2012 UX Bootcamps

26 Dec

We’re really pleased to announce the following UX Bootcamps for the first quarter of 2012.

All these bootcamps will be held in a central London location and focus on transferring really practical skills you’ll be able to put into practice immediately. In fact, you’ll start applying them to real projects DURING the bootcamp!

Less yammering, more hammering (see our learning design principles)

  • Cognitive Psychology UX Bootcamp – 10-11 February (NEW)

with Joe Leech, User Experience Director, CX Partners  Price: £350+VAT

Don’t just learn cool things about how the human mind works, learn how to apply it to your design work.


  • Information Architecture UX Bootcamp – 9-10 March (NEW)

with Mags Hanley, Management By Design Price: £350+VAT
Less theory and more practice will help you learn the Information Architect’s methods of analysis and design. Combining the properly nerdy art of IA with techniques you can apply immediately to help your users find the content they seek.

  • Visual Design UX Bootcamp – 26-28 April (RETURNING)

with Mark Boulton, Mark Boulton Design
and Joe Lanman, User Experience Designer, Reed.co.uk
Optional Fireworks training: £150 + VAT
Visual Design Bootcamp: £350+VAT
It is difficult to convey how amazing this book camp was the first time around – suffice to say those who attended in September are still talking about it.

Start with an optional day of fun Fireworks training with Joe (if you’d rather not use Photoshop) then put yourself in the experienced and ridiculously talented hands of Mark Boulton to learn how to make everything look so much better than you’ve been able to before. There’s grids, typography, some colour theory, and regular design critique sessions, but most of all, there’s the tips and guidance you get from working on projects with a great designer that you’ll never get from a book.

Tickets for these bootcamps will be available from midday on 5 January 2012 and are limited to 12 participants.


Unfortunately, Prototyping in Code UX Bootcamp is on hiatus for the time being due to our amazing tutor Anna taking a break from speaking/tutoring. Anna is such a big part of the great success of the previous Prototyping in Code Bootcamps that it wouldn’t be the same without her so we’re going to cross our fingers and hope she’s feeling up to it soon.


We’re hoping to put together some bootcamps on Copywriting, Accessibility and possibly an Advanced Prototyping in Code later in the year and to re-run any of the others that are particularly popular, so if these dates don’t work for you, let us know you’re interested.
