As a UX design practitioner, I’m on a quest for continuous learning, and a crucial part of that has been together with the Interaction Design Foundation.

I currently hold industry-recognized and certifiable certificates in Design Thinking, User Experience Design, Gestalt Psychology, Human-Computer Interaction, Information Visualization, Mobile UX & Usability Testing to name a few.

Interaction Design Foundation & Me

The Interaction Design Foundation is a market leader in online design education. Their courses cover a broad spectrum of UX design from beginner to advanced.


I’ve had the pleasure to deepen my knowledge and gaining certificates in Design Thinking, Usability Testing, Information Visualization, Human-Computer Interaction, Gestalt Psychology, Affordances, UX Management, Interaction Design, & How to Design for VR & AR experiences to name a few.


IDF course certificates are trusted by industry leaders such as IBM, HP, Philips, Accenture and Adobe who train their internal teams with IDF courses & certification. Universities such as MIT and the University of Cambridge include their material in their curricula.

A selection of organisation & institutions who uses for their internal training.

Why I joined the IDF

As a UX designer within an ever-changing industry, I feel like you’re never done learning and that you can always expand in domains you’re already familiar
