Introduction

This year has been very significant for me so far. I recently left my full-time position as Product and UX Designer at Food Talk and moved to Jaipur. In past few years, UX Design has become very important part of every tech company. User interface design is gaining great momentum as design takes the central role in all major fields. This course covers user interface design in great detail along with an overview of related fields of UX design, Product design, and many others.
