ADMCi Openings for Fall Classes in UX

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - September 29, 2014) - Two years after its inaugural set of classes, the American Design and Master-Craft Initiative (ADMCi) is once again accepting applications to The School for Digital Craftsmanship (www.digitalcraftsmanship.org). Professionals in technology, design or management looking to join the growing user-centered (UX) design talent pool can take classes while maintaining their current workload.

"At The School for Digital Craftsmanship we are believers in design and the fact that this skill lies within all of us. It's not about logos and pictures. It's about designing customer experiences and the business processes that will support them," says Deborah Cane, Knowledge Architect at ADMCi and Head of School Operations. "We also believe that with determination and curiosity, anyone can begin learning and applying the language of design in our 10-week evening program."

Tech professionals need to differentiate themselves in a competitive market with design-thinking skills and the tool sets design thinking can provide. In parallel, technology leadership now embraces the idea that companies who truly understand their customers, put their businesses at a competitive advantage. The School for Digital Craftsmanship sits at the intersection of what business needs to learn and what professionals want to learn. As that connector, the school empowers our students to develop high-demand skill sets and helps foment authentic relationships for businesses to engage their own customers. 

"It's clear that user design has been evolving since the beginning of time, but not a lot of people know about the topic in an academic setting. People seem to go to school for graphic design or physical architecture and then, one day, they come across user experience in their workplace and they fall into it," says Matt Vine, an alumnus of the Interaction Design class. Matt understood how valuable a class at the School of Digital Craftsmanship could be to changing his career trajectory. He continues to work directly with mentors he met through the class on his own work in user experience design. 

Individuals looking to gain creative confidence and advance their careers are encouraged to learn more about the four different Fall courses offered -- Interaction Design, Content Strategy and Mobile Device Design -- by reading testimonials from the school's alumni and visiting the website: www.digitalcraftsmanship.org. Classes for the Fall Quarter begin October 13, 2014. A discount for the course can be applied with the code ADMCi14.
