Description

Ever wanted to learn how to use Sketch, a powerful application used to design digital products like websites and apps, WHILST supporting an award-winning social enterprise that supports young women in STEM?

This year Founders Factory is extremely excited to host an introductory workshop for non-designers eager to learn Sketch to design interfaces and communicate their ideas visually.

Sketch is a vector-based design tool which has been popular among UX/UI designers since its launch in 2010. It’s now recognised as the industry’s ultimate gadget for macOS, iOS and Web Design. Our half-day beginners workshop will be taught by our superstar Designer, Alex Salas-Wardman. The session is designed to teach you the fundamentals needed to get started, work confidently, and design your own or company website.

All profits from this workshop will be donated to an organisation which is making a dent in UK innovation. The Stemettes’ social enterprise is teaching young girls from the age of 5 how to succeed within Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Your participation in this workshop will help run more HTML workshops targeted at young girls (Stemillions) aged 11 to 15-years-old.

Workshop Agenda:

An intro to the interface: What it all does & where you can find the functions you need
