Presentation of the free product design course

Learn the skills a junior product designer needs, starting from the basics, the principles and elements of design, taking a comprehensive tour through methodologies and proper product planning and management, research, interaction and information design, and ending with tracking metrics and next iterations.

The perfect student is someone who is really interested in design, there is no other requirement. The cost of the course is 0€, so you will only need a desire to learn, time available to study and a normal computer (regardless if it is Mac or Windows; here we have come to study design, not to use software).

Learn product design at your own pace

This course is entirely self-managed by you, thanks to hundreds of authors who have contributed quality teaching material to the internet.

This means that you will be 100% responsible for reading the syllabus, creating your notes and being critical in your self-assessment. Further on, we would like in one way or another to offer mentoring to make this path as smooth as possible for you.
