Ever had trouble navigating a website? Felt lost as you moved from section to section and just left the site out of frustration? We all have. Chances are, the designers of those sites didn't have much experience with User Experience and User Interface Design, also known as GUI. In this course, you'll be introduced to the basics of GUI and User Experience (UX). You'll be preparing interface designs for website creation and mock-ups and for mobile interfaces. You'll also examine screen-based image optimization and page layout techniques in detail. So, hopefully, people navigate your sites with smiles on their faces.
