Web Design and UX Design Courses in Cardiff
Welcome to Blue Sky Graphics-gateway to quality web and UX design education! Web and UX design is one of the most common fields in the world today. It is a career field with tremendous potential for growth, whether for part-time and full-time work, for a company or for self-employment. If you choose to work on advertisements or advertising materials, web design is a great choice.
If you want to learn design skills easily at home, then Blue Sky graphics is the right place for you. Not only do we teach you skills, but we also show you how to make practical use of them.
The 3 Ps – passion, proficiency and professionalism are our core principles and we wish to pass on the same attributes to our students. Our online courses are delivered in a one-to-one environment where you can get the tutor’s undivided attention so you can learn better!
One of the courses that we teach is the Web Design course, which takes place over a period of 8 months. The Web Design course includes the possibility of developing and reorganizing existing websites using specialized technological techniques and methods to explore the layout, vision and usability of a website.
There will also be training in other areas, such as web design, colour theory, and architectural concepts. It’s much easier to have a Web domain so you can quickly apply the information you have gained as you move through the course. The use of WordPress completes a large part of web design. With WordPress you can use the configuration of your search engine to support your website in an organic form.
Elements of Web Design
Layout: The overall look of the website is of course a key component of web design. First impressions are critical so as soon as the page loads you want to stun your audience. Users only take 50 milliseconds to form an opinion about your website or company, and that will decide if they are staying or going away. This means that your design must suit a few calming adjectives: simple, familiar, intuitive, smooth and accessible.
Use plenty of white space (or padding and margins) to allow your site room elements to breathe, and use grid-based designs to keep articles of design structured and orderly. Strong photographs, pictures or graphics provide your text with additional detail, but ensure that the photographs complement each other and reflect your brand.
Colour Scheme: Your colour palette and fonts will inform your visitors directly about your site’s opinions and will be the starting point for most newbie designers. As for selecting a colour scheme, it can make this a relatively painless process by paying attention to your brand or business backgrounds – along with your target market demographics. When the primary colour is selected, choose the colour palette you want. You’ll want a complimentary colour on the other side of the colour wheel if you are trying for your audience to concentrate on a particular piece of content or click or provoke a specific form of interaction.
WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) and is a tool for the creation and maintenance of a website without coding expertise. The software allows just about every part of the website to be customised.
The WordPress network offers plenty of customized options if you want to build an affiliate marketing network (or some other way to monetize the site).
Company Websites: You can share information using WordPress, provide contact details, incorporate your branding and build a strong online presence, whether big or small.
Elementor is a drag and drop website designed by WordPress. You can create beautiful pages with a visual editor. It is intended to create interactive websites quickly. This WordPress plugin is a complete solution which enables the management of all aspects of web design on a single platform.
Adobe Experience Design is a Prototyping method. XD incorporates lightweight layout and drawing tools with a simple click to simulate a particular program or web board navigation. The results can be published directly from the application as an interactive online presentation, which can be easily shared by project partners or customers.
You can call it a wire-framing program, but you can add vectors or raster, text blocks, etc. as you go along, so the wireframe end feels much more like a complete product than a wireframe.
UX UI Design
UI Architecture is a Virtual User Interface. That includes the click-on buttons, the text they’re displaying, the photos, sliders, data entry fields and all the other things the user interacts with. It involves configuration of a computer, switches, animations of an interface and some other micro-interaction. And, after taking the advanced course in UX UI design from Blue Sky Graphics, you can effectively determine the appearance of every website. This course is conducted over an 8 month span and is ideally fit for those who already have any experience of graphic design.
What does it mean to be a UX Designer?
Whether you’re landing a job at a start-up or a bigger business, your position as UX designer will be directly involved in the process to make a product functional, accessible and pleasant for the target consumer audience the company intends. Whether you’re managing a large team of UX designers or flying solos, the UX process itself remains the same.
During the design process you will be thinking mainly about how your product / service will satisfy the customer’s actions already. Your product’s design revolves around functionality and usability, rather than colours or images (these are later developed by a graphic designer).
The user researcher’s job is based around communication: visiting user groups, both online, in-person and over the phone, gathering data through interviews, surveys, conversations, and task analysis to inform product design.
Job Outlook for Web and UX Designers
The few different settings you can work in include the following:
1. Work for industry-related companies, like design consultancies or branding agencies (agency graphic designer)
2. Work with any company (in-house web designer)
3. Work remotely on your own (freelance web or UX designer)
Work from Home
Freelancing has often been a means of practically obtaining significant amounts of money irrespective of what the degree of knowledge is, as internet work is more know-how-dependent than skills.
Platforms such as Fiverr, freelancer and People per hour feature teenagers, housewives and people finding secondary jobs, an opportunity to show off their talents and raise a lot of money! This gives you the chance to work from home for any agency or company that hires you. All you need is a unique portfolio to get started!
