  • Here you will learn the design process, especially about the Goal-Directed Design approach, rather than the features-directed design . Another important thing is about Persona - a representation of users, not just about demographics , but also about behavior . (Posted on Blog)

Borrys Hasian says,

UX/UI GDE

Reading a lot of books about design will make you, surprisingly, an expert in “reading books about design”. For me, I read the book summary, 1-2 chapters, quickly scan the rest, put it down, and think about adopting it to design challenges.
