Design is an essential part of providing a great user experience (UX), offering the user what they need in the most efficient and satisfying manner.

You will be introduced to this four-step user interface design cycle and learn how to gather information about what the user needs, how to design and model interfaces based on those needs, and how to evaluate the design to meet the user's end goal.
