Visual Elements of User Interface Design

This course is a part of UI / UX Design, a 4-course Specialization series from Coursera.

This design-centric course examines the broad question of what an interface is and what role a designer plays in creating a user interface. Learning how to design and articulate meaning using color, type, and imagery is essential to making interfaces function clearly and seamlessly. Through a series of lectures and visual exercises, you will focus on the many individual elements and components that make up the skillset of an interface designer. By the end of this course, you will be able to describe the key formal elements of clear, consistent, and intuitive UI design, and apply your learned skills to the design of a static screen-based interface. This is the first course in the UI/UX Design Specialization, which brings a design-centric approach to user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) design, and offers practical, skill-based instruction centered around a visual communications perspective, rather than on one focused on marketing or programming alone. These courses are ideal for anyone with some experience in graphic or visual design and who would like to build their skill set in UI or UX for app and web design. It would also be ideal for anyone with experience in front- or back-end web development or human-computer interaction and want to sharpen their visual design and analysis skills for UI or UX.

Simple, easy to follow and understand and something that can be very useful to even professionals.

Great content, thoughtful assignment prompts and easy to follow.

graphic design in 4 reviews

I have a degree in Graphic Design so I wanted to expand in UX & UI.

Is a very good course for anyone but you must have a graphic design base.

If not, the course suggests you to take it's own graphic design course.

Even if he were not a graphic designer it would be a material of rapid learning.

The theory seemed like something you would already know but I feel like they should have given more incentive to learning about key graphic design and UI/UX concepts that could be used practically.

I would have loved some more readings/video resources but it was still an enjoyable experience to work on the assignments and I learned a lot more while grading the assignments of my peers.

I think some of my peers really need to do that before submitting any work in this course.

Thanks all of my classmates who have reviewed my peers.
