Every session, we will tackle a design prompt with real-world constraints, which you can use to build your portfolio, then get a job! If only it were that easy...
Here’s some examples:
A payment service in Ukraine wants to make a universal, recognizable, multi-language button for customers to donate money while making a purchase. Consider what it would look like on small screens and low-resolution screens as well.
Create the “first encounter” card state for a dating app that wants to de-emphasize profile pictures and instead emphasize their personalities. Create multiple versions, and animate your favorite.
We’ll do two of these every week. That’s 10 portfolio pieces over 5 weeks! Excited yet?

Before, during, in between, and after our planned programming, we’ll be telling jokes, performing silly skits, drinking (your preferred drinks), and getting to know each other! Creativity doesn’t stop with designing— look forward to these fun events and traditions this quarter:
Tote bag making!
Sh*tty design breakdowns!
Fun design challenges!
And many more...
Some questions you might have
I’m completely new to UX. How do I get familiar with it?
We’ve all gotta start somewhere. We’ve curated a quick set of resources for absolute beginners to get familiar with UX and Figma. Check it out here!
Yes! However, as always, we at Iter8 find it really important that our members set their intentions and show up consistently. Therefore, we are doing an RSVP system for all interested in joining. It helps us know how many team leaders there should be, and also helps our lovely Treasurer estimate how many donuts to buy :)
What happened to projects?
We’ll be starting team and client projects in the Winter. Our UX Bootcamp will hopefully help you feel prepared to pursue our future projects, or even lead one!
