth course. It’s more research-focused, and I struggled a bit with some of the research portions in the second course, but I’m going to try to power through it so I can continue exploring Figma some more and get into Adobe XD to make some high-fidelity prototypes. I’m really excited by the progress I’m making and I’m going to use that motivation to work through this next course.
