How To Get Started In User Experience (UX) Design


Have you ever wondered what is User Experience (UX) Design, and what it takes to get into this exciting new industry?


User Experience (UX) Design is the process of understanding and designing to solve problems in order to create satisfaction. UX solves problems for real people in their real contexts.


The backbone of UX Design encompasses a person’s interaction with any product. It concerns itself with ensuring a user’s needs are met through meaningful designs and solutions. With an expected 10% increase in the demand for UX Designers in the next 5 years and the median mid-level UX Design salary at $105,000 in Australia, there is no time like getting into the field of UX as the present.


At our free event, How to Get Started in UX, together with industry experts we’ll explore:

  • An overview of the UX industry
  • How you can start developing your own UX portfolio
  • Tactics, tools, and approaches to help you get started in the UX industry

Robert Williams

Academy Xi UX Lead & User Experience Transform Instructor

Known to empower his students through the notion that everyone has the ability to understand and create strategy, Robert says, “I believe UX design is intuitive; sometimes it just takes a little prod or influence to reassure that intuition.”

Robert’s digital story began with a degree in visual design where his career took off in Melbourne with numerous roles developing consumer facing web products. Since then, he has studied multiple multimedia and design courses which have propelled him into UX roles for Optus, Vodafone, PwC and Symplicit.
