Education Summit

Filling the Gap in Design Education. For Free.

February 4, 2017 3:15 PM - 4:00 PM

The continual rise of the digital economy in Croatia over the past ten years has created a strong need for experienced digital media designers. However, visual communication courses offered by Croatian universities and colleges are mostly focused on print media. Only a few courses even scratch the surface of digital design. Design students in Croatia are eager to be a part of this new economy. While they can teach themselves with online resources, online education still can’t compete with the teamwork, practice, and feedback of real-life design.

This is why Infinum started Infinum Design Academy, a free 8-week course in UX/UI design for design students and recent graduates. The program offers a combination of free lectures and practical exercises through which students get a first-hand experience in designing functional and aesthetically pleasing user interfaces. This talk will explore how this program helps fill the gap in design education.
