What is UX design? It's a classic digital design question that many people looking to enter the tech side of design ask themselves. Fortunately for us here at Kenzie Academy, we have an amazing team of design experts who both teach and practice UX design regularly.

For this event, our very own digital design master Ryan Robinson will walk you through exactly what UX design is, some of its key elements and help answer some of the questions you might have about the digital design industry. We look forward to seeing you there!
