How you'll learn

Our UX methodology


Situation analysis

We teach you how to understand the starting point of the design project, recognize the hidden requirements and how to derive a research plan from it. We show how to conduct user interviews and how you can consolidate the results in a meaningful way. In the end everyone has a new well-founded understanding of the problem based on empirical facts.


Solution design

We show you which fundamental characteristics good interfaces have and which psychological principles are behind them. You get to know different creativity methods which you can use to design solutions to the problems identified in the situation analysis. You learn how to consolidate ideas into a concept.


Solution validation

We show you how you can test your concept. Based on a validation plan you build an interactive prototype with which you then perform user tests.

Master21 provided me with a very holistic introduction to programming and the toolkit necessary to independently translate imagination into code. Learning the basics of how to code opened up many new avenues to think about, approach and solve everyday problems.

Jessica List

CFO Ringier Africa & Asia

In times of digitization and transformation, digital skills are key for our work and daily life. Master21 teaches the digital language - coding - in a practical way with a touch of theory. Knowing basic skills of coding is freedom and makes independent. The codeweek gave me insights how to approach technical challenges and broadened my interest in tech.

Aileen Zumstein

Founder and CEO of aizu

We organized an inhouse workshop because we wanted our non-tech people to get a better understanding. Master21 explained a complicated topic simply, with an ideal mix between theory and practice. The teachers shared their wide knowledge with patience, passion and humour. What a great insight into the world of code.
