Posted by Flatiron School  /  May 10, 2022

Community sparks creativity! Flatiron School’s Product Design course is not just lectures and individual work. Joshua Robinson, Product Design Director, gives a sneak peek into full-time students’ daily routine, which is filled with hands-on projects across UX design, UI design and more – as well as endless opportunities for collaboration.

Morning Standup & Workshop

Make your daily stand a habit and reap the psychological benefits. You will attend a short, group check-in where you will set your goals for the day and discuss any obstacles. Instructors and peers will be there to keep you on track.

Participate in interactive workshops led by your instructor. You will practice research methods, sketching, designing in Figma and Webflow, prototyping, animation, usability testing, and so much more. You will learn to present your work to peers and to upskill quickly by receiving feedback.

Lunch Break

Keep your energy up with a healthy lunch. Join a Zoom lunch water cooler with your cohort or invite other cohorts! Or, watch a presentation together and discuss it over lunch.

Afternoon Lab & Projects

Attend a lab kickoff with your instructor to learn what you’ll be working on the rest of the day. During daily labs, you can dive deeper into the material you learned in the morning lesson. Build something amazing with your peers in the Figma lab file.

Evening Cool Down

Check in with your cohort and instructor at the end of the day. Did you accomplish what you set out to do? Daily check-ins keep you accountable and on track.
