Miami AdSchool has launched its experience design bootcamp, kicking off the proceedings with the announcement of its coveted scholarship.
Taught by Sydney’s top XD experts in four weekly sessions, this 12 week intensive course teaches you the skill-sets needed to work as an experience designer, service designer, CX designer, UX designer or user interface designer. Or, extend your skill-set to stay relevant as a designer, art director and strategist.
Miami AdSchool bootcamps are different from other bootcamps. We put a strong focus on creativity. You’ll learn how to come up with original ideas and apply them to design thinking; how to inject experience style thinking into innovation, then architect your ideas into digital and physical experience spaces.
You’ll create a stand-out portfolio, present it to an industry panel in week 11. Then, in week 12, introduce yourself to some of Sydney’s top XD companies in a five-minute pitch.
When: 23 March 2020.

“I’m ridiculously happy to be working at Clemenger, one of Sydney’s top creative agencies. It wouldn’t have happened without the boot camp. Balancing full time work with four nights a week at Miami, live briefs on the weekends, and beers at the cricketers was a hard graft – but worth every minute.”
Vince Usher, strategist at Clemenger
