What is it about?

The workshop will go through the main steps that you need to design a native app for iOS and Android. You will understand interaction patterns and the visual style of each platform. Besides that, you will learn what are the good practices to design a touch interface.

Who is it for?

If you are a designer looking to make a step forward in your career, this is the right place for you. You don’t need to code or have experience designing apps. Content is also suitable for programmers, project managers and other non-designer profiles.

Contents are pretty straightforward and easy to follow. Some design knowledge is appreciated, but if you are not a designer you won’t have problems.

What's in it for me?

You’ll learn how to follow a step-by-step process to design a mobile app prototype. You’ll also learn about interactions patterns and visual style for both iOS and Android, as well as how to use tools to prototype with interactions, gestures and animations. From drawing on paper, class will move to other more advanced tools (but still easy to use). With these tools, you’ll be able to build a working prototype that will resemble a real product.


Main content:

  • Mobile design process
  • Interaction patterns
  • Design style in iOS and Android
  • Designing for touch
  • Animations and micro-interactions
  • Working with developers

After the workshop you will:

  • Know how to approach a mobile design project
  • Know how to use different interaction patterns
  • Understand key differences between iOS and Android
  • Have an overview of design tools
  • Be a more a more complete designer for today’s market needs

From idea to reality, it is important to not lose time until getting a working prototype. This workshop will teach you tools for rapid prototyping. It is useful for non-designers too.

How will I learn

We usually work in small groups of 2-3 people. Then, you’ll make some short practice exercises, following a hands-on approach. We’ll use more time for the main exercises. We’ll reserve some time at the end of the workshop for you to ask whatever you need to know.

Just bring your computer (PC or Mac) and a bit of enthusiasm. We’ll provide you with the rest of the materials you’ll need to work.
