At our request, Everett took a three day class (UX Design Essentials) and distilled it down into an enlightening and comprehensive one day class for our entire software engineering team. As company founder and president I had expected to sit in only for the first hour or two to get the flavor of the class. I found myself staying for the entire day and found every minute valuable and insightful.

UX Design Essentials workshop was very helpful in improving my web and UI design process. As an experienced visual designer, I often get caught up with current web design trends and forget that the user must have a simple, functional, and useful experience on our site. This class has helped me develop proactive tools that I can use to determine if my design will meet our users’ expectations as well as our style and brand expectations BEFORE I start my visual design process. I found in particular that understanding the concept of scenarios and personas was very important and may completely change my workflow!

Everett’s UX Design Essentials is a great way to get the user-centered design process in one practical, condensed workshop. It is current information that can be used immediately in projects. The opportunity to practice the teaching during the class is extremely helpful to solidify some of the principles and techniques and be able to use them again while referencing the slides back at the office.
I would definitely recommend this course as a great introduction on user-centered design and digital interaction design specifically.
