💌 Design bootcampers will spend 10 weeks learning the fundamentals of product design and design process. Bootcampers will be paired up and work over the course of the semester in developing a design case study where they can apply the skills they learn throughout the bootcamp and end up with a piece they can include in their design portfolio.

Expectations of Students
💪 Stay committed
- Show up to Bootcamp lectures! They are mandatory!
- While we are not giving you a letter grade for your work/participation in the bootcamp, your attendance, participation, & work ethic (are you doing your homework? etc) will be taken into account when recommending boot campers for BoG Designer roles at the end of the semester.
- The Bootcamp should take up between 3-5 hours per week, including class time.
- Some weeks will be way less time, while others may require more time.
💻 Do your work
- You get out of this boot camp what you put into it. You need to actually do the assignments and participate in class in order to effectively learn and be able to apply the design and research principles taught.
- Do your Weekly UI assignments. These are weekly, one-off mini-assignments to practice honing your visual design/user interface skills. These are not optional unless otherwise specified. We will randomly select 3 students at the beginning of each class to present their Week UI assignments.
- Do your project work. You will work on a semester-long project with an assigned partner. Each week, you will have a different task related to this assignment. You will have 2 mini-checkpoint presentations throughout the semester; however, we (the instructors) will not be checking your progress every week so it is imperative you stay disciplined and do the work in a timely manner yourself. Save yourself the stress and don’t put off the whole project until the last week.
