Because we help advance your career
UX design is a multi-disciplinary field covering many areas of knowledge. Thankfully, we’ve got 32 courses over a wide range of topics (psychology, interaction, usability, etc.) and difficulty levels to get you covered.
What’s more, you are awarded a Course Certificate once you complete the requirements of each course (with a distinction if you get 90% of the total points).
Course Certificates are a great way for you to show how you’ve gained industry-relevant skills, and can be easily added to your LinkedIn profile and CV—they’re also great for bragging rights if you manage to get a distinction!
Because UX design is a booming industry
Job opportunities are increasing for UX Designers like never before (an estimated 13% increase from 2010 through 2020), and UX Designer pays are moving up – in fact, upwards of $110k in cities like San Francisco and New York.1
Here are some stories of designers we’ve helped grow and find career success:
because we’re good for businesses
The return on investment in good UX is undeniably huge. Companies that invest in great design outperformed the S&P 500 Index by 228% over the past 10 years.2
That’s even before considering the internal cost savings that come with greater productivity, reduced redundancy in workflows, lowered development and maintenance costs, and many more.
At the IDF, we’ve helped many companies achieve marketplace success by focusing on creating great design experiences. Here are some of the companies we’ve worked with:
