Together, we’ll learn and practice some of the most essential concepts in UX design in our challenge brief and work in teams to design an amazing solution based on a recorded usability test, where we’ll improve how CityPup helps people adopt dogs.

‚úÖ Agenda

ūüĒ欆¬†¬†Next, we’ll¬†watch a real usability test,¬†and find the areas where we can most improve this app.

ūü﹬†¬†¬†We’ll learn how to conduct a¬†competitive analysis, to get inspiration from other websites that offer a better experience.

ūü鮬†¬†¬†Then, we‚Äôll work together to¬†solve the usability issues with¬†sketching and high fidelity designs in Figma.
