The semester will start (4-5 sessions) with the introduction into HTML, CSS and Javascript.

After that we will deal 1 session with the possibilities of the Webflow technology.

The rest of the course content will be developed by student projects in conjunction with discussions and single sessions.


Main topics of the course:

  • Webflow
  • prototyping (Sketch, InVision)
  • user experience
  • navigation concept & information architecture

Examination Modalities

It's all about getting really into the topic of interface design and UX. The flexibility, effort and creativity during the working process will be more important than the final outcome.
