UI Design for Web Apps

  • Live class with peers
  • 3 sessions
  • 1 week

Web apps aren’t exciting—what users do with them is. Empower your users and get out of their way.

Mobile can be great fun to design for, but the bread and butter of our work still comes down to desktop-class web app experiences. The larger canvas invites significantly more information at a glance for our users, and we can offer complex functionality at the click of a mouse. In this class we’ll explore best practices for laying out information, navigation, and actions in desktop-focused web apps.

Figma Variables

  • Live class with peers
  • 3 sessions
  • 1 week

Leverage Figma variables to bring superpowers to your design process.

Variables aren’t just for developers anymore! Now, from the comfort of our design workspace, we can unlock the power of more adaptive and flexible design. Boost your designs by adding support for light, dark, and high contrast color modes. Improve usability by supporting multiple densities.

UI Components

  • Live class with peers
  • 3 sessions
  • 1 week

Good UI components are flexible and reusable. Let’s make some!

Yeah, we’ll use Figma, but that’s not really the point. Components are useful because they help you really think about how interfaces are constructed, and play more nicely with others. Figma is a fairly solid means to an end.

What are they saying?

I got to learn so much about the topic: see how others created theirs, get inspiration; and the course helped me complete the design system that is now used by my entire team. Incredibly useful and also great fun to connect with other professionals in the field from all over the world.

For anyone thinking on attending a class with Nevan I cannot recommend him enough as a teacher, and a lot of us working in the industry can attest to the value of his teaching.

Héctor Rebollo

I loved this course and I want to take more of Nevan’s classes. It was great to get more in depth knowledge about building design systems, building flexible components and being more organized in Figma. Nevan is patient and really listens to your questions and answers them thoughtfully.
