*A professional certificate* will be awarded by Hong Kong Nang Yan College of Higher Education upon completion of the course.

Students will learn UI/UX design using open source software Penpot, understand the difference between UX (User Experience) and UI (User Interface), learn its application in mobile device, website and game design, understand how to layout the entire interface according to user habits, and at the same time enhance the overall aesthetic sense of the interface and maintain the aesthetic balance of each part.


The course will first guide students to familiarize themselves with common software interfaces, learn the basics of UI/UX such as typography, color, font, and font size, and then teach them to analyze and integrate relevant data through user surveys to form feasible design solutions, and ultimately plan and produce human-centered user interfaces for websites and mobile applications. As a powerful cross-domain development platform, Penpot can fully meet this series of teaching needs.


By explaining the concepts and leading students through the UI/UX design process, the instructor will enable students to acquire knowledge through a combination of theory and practice. Each production case in the course is accompanied by an assignment for students to complete on their own so that the instructor can assess their knowledge at the end of the class. Upon completion of the course, each student/group should be able to design a new user interface for an existing website/app.
