COMMLD 510C: User Interface and Visual Design

Course Description

In today’s digital age, user interface (UI) and visual design have become integral components of the modern user experience (UX). Whether it’s a website, mobile app, or software interface, UI design plays a pivotal role in shaping how people interact with digital products and services. The way it looks, feels, and functions profoundly impact user satisfaction and engagement.

This course will provide beginning students with a fundamental understanding of visual design principles (layout using typography, colors, images, and other graphic elements), and UI best practices (research, navigation systems, component libraries, accessibility, prototyping, testing, and much more).

By the end of this 10-week course, students will have the basic design skills and production knowledge to create user-centered digital interfaces.
