This course explores the design of compelling visual user interface solutions for mobile devices from concept to screen, resulting in clear prototypes to help designers better communicate with developers. Building on their existing knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite, students use industry-standard prototyping tools for collaboration and workflow, as they generate content in the layout editor of their choice. Students design a fully realized prototype with every action area of consequence simulated in order to thoughtfully develop and test the user experience. Ultimately, critical reviews and usability testing will be enacted so that students experience a complete cycle of design, editing, testing, refinement and finalization of their fully developed user interface (UI) prototype.

- This is an asynchronous online course with no live class sessions or set meeting times. The course will include video presentations, detailed tutorials and discussion forums. Assignments will be sequenced so that one leads to the next and will include project deadlines. Students receive individualized support for idea development and critique of work. To keep pace with the course, students should expect to log in daily to CE Link, our online course management platform.
- This course requires access to Adobe Creative Cloud, or some of its creative tools such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. Monthly subscriptions can be purchased from a variety of pricing plans directly from Adobe. Please visit the Adobe website for cost and downloading instructions. Be sure to check "minimum system requirements" for your computer before purchasing.
